Our take on the Center Stage Bracket CSB-1409

by Dave Bar
Center Stage

Mount a your center channel speaker above your flat-panel TV the easy way with the CSB-1409. This large shelf attaches to the top of your flat-panel TV, so you can place a center channel speaker above it without having to drill mounting holes into your wall. It's also great for getting your components, like a DVD player or satellite box, up off your component rack when you need the space.

This shelf is designed for center channel speakers with a maximum depth of 10" and weighing up to 15 lbs. 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  to are included to protect the finish on your TV.

Does the job

Written By JB, Tuscaloosa, AL on Thursday, October 09, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I ordered this product because my new center channel speaker was too big for the place designated for it in my entertainment center. I was initially concerned that this bracket might damage my TV, but now after having my 17 pound speaker sitting on it for over a week, there are no issues. This stand is very sturdy and the speaker isn't going anywhere. This is a well made product, slightly pricey, but overall I am satisfied.

Works as expected

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Solidly constructed, functionally precise. It's a pretty simple design, so it works just like you'd expect. I was impressed with the stability of the platform after "installing", which only takes a minute. I suspect most will use this as a shelf for a center channel speaker but I'm using it to support a TV antenna and Wii remote sensor. The shelf remains stable and in place even when twisting the rabbit ears around. Visually, you hardly see it. Bottom line, it works!
Solidly built, allows for minute adjustments. Very stable.
Not exactly cheap for what it is. The price is the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars

Hi, Does the front over hang block any of the picture? [ Richard  Aug 20, 2014 ]

  • It does not block the picture. It comes down about 3/8th of an inch. the thing you do need to know is that I had to retap the screw holes and get bigger bolts. the ones that come with the unit are too short for standard lcd tv's. In order for the ones that come with the bracket to work the tv would have to be at least 3 to 4 inches thick so they can touch the back of the tv. Once I fixed that issue and used new longer bolts it worked flawlessly. [ Sal   Aug 22, 2014 ]
  • The overhang is minimal so it won't block any of the picture. [ Patrick   Aug 22, 2014 ]
  • It does not, provided that you have a little bit of frame around your TV screen. [ Serge   Aug 22, 2014 ]
  • No, none at all. Though my TV has a 2-inch plastic border framing the screen itself. [ John   Aug 22, 2014 ]
  • It is about 1/4 inch and does not block anything on my tv. [ Robert   Aug 22, 2014 ]
  • No it does not, unless your screen goes all the way to the edge [ Henry   Aug 22, 2014 ]
  • Not at all. It fit perfectly, and I'm very happy with it. [ Mary   Aug 22, 2014 ]
  • Not at all, but then again I guess that would depend on one's television set. My Sony 32" has enough of a boarder if you will at the top so the bracket//shelf doesn't even come close to impeding the picture. Hope this helps. [ David   Aug 22, 2014 ]
  • It does not cover any of the screen. It extends down less than 1/2 inch from the top edge of the frame. I've never seen a tv with a frame thin enough to even be close to being a problem. Cheers. [ JOEL   Aug 22, 2014 ]
