Post a pic, if you get the opportunity.
I'm at work, so I can't post a picture now, but I can describe it:
Basically I have an old-school entertainment center (two giant towers on either side of the TV, bridge connecting the two at the top). I don't have room to place the C1 on the unit that the TV is sitting on, so I have it sitting on top of the bridge (roughly two feet above the TV, as I mentioned). I have it somewhat angled down towards the listening area, but probably not nearly enough.
I looked at it last night, and I think what I'll do is build a shelf between the two towers that would be directly above the TV. I think that would be low enough that I could successfully angle it properly. Since I won't be able to match the stain, it might look like crap, but that center channel placement has bothered me for a long time. Hopefully this will be a noticeable improvement.
