Has anyone found a good center channel speaker stand that works with the CMC2 S2? Because of where my screen is mounted, the stand needs to be about 14" tall maximum. Pretty much the only one I have found is this one by VTI:

http://www.standsandmounts.com/vtidf...anddfc-19.aspx

That one looks okay, but I was hoping for something nicer. Those out there that have a big B&W center channel on a stand, what are you using?

At this point, as long as it fits the CMC2 S2, I would take recommendations for low-profile furniture as well

I also have the CMC2 and I use http://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpa...=960&keys=keys

Works well and when setup with the rest of the speakers/subs it blends right in and looks great.

***EDIT*** Oops, I didn't see your requirement for 14" before. I think this one is 18".

I've been out of the speaker game for quite a while, as you can tell from my equipment, but I am considering upgrading from a 7.1 to an 11.1 setup.

Currently, I have B&W 603 or 604 full tower speakers for the L, R, LB, and RB along with a pair of DS3 for the LS and RS.

I would like to upgrade to an 11.1 setup while keeping all my current equipment in place and avoid having to wall mount any additional speakers unless there is a noticeable quality difference in doing so.

At the moment, I am looking at Pioneer SP-T22A-LR to avoid wall mounting:

And SVS Prime Elevation, which probably would involve mounting:

https://www.svsound.com/products/prime-elevation

Is there any issue with using either of these speakers with my currently equipment? Are there other alternatives I should be looking at?

Thanks!

It's a very nice setup but the acoustics seems to be quite terrible for the speakers of this kind - this is basically all glass from behind and to the sides right? There'll probably be a major improvement by placing a diffuser (can be nicely designed) in between the speakers, a good diaphragmatic base trap behind the speakers and diffusers at the early side reflection points.

Hi all,

Quick question. Does the CM10S2 plinths add any type of decoupling properties besides look good on the CM10 S2's? Or is it better to use true decoupling like the IsoAcoustics GIAA isolation feet? I am using Auralex Subdudes II to decouple these speakers but I may need to move them when I set up my 7.2 setup and place the LS and RS on the sides of my couch and I need the height the Auralex Subdude II offers for my setup. Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated. I understand buying another pair of Subdude II platforms is the easiest and most economical method however, my CM10 S2's are worth it. :-) Thanks in advance all.
