Our take on the Sanus BF16B Speaker Stands

by Ralph Graves
Sanus

How about furniture-grade speaker stands that are not only stylish, but can actually help improve your speakers' performance? Sanus' Basic Foundations® stands give you all that in an affordable package!

Basic Foundation stands are made with sturdy MDF (the same material used in many quality speaker cabinets) to resist unwanted resonance. Their twin contoured pillar design offers rock-steady support. Speaker wires run down a groove between the pillars — a snap-in black cover completely conceals the wires from sight, leaving just the clean lines of the stand. The stands come with triangular isolation pads for the top plate, to protect the speaker's finish, and provide additional resonance damping.

Features

Overview: The BF16b speaker stands are constructed of MDF, which offers superior strength and resists unwanted resonance. The twin contoured pillars are aligned in a "V" configuration, offering additional rigidity and providing for the Speaker Cable Management System. A cover snaps into channels on the back of the pillars, hiding the cables from view. The supplied floor spikes further minimize resonance and provide stability on carpeting. The special triangular isolation pads are placed on the top plate for speaker protection and acoustic isolation.

Note: Each stand can support up to 25 pounds.

  • Overall: W=11.273", H=14.5625" (15.579" with spiked feet), D=9.457"

Sanus BF16B Speaker Stands

Written By MARV, North Central Florida on Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased these based on the previous reviews left here at Crutchfield. After I made the order, I looked at them on other websites and almost half of the buyers of this product had trouble with wood splitting while installing the screws. The second largest complaint is the height of the stands. Just use a 1/8" drill bit and drill out the holes at each ends of the supports. Should you have to do this? Well, no but this is a common problem on all put together furniture. As for the height, I do not understand why they are advertised as 16" when they are just a little over 14 1/2". Overall, these are fairly nice stands. They give my Polk Audio Monitor 40's the presence they deserve. As for price, in my opinion this is a $20 kit. Crutchfield shipped them fast.
Pros:
Decent design and sturdy stands.
Cons:
Height, the need to drill out holes and a little overpriced

Speaker Stands

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Product was shipped and received promptly from Crutchfield. It took only a few minutes to assemble the stands. These were advertised as "basic" stands and that is exactly what they are. Base is wide for good stability and finish is good. These stands were fine for my purpose but would not go well where aesthetics were more of a concern
Pros:
Inexpensive, stable, & easy assembly
Cons:
Basic finish, not very attractive looking.

Good stands!

Written By jj, Saint Joseph, LA on Thursday, February 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Nice stands but DO NOT use an electric screwdriver to put these together. It will run the screw down too far and split the wood. I learned the hard way. I think it does say this in the directions somewhere but I didn't realize it until after the damage was done.

Sanus BF16B Speaker Stands

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Crutchfield delivered the goods promptly, they were well packed. The instructions were clear and the assembly pieces were there and actual assembly was straight forward, max 20 minutes for both and only required simple hand tools.. The stands are wood/fiberboard painted black and when put together provide a sturdy 16 inch platform for bookshelf size speakers. Both the bottom and shelf provide enough real estate for proper weight dispersion and minimize vibration. The price is well within reason when compared to other stands. Overall, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Decent speaker stands

Written By MajJaz42, Murfreesboro, TN on Thursday, September 27, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Easy to assemble, stable and nice looking. Didn't have an issue with the wood splitting that the other reviewer mentioned. In my experience, the only oddity worth mentioning is in regards to the holes drilled into the base and support platform that are intended to allow the speaker wire to be routed through them. The holes are pretty small, so if you're using heavy-gauge wire you're probably not going to be able to route the cable through the holes without spending a little time with a wood file to widen the holes. You certainly won't be able to route the cable through the hole if you're using banana plugs (not a big deal if you're using the screw-on type).
Pros:
Easy assembly, nice looking
Cons:
Aside from the speaker wire hole oddity, none

sanus BF16B speaker stands 16"

Written By SteveS, Brooklyn NY on Monday, August 13, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
great value for the price. I did have the wood split during assembly, only on one screw hole ( and in the rear, so its not visable). But overall the speakers sit nice on stands and sound great. My speakers are B&W, isolation is good as sanus provides rubber pads. For the price , you cant beat them and assembly is very easy!
Pros:
easy to assemble, look good, speakers sound good placed on them
Cons:
wood splits in the rear, due to design. I tried drilling the screw holes larger and screw stripped out.

1 question already asked

can these stands hold the squire speakers that we have at church right now we have them on the floor and we want them to be on a stand will these work? [ Hillay  May 07, 2014 ]
1 answer
  • That is going to depend on the size of the speakers. The main things to consider are the width, depth and weight of the speakers. The stands top plate is 7" x 7", and it can support up to 25 pounds. [ Jeff Staff  May 08, 2014 ]
