Anybody know anywhere I can get a stand that will hold this thing. I keep looking and all of them seem to small that I see. I hopefully will soon have a projector and I need a speaker stand for it. Thanks!!

I mounted mine to the wall below my screen, using some L-shaped shelf brackets.

Thanks guys, I remember reading that the other day, but I definitely want a stand so I can keep the speakers the same distance across the front of the room. Has anyone been able to find anything that can work other than building their own stand?

It is going to have to be a pretty tall stand to get your center speaker in line with the m60 tweeters, that is why I ended up mounting mine on the wall.

j, they make speaker stands, including center speaker stands, with the top plate smaller than the speaker so there will be nothing on which the sound will reflect. Actually, Even though the top plate is smaller than the speaker, it is strong enough to hold the speaker.

Here is one of the largest top plates I've seen on a center channel (16" x 8"), and it would hold the VP150 just fine. It has 4 small rubber pads on the top plate which help isolate the speaker and hold it on the stand.



You don't say what height stand you are looking for, but the one above comes in 12", 18" and 28" heights, $49 to $59.

Ok, what does puting it in line with the tweeters do for me? I did notice that it sounded better down low instead of ontop of my tv. So if I put it in line with the tweeters even though it will be farther back from the m60's this will be better? I am not a sonic genius that is for sure. Thanks guys!!!

Proper setup for best sound stage, HT experience, and music decoded in 5.1 is to have the tweeters of your left/right mains and center at ear level, or as close as possible. Many times this is not possible due to room/furniture limitations, but for best results this is important. Also, your left/right/center speakers should be the same distance from the primary listening position. This forms a slight arc around the listening position.

What will it do for you? Give you a proper setup, that is if you want that.

yes, to have it set up as best it can be is what I want, but I will have to see how the screen will fit on my wall to see where I could put it. I want to have as big a screen as I can get in my room. I really want to feel like I am at the theater when I get done with it. Thanks. I just want to say thanks to everyone on this forum for all the help I get. I know I ask some questions over and over again and you guys still put up with me. thanks a lot.
