Center Stage Bracket CSB-505-BLK
Satellite speaker shelf for flat-panel TVs

Our take on the Center Stage Bracket CSB-505-BLK by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Having trouble finding a spot near your flat-panel TV where you can place a compact speaker? The CSB-505-BLK easily attaches to the top of your TV and gives you a stable place for a single satellite speaker. It's a great solution for apartments and other rooms where drilling mounting holes into your wall isn't an option.
This compact shelf is designed for a small- to medium-sized satellite speaker with a maximum depth of 5". A thick rubber cap at the end of the leg tightens 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.
I had no room for my Polk MagniFi Mini on the dresser in the bedroom. The bracket was perfect for my mounting situation, and I loved the fact that you can adjust the speaker angle. Sturdy with solid craftsmanship.

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 center channel speakers 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.
Low-Profile Design: This low-profile model (CSB-0505-BLK-Satellite) is designed to accommodate television which are wall-mounted or table-top mounted, and will work well in nearly any home theater setup. This model is suited for small-sized speakers which have a maximum depth of 5-inches and weigh up to 5 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.
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 an adjustable leg support which clamps 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.
Note: The Center Stage Bracket will not work with super-slim LED-LCD and OLED TVs.

Why did you buy this?
Use it for my Bose center speaker [ KAMALANAND Dec 11, 2016 ]
To mount my blue-ray player above my TV. [ Bis Nov 17, 2016 ]
Solves my problem of where to place my center channel speaker [ Brian Oct 01, 2016 ]
I bought a new flat screen tv. [ james Jul 09, 2016 ]
For use with my Xbox Kinect. [ Rich May 22, 2016 ]
It's perfect for what I need to do. Buying two at 24.99 made more sense than buying a pair for $65.99. Bryce agreed. He concurred that two provided exactly the same as the higher price pair.You need to check your pricing on the pair (CSB-1005-ADJ). Bryce's Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=75 [ William May 15, 2016 ]
Functional top mount stand for a smaller HT setup with small center channel speaker. Will fit my application perfectly and get the speaker up to ear level since my HDTV is a smaller format. Plus the installation with look cleaner than having the speaker sitting on the stand in front of the TV.... [ FRANCIS E Apr 15, 2016 ]
To hold my sound bar about the tv [ Kevin Lowry Feb 09, 2016 ]
Looks like a good solution vs going into the wall. New TV is too low to the console to place in front of the TV. Hope it works! [ Ronald Feb 06, 2016 ]
Simple to use and does the job. [ Arturo E. Jan 08, 2016 ]

I have the polk center channel TL1. It hold its but it over hangs on both sides. [ BARBARA Feb 20, 2015 ]
I used two of these to mount my 42 inch Vizio 2.1 Channel Soundbar (S4221) to the top of a Samsung TV. The Vizio weighs 8.4 lbs. and it is easily held up by two of these. I don't know which Polk you are looking at, but they seem less wide but weigh more. I think you would still be OK if you used two of the brackets. [ Russ Feb 20, 2015 ]
I would need to have more information about the Polk audio center channel speaker, size and weight. I do have a center speaker from my Onkyo system on mine and it works great but there are many choices that you have available depending on size. Take a look at these: http://www.crutchfield.com/shopsearch/Center_Stage_Bracket.html , you might want to consider the two shelf package for $29.95. [ Andrew Feb 20, 2015 ]
It will work fine for a small to medium size center channel speaker. [ KEVIN Feb 20, 2015 ]
