    I have a new house. TV mounted over the fireplace (wife mandated). I have a mount that pulls the TV out and down over the fireplace so it's not so high. BUT, what do I do about my center channel? I have a Polk CS10.

    Other speakers are:
    R/L: Boston Acoustics CR-8
    Rear: Polk bookshelves
    Sub: Klipsch 10"

    Depending on your viewing distance from the TV, you could mount a speaker above the TV(angled down).
    Or set your receiver/processor to use a Phantom center channel.
    Or if you aren't using the fireplace(mine is just for looks), place a speaker in front of the hearth.
