Default vertical center channel

I own a polk CSi5 Center channel speaker and it's currently horizontally mounted above my TV. I notice inconsistecy in dialogue sometimes. I read this sticky post and became interested.

I am currently considering building a new TV stand/cabinet and and debating whether or not to accomodate a section in the middle of the stand/cabinet to house my CSi5 to stand vertically? My concern is that the center-speaker might be to low to the ground. There won't be any obstructions between the speaker and the listener, however the tweeter of the vertical-standing center channel will be approximately 16 inches above the floor (once the stand/cabinet gets built) versus 46 inches vertical height of the floorstanding L/R speakers.

Is this recommended?
Pannasonic BD65/Yamaha RX-A700/Viera 50PZ85U
POLK RTi12 (Bi-amp), CSi5, 2-pair FXi4
Definitive Techonology Supercube Reference (LFE)
DIY Sub with Dayton Audio Reference 15" HO driver
External amps, Gemini XGA3000, Behringer EP4000.

MSI A75MA mobo, AMD Hudson D3 chipset
Radeon RD 260x 2GB GDDR5/16 GB RAM/AMD Quad Core A8
