Need to Raise TV height (Center speaker Blocks TV)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Dear AV Gurus,

 

Can you suggest some good ideas/product that I can use to raise the TV height on stand. I already have TV table and I just finished setup my home theatre.

 

The center speaker blocks about 3 inches of my TV. I can't wall mount TV so need something that can raise the height on stand

 

Attached is the picture. 

 

 

 

 

Thanks.

Build (or buy) a riser for your TV: something like this

Recently I was perusing the 'bay looking for the stand for my 141FD, and came across this rather amusing contraption...
http://www.ebay.com/itm/LCD-LED-Plasma-Universal-TV-Stand-Pedestal-Base-37-55-Panasonic-SONY-Toshiba-/360743840211?pt=US_TV_Mounts_Brackets&hash=item53fe0229d3

Now mind you, I am NOT endorsing THAT particular one for any reason and I ended up finding a PDK-1015 for my TV, but the idea seems sound if the unit is built well enough not to topple over. Otherwise I can't think of any alternative other than some type of small platform to fit under the base.

Cheapest way is just to build one. I made one for under 30.00 by buying a 1/4 sheet of 3/4" finished plywood and four "sofa leg" blocks from Lowes
Got Lowes to cut a piece 24" X 14" and then just sprayed it with a few coats of black gloss.

Have you guys seen these speaker shelf's that mount to your TV that Crutchfield sells ?



My question is would it be better for your center speaker to be above the TV or below it ? I'm trying to decide whether to raise my TV up or mount the center about it with a shelf like this one.

Makes no difference if it above, or below, as long as you tilit it towards the listening area.
I have those very same shelves for my left, center and right speakers, and they work great. They were my only solution for a difficult family room, ....due to layout, there was no room for floorstanding speakers, and the wife didn't want me raising the tv higher than it was.
