Could you mount a speaker on the window with 200 or so of those little suction cup thingies?

Well, "time and money", Murph.

I was trying to avoid hanging a VP180 in the middle of the room from the cathedral ceiling, if you know what I mean.

Mrs. Tuttle is also lukewarm on any stereo installation requiring use of the word "girder".

This is what I have Tom, which sits above the TV. www.amazon.com/OmniMount-CCH1B-Center-Channel-Speaker/sim/B00067AIEU/2

I see they are out of them but you could probably order directly from Omnimount.

Yes, I actually HAVE one of those (which I had sort of forgotten...). My experience with the VP100 was that the sound was pretty significantly improved by putting the speaker BELOW the TV, but I'm willing to give it another try.

I was not comfortable using that device for a VP160/180.

If I wanted to try the VP100 above and the M2 below the screen, how would that be wired? A set of wires ganged at the amp and running to each speaker?

Thank you!

I have 2 pairs of Mains and 2 centers. I use the banana plugs that allow another set of banana plugs to be plugged into them. Such as these. The single ones are best for the receiver, while the double ones are best for speaker. I plug the single ones into the receiver for the lower speakers, then I use the ones made by Monster (because they are short) to plug the upper speakers into the ones already in the back of the receiver.

Tom, should I design a product that will allow a center-channel speaker to mount above a thin TV? grin

Helluva idea, Mark. It's a wonder you didn't think of that like 6 years ago. It probably wouldn't pencil out, though.

It likely would have to have been manufactured in China.

Just glue it to the top of the TV with Liquid Nails. Then when changing it, separate the 2 with a reciprocal saw.

See how easy that is.
