There were 12, Bob. One was just out of the frame.

And, you guys know I'm not from Boston, right? Wasn't born anywhere near here; don't have that accent... smile

The articulating wall mount isn't going to work. I checked the height yesterday night and there isn't enough space to make it happen.

I haven't been successful in finding any quality VESA mounts that will screw into the back of the TV either, but I'm still looking. Hopefully I will find something.

Not sure if this will help, but when I had to place my VP150 below the tv, I turned it upside down from previous installation (flipped the front grill to look right side up) and this angle up seems to be working fine. Just a thought and not sure if that is how you installed it or if you just moved it from above to below as it was.

I like the idea of using a little stand to raise the TV up a bit and then place the speaker on the top of the TV stand.

I just saw your comment and the Axiom Center Speaker Placement video.

I think this will work for me, but I have one question. After flipping the speaker, the women in the video says the tweeter will be upside down. She then proceeds to remove the tweeter, turn it over and reinstall. Is this necessary?

No, the tweeter flipping is purely cosmetic for the Axiom logo to be right side up should you want to remove the grill. Axiom confirmed this in another thread which I am too lazy to link to right now.

Perfect, thanks. I'll flip the VP150 upside down tonight and see if it sounds any better.
