One of my options is to put the 65" TV directly on top of the 210C. A few questions:
1) Is that feasible? TV is will be 57 lbs.
2) Should the CC be above or below? I can't get the 210C's horn at ear height. Below is closer to ear height but then the TV is raised another 11" and far away from eye level. Which is the better compromise?
Like Hop stated, the 210c will easily support your TV, and yes, it's built like a tank. But if you have a little more than 11" above the
TV, I would mount it there and aim it down towards the listening area. If you want to be exacting about it you can use a laser pointer
($20 at radio shack). Just make sure the center is flush with the edges of your cabinet so there won't be any sound reflections.
You can aim it using a door stop(s) or rubber feet at the back of the speaker.
My center (MT210c) is below the TV, but is sitting on an entertainment cabinet...with the TV mounted to the wall. I would put it above
but there is no room because my TV is huge, and there is a beam above it so there is no room to place it there. So in my case I have to
aim it up about 1" up from the bottom of the cabinet. When I had a smaller TV I had the center above,and for some reason it just had a nicer sound. But below or above will work, either way.
Many times people sit on recliners when watching TV, so if is the case for you then moving the TV up would be OK if you are in the reclined position.
