A flat-panel TV is great — unless you want to place your center channel speaker above it. That's where the CSB-1205 Pro comes in. This ultra-slim bracket easily attaches to the top of your flat-panel TV and acts as a shelf for a center channel speaker or other slim component. So you can have the speaker above the TV where you want it, giving you the best sound without having to drill mounting holes in your wall.

This ultra-slim shelf is designed for small- and medium-sized center channel speakers with a maximum depth of 5". Thick rubber caps at the end of the legs tighten against your TV to keep the shelf securely in place. You can also adjust the mounting screws to angle the speaker down towards your listening position for better sonic performance. Four self-adhesive rubber pads that mount to the lip of the shelf are included to protect the finish on your TV.

Product Highlights:

  • mounts directly to most free-standing or wall-mounted TVs
  • not compatible with ultra-slim OLED and LCD TVs like Sony's XBR-X900C models
  • holds a speaker or other component up to 5" deep and weighing up to 15 lbs.
  • support legs with rubber caps keep shelf in place
  • self-adhesive rubber pads protect TV finish
  • durable aluminum construction
  • black anodized finish
  • shelf measures 12"W x 5"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

center stage

Written By mike, Texas on Saturday, August 29, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

First of all I would like to thank the customer rep for his outstanding care. Received wrong item and within a short time the right item was shipped. Wish all customer care was as efficient as Crutchfield has been. Thanks again. The center stage was exactly was i was looking for to mount my Polk Audio center speaker on. Easy installation and sturdy. Thanks Crutchfield.

Pros: Easy installation

Cons: none

Excellent for my Onkyo center speaker!

Written By Dan R., Maryland on Friday, June 05, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Extremely simple to put together, sturdy, & holds weight fine. It is made with a truly universal design, since it doesn't screw into the back of the TV. It's own weight keeps it in place. My Onkyo center speaker is roughly 5-7 pounds, about 14-15 inches wide and the shelf supports it very well, even though the shelf is slightly smaller than the speaker. The back, left & right sides of the speaker hang over the edge of the shelf by an inch or so, but I actually like this, because it gives the illusion that the speaker is floating behind/above the tv. You can also adjust the tilt of the shelf with the wingnuts to angle the center speaker downward, which I did at about a -15 degree angle. My 50 inch Panasonic plasma tv has a half inch black frame and my speakers are black with silver trim and this blends in with them nicely. There's also no branding on the device at all (which I like) so it looks like it came with the tv/speaker. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who can't decide where to put their center speaker.

Pros: Easiest install Ever. Requires no tools. Performs as described. Fits virtually any flat screen tv that is less than 6" in depth. Sleek look & light-weight design. Sturdy once installed.

Cons: For me, none, but if you have a TV with an "edgeless" screen, the shelf might hang over the top of the screen by about a quarter inch. Also if you have a very large center speaker (bigger than 18'' x 8'' x 8''), it may not be as stable on the shelf.

Great product, great service

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this to fit in a 5" space behind my TV. I had some trouble setting it up at first because the back of my TV is angled longer than average. I reached out to center stage customer service and got quick and helpful responses.

I have to admit that I still feel a little weary of having the speaker up there and angled down, but the weight of the speaker combined with the provided rubber feet does seem to keep it secure.

Center Speaker Mount

Written By Ray B, Westchester, California on Sunday, May 17, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Exactly what we needed for a new wall mounted TV. Wall is tile so the only holes I wanted to add were the required ones for the TV mount. This stand solved the problem for the center speaker.

Pros: Very easy to install.

Cons: Would like a non-slide surface for the speaker to sit on. TV cannot be pushed flat against the wall with the stand installed.

Center speaker shelf: simple and affordable

Written By Dan R, Renton, WA on Wednesday, May 13, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Center speaker shelf has worked out great. Super easy to set up and it accommodates the modest center speaker in our smallish living room. It made a big difference in the home theater set-up's mid- and high-range sound. (Lots of sound absorbing furniture so we really needed this shelf for a long, long time.)

Pros: Small footprint and easy adjustments with nothing more than what you need. You'll place and forget it until it's time to dust that much-higher center speaker again.

Cons: No cons really.

Great Option

Written By Mcdaygo, California on Monday, March 02, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Pretty self explanatory if you're in the market for one of these, this does a great job of securing itself to my television set. I do have a pretty new Samsung UHD set and the Center Stages front "lip" for lack of a better term is a hair larger than the screens bezel. I didn't see that measurement listed before I purchased this but it's barely noticeable from my usual TV seating perspective.

Pros: Secure, well made, and does its job as intended.

Cons: May not be ideal for newer or thin bezel sets.

Excellent shelf for center speaker

I needed a place optimally set center speaker, this shelf provided a perfect location and my center speaker now sounds great.

Support Screws Not Long Enough

Written By Curt Y, St. Michaels,MD on Wednesday, December 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The construction of this shelf is very sturdy but with the new, thin TV screens, it is a little out of touch with the need for longer support screws. I just purchased a new LG OLED TV and the screen is so thin that the support screws are not long enough to level the shelf. The center speaker has a leveling adjustment screw which can somewhat compensate for this problem but it would be better if the shelf screws were probably an inch longer.

Pros: Construction of the shelf

Cons: Screws nit long enough

Affordable Sturdy Shelf

Written By garyw, ocala,fl on Thursday, October 23, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was skeptical in purchasing this product due to its small size, but I have no regrets after installing it. It took less than 5 minutes to setup and even though I do not have a completely flat back on my tv, this shelf still supports my 15 lbs center speaker. My home theater needs were met after purchasing stands and this speaker shelf.

Pros: Secure even on non flat panels Easy installation No tools needed Saves space

Cons: Must have a flat panel TV, but doable without it

Great Product!

Works perfectly on my new Vizio M-Series 60" TV. Easily adjustable, and big enough for a range of center channel speakers.

Pros: Quick Setup. Easy adjustment. Quality construction. Perfect size.

Cons: N/A
