Ideas for mounting bar above your flatscreen?
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I would post links to them in this post, but I don't have the privilege to post URL's yet, so I will post right after this, my third post. Does that make sense?
Here's Davyo's explanation of the Home depot method: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...2#post17808742
And here are pictures of what it looks like: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...2#post18319032
Hope that helps

I recall a post where someone used supplies found at Home Depot which used Velcro attached to the back of the set. Just can't find the post. Also, there are aftermarket brackets out there although I can only find the one I posted the link on. From what I read, the sound is far improved if the soundbar is above the TV vs. below so that's what I'm shooting for.
Hey Capecodguy,, that might have been my post you were refuring to,,, I made a soundbar bracket with stuff I got from HomeDepot and it worked pretty well.
I have also mounted soundbars with velcro on the top bezel of my flat screens when the soundbar was light enough and the displays bezel was wide enough.
And yes,, the sound from ANY bar is greatly improved when mounted up higher than lower,, its made a huge difference for me with every soundbar I have ever owned.
On a side note, I just got a soundbar bracket from http://soundbarbrackets.com/ and I gota say I think its pretty slick,, I have not used it yet but do plan on using it when my new'est Vizio bar arrives (the Vizio is much to heavy for the velcro trick), anyhow, with HomeDepot you will end up spending about $20.00 which is cheaper than the $50.00 for soundbarbrackets.com , but I kinda think the bracket is worth it,,, just my opinion of course.
On a side note,, I wonder if they got the idea for the bracket from reading my postings of how to make one,,,,, jeeze, that would suck,,,, I should of patented the idea,,,,, Ohh well,, live and learn.
While I myself am not wall mounting my TV, on the website it shows one picture of a wall mounted tv with the bar above the unit, and like three wall mounted tv's with the bar below the unit. Sorry I can't be much more help.

What is a 3-in-1 TV stand?
The ideal listening height is as close to ear level in your seated position as possible.
However, I am fairly certain that you could mount above your TV if it was critical. People always find a way.
Can you forward a picture?
I will attach a picture when I get home from work tonight but it is basically a tv stand with a mounting bracket attached to it.
drfreeman60 this is my setup, this is what i called a 3 in 1 tv stand, I could have either placed the tv on the top shelf of the tv stand, I could have mounted the tv on the wall behind the tv stand, or this stand came with its own mounting unit that attaches to the stand itself. The latter is the route I chose to go with this tv stand. I was just wondering if there is a way to mount the soundbar on top of the tv. I feel like the soundbar will be too low if i put it on one of the shelves of the tv stand.
