That's what I did to get my Center Ultra up off the bottom shelf closer to the LR speaker height. The height was set to just raise the bottom of the TV enough to be even with the top of the Center speaker. The distance between the end legs is wide enough to allow the Center to slid back close to the TV and about even with the front edge of the stand.
After I had it assembled I decided to add an angle on the inside edges to somewhat resemble the angle on the Ultra speakers. I used 3/4 oak and black spray paint.
It can be a bit difficult to see with all the black on black. If I wasn't so lazy I'd set up some better lighting for a clearer picture
