All you guys miss the point of using the speaker distance settings in all receivers and pre/pros.
If you have the center sitting in front of a rptv, as I do, then you either set that distance to your seat in the setup menu. That distance will be shorter than the distances to the main L/R speakers, thus there will be a delay of a few mil sec on the center so that sound will reach the seated position at the same time as the mains.
Or if the receiver uses delay settings instead of distance settings, then you add a few mil sec to the center.
No matter where you put the center, above or below the screen, the baffle needs to be at least flush with what ever it is sitting on. Having it forward an inch is even better. In both cases you eliminate early reflections created by the face of the tv, shelf, table, cabinet or what ever.
Some people prefer to have their center above the screen, others prefer it below. You have to decide for yourself.
