Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The key to speaker stands is they must be rigid and non-resonant. I expect metal stands to resonate and thus require dampening. Since the top plate is metal an attachment mechanism is required. As expected, the stands are Very rigid, but quite resonant. Easily remedied with 25 pounds of #8 lead shot in each stand. Found that on line and it fills the column to within about 1/2 inch of the top. Dry sand would also work, but might be more prone to leaking from the cable mount and bottom plate. The stands correctly position Spica TC-50s : Base 13w x 11.6d. Weight 20lbs. The large plate works quite well. Speakers are attached to top plate with 4 Isolate-IT 2.25" sorbothane pads essentially making the stand and speaker a single cohesive unit. Imaging is rock solid and there are no resonances or colorations.
Pros: Simple to assemble. Very Rigid. Expect to fill Any metal stand. These are simple to fill with Dry sand or lead shot.
Cons: - none -
