Our take on the Center Stage Bracket CSB-3205-BLK

by Dave Bar
Center Stage

If you've got a sound bar speaker, here's a great way to mount it neatly and cleanly on top of your flat-panel TV without drilling holes in your wall. The CSB-3205-BLK speaker shelf attaches directly to the top of your TV, and provides a stable spot for your sound bar. You can free up space on your component rack, or wall-mount your TV and do away with the rack entirely.

This shelf is designed for sound bar 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. The top plate of the shelf is fitted with a foam strip on the bottom to protect the finish on your TV.

Overview: Center Stage Brackets were developed to meet the growing demand for brackets that would allow consumers to place soundbar speakers and center channel speakers on top of flat-panel LCD, LED-LCD, OLED, and Plasma television displays.

High-Grade Aluminum Construction: The CSB-3205 soundbar speaker bracket is constructed of high-grade aluminum and used adjustable steel hardware. It is available in a powder-coated black finish.

Low-Profile Design: This CSB-3205 soundbar speaker bracket features a low-profile design that complement your flat-panel TV and center-channel or soundbar speaker. It measures 32" (w) x 0.75" (h) x 5.0" (d), and can support up to 25 lbs. The CSB-3205 is suited for a wide range of speakers and flat-panel televisions.

Center Channel/Soundbar Application:  This model is suited for slim soundbar and center-channel speakers. It can also be used with smaller home theater systems where the left, center and right speakers can all be placed on top of the television.

Installation: The CSB-3205 allows your soundbar or center-channel speaker to be easily and quickly mounted on top of modern flat-panel televisions that are freestanding. The soundbar speaker bracket is aesthetically pleasing and allows the center-channel or soundbar speaker to be placed in an optimal position without damage to the television. It universally mounts on top of most freestanding flat-panel televisions. The CSB-3205 features a top plate that rests on the top of your flat-panel television, and two adjustable brackets which clamp to the back of your flat-panel TV for an easy and secure installation.

Great product. Couldn't be easier to use. I had no where to put my sound bar with my new TV then I found this bracket and it works perfectly. Well made and unobtrusive.
Lightweight, sturdy and well built.
None that I can see.

Center Stage Bracket Review

Written By JimP, Avon Park, Fl on Sunday, April 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Bracket is verfy well made and does what it is intended to do well
Bracket goes on top of tv. In this case a very thin Samsung 55 inch tv. It has brackets which screw the shelf to the tv which have rubber tips. Makes a good supportive shelf for a center speaker or a sound bar.
absolutely none
