I have a 5.1 speaker setup but I would like to replace the brick style center speaker for of a more sound bar style to sit in front of the tv. There is 70 - 75 mm of height that I have to play with.
Does such a thing exist that anybody knows of ??.

Polk do one... But it will replace your left and right channel speakers too.

Yeah I have seen a couple that do that , don't want to drop current L/R channel speakers just the center. Does not appear to be anything around that fits a single channel speaker in the style I am after.

Since I could not find anything that suited what I wanted (at the moment), I thought I would try my D.I.Y skills to re-locate the center speaker..
My D.I.Y skills suck big time and I really mean that , if I had to build something with a 90 deg angle it would be 100 deg or 80 deg.

Anyway our media entertainment center which was a Criterion (build quality is utter crap) , had a draw at the top that was supposed to hold dvd's etc however the bottom of it collapsed a couple of years ago and the front of the draw was just that a front.

This was my attempt at relocating the center speaker.

It actually works pretty well until such time as I can 1. Buy a center speaker I like. 2. Buy a new entertainment cabinet.

That looks pretty good.

How about building a entertainment cabinet?

I'm useless at DIY, but there's only one way at getting better, practice makes perfect.

Thanks for that.

I need a better garage (workshop) to muck around properly.
