This might be a dumb question but is it ok to place your TV on the center channel itself? The VP180 is 17" and that is deep enough for my TV's base to rest on.

Nevermind, I see now that the back of the cabinet tapers. So...how do most people place their center channel? Is it advisable to use the mount that is sold by axion?

I have mine on my TV stand with the TV wall mounted. You can either do that or use their stands http://www.axiomaudio.com/fms180.html .
The VP180 is too heavy to be wall mounted.

Hi,

To wall mount it you need to build a deep sturdy shelf. I have one of my VP180 hanging down from the ceiling above my front projection screen.

WOW, I'd like to see a pic of that! Did you use chains?

JC,

How elevated is your center channel? If it is above your projector screen, it must be pretty high. Any trouble angling it down to your listening area?
