Our take on the Center Stage Bracket CSB-1205-BLK by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
A flat-panel TV is great — unless you want to place your center channel speaker above it. That's where the CSB-1205-BLK 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. The top plate of the shelf is fitted with a foam strip on the bottom to protect the finish on your TV, and comes with a non-slip mat to keep the speaker from sliding around.
Easy to install , Speaker stays put no vibration at any volume level . And top of TV is tilted forward.

Center Stage Bracket CSB-1205-BLK Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: Center Stage Brackets were developed to meet the growing demand for brackets that would allow consumers to place center channel speakers and other home theater components on top of flat-panel LCD, LED, and Plasma television displays.
High-Grade Aluminum Construction: The Center Stage Bracket is constructed of high-grade aluminum and uses adjustable steel hardware. It is available in a power coated gloss-black finish. Each bracket is outfitted with a protective foam strip (which protects the television) and comes with a non-slip mat to keep your center speaker securely in place and free from damage or sliding.
Ultra-Slim Design: This Ultra-slim model (Slim CSB 1205 BLK) is designed to accommodate television installations which are quite close to the wall although it will work well in nearly any home theater setup. This model is suited for small and medium-sized speakers which have a maximum depth of 5-inches and weigh up to 15 lbs.
Center Channel Application: The Center Stage Bracket is suited for a wide range of speakers and televisions. The Center Stage Bracket allows speakers to be easily and quickly mounted on top of modern flat-panel televisions whether they are freestanding or wall-mounted. The Center Stage Bracket is aesthetically pleasing and allows the center channel speaker to be placed in an optimal position without damage to the television.
Component Application: The Center Stage Bracket is also very effective at holding various audio/video components on top of flat-panel televisions and computer monitors including Blue-ray players, DVD players, satellite receivers, and cable boxes. In addition, the Center Stage Bracket can be used with Web cams for video conferencing rooms or personal computers.
Installation: The Center Stage Bracket features a low-profile design that is easy to install. It universally mounts on top of most flat-panel televisions that are freestanding or wall-mounted. The Center Stage Bracket features a top plate with a protective foam strip that rests on the top of your flat-panel television, and two adjustable leg supports which clamp to the back of your flat-panel TV for an easy and secure installation. A non-slip mat is provided to place over the top plate to keep your center-channel speaker from sliding.
