Our take on the Center Stage Bracket CSB-3205 by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
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 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.
This bracket solved the 'where to put the soundbar dilemma'. Positions the sound perfectly, and does not take up any usable space. Quality construction and easy install.

Center Stage Bracket CSB-3205 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Center Stage Bracket: 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.
Note: The Center Stage Bracket will not work with super-slim LED-LCD and OLED TVs.

not able to mount to wall [ neal Apr 27, 2016 ]
Hopefully this is what I am looking for to mount my speaker. I would like to thank Aaron for his assistance - he was very patient with someone who has little knowledge about these things. Answered all my questions about the product. Aaron's Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=152 [ Melinda Mar 28, 2016 ]

The details on the mythos 10 shows it weighs 21 pounds. The bracket says it supports 15 pounds. It may be too heavy for the top of the television and make it top heavy. I have a Samsung 55 inch ultra high def and this speaker seemed to make it top heavy so I had to wall mount it [ Jim Apr 26, 2015 ]
