Default I'm in a bit of a pickle regarding center channel placement

Hi Big Daddy,

My center speaker mounted vertically will not be an option for me

I planned on mounting the center on a pedestal/riser and using rubber feet to angle the tweeter to ear level. That's the best I can do with my room constraints.

I could put the tv on top of the center, but then I would need to look up just to see the video.

Any suggestions fellas?
( the flat panel weighs 90lbs and cannot be mounted on the wall behind my rig. )
