Is it safe to put a center channel speaker on top of a TV? I have a Sony Rear Projection?

As long as the center channel is shielded, you will be fine. If it is not shielded, it will ruin the tv.

Being that it is a projection TV, I don't think if it is shielded or not really matters. The magnetic field will mess up a CRT TV, but not a projection. All the internals of a projection TV are in the base, and there is a large mirror that reflects the picture onto the screen.

I also think you will have a hard time finding an unshielded center channel speaker. All the ones I have seen are shielded...
