Add Metal Plating to Support a Center Speaker

Most home theater television sets have a large center speaker sitting on top of them. This is generally the ideal placement, but over time, a heavy speaker will warp your TV set. A simple piece of metal on top can solve this problem.

The bigger the speaker, the better, right? Well, that’s not always true [Hack #37] , but it often is. However, these big speakers also are heavy speakers, and over time they’ll create an ugly indentation in your TV set. Although that might be a great excuse to buy a new set, it’s too easy of a problem to correct to let lie. Besides, you can’t resell a TV with a warped screen!

To solve this problem, locate (or buy at your local sheet metal shop) a good size sheet of either 1/2- or 3/8-inch aluminum. Cut this down to the size of your television top, minus about 2 inches.
