Hey guys,

I'm new and looking to build out my 5.1 system. In my living room I've mounted the TV above the fireplace. But since the fireplace is already tall, I only have about 4" max between the top of the mantle and the bottom of the TV. So I need to find a slim center channel that can deliver the best sound.

Does anyone have any recommendation?

Thanks!

Move your TV up another 4-6" so you can fit a typical center speaker?

I can't move it up another 4-6" because the tv is already at a high height. Thanks for the recommendation cconner, but those centers are about 5.5". I need to find one less than 4"

I figured let it slip behind the TV 1.5"

The Cambridge Audio S50 is just over 4 inches tall and is excellent.

Maybe you can put the TV on something 3/4 inch thick; a piece of oak shelving or ??
