Hello all, I need to lift my center channel about 6 inches off the cabinet. Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thanks

Custom made/bent acrylic shelf? You can do this on your own.

Pat, I took an old 4x4" wood post I had in the garage, cut three pieces to the desired length, painted to match the interior of the cabinet area and used them for the glass shelf supports that our 180 is sitting on. I had to use the flash on the camera to get them to show up in the first pic but otherwise they completely disappear within the cabinet area.

These 4x4" supports are 7" high.






Dang I need to do some dusting.

Pat, whatever the effect you're aiming for is, try it out with a couple stacks of old magazines or similar.

Unfortunately, it was in-use as a support at the time. But that VP180 shore looks purdy!
