reading the thread below (could be above now I guess) where someone asked about using their main speakers as a center is something I cannot do. I have the old infinity kappa 8.1 vII's that I plan on using when I finish redoing my house in about 2 months. I wanted to use my 2 sets of 8.1's for front/rear & I planned on buying a set of 5.1 vII's to put above & below the TV. Is that a good idea?? My room is only about 13 feet across so by the time I make room for the 73in TV, 2 stereo racks to hold amps/processors/etc & then room for my 8.1's I only have room above & or below the TV. Or should I stand the speakers up on the top of the TV? I will have a shelf there so that could work & I could make a piece to angle those speakers down??

If the speakers were up top that would give me a LOT more room to make my sub enclosure which was going to be under the stereo cabnets & partially under the TV. I was going to leave room for a center channel down there but if I would be better to set the center speakers above the tv I can do that.

any thoughts/suggestions?

Speaker placement is always an issue. Putting the center channel on top is fine. If it sounds ok to you, go for it. Dennis

Up top placement will work but your ideal listening position is narrowed down to a much smaller area as the angle of the centre down towards the listening area is crucial as to how well you hear it.
