I treat my audio gear with great care and was very reluctant to trust a stand to my large heavy ( almost 30 lb) center channel speaker. Spending a couple hours searching for a stand that gave me some confidence I went with it. The stand is just as I hoped, great quality and solid, I didn't want a cheap looking stand to go with my expensive gear and the looks of the stand compliments my center channel nicely.

I like the look for this center channel speaker stand and it was fairly easy to assemble. I have a huge Def Tech center channel speaker sitting on this stand and it seems very stable since I am using it with carpet spikes on carpet. It is just the right height and it does its job well. I am pleased with this purchase.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

As far as function, it holds my center channel off the ground with out falling over. Fit and finish needs some work. Legs had small dings out of the box, top play assembly holes were drill with a hole .25-.5 inches off. This meant I had to re drill the hole in order to assemble. Untimitly not a bad stand but obviously a straight from China with little quality control.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Nice solid stand . Really reasonable price. Works just as well as those fancy stands that are designed for use with specific speakers. This, enables the buyer to try different kinds of center channels instead of being stuck with a made to measure stand. For movies the angle of the center speaker is more useful to my needs. I use those rubber isolation feet and tilt my center speaker upwards to fire at an angle.

Sanus NFC18 center channel stand

Crutchfield customer from Virginia on 10/8/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Easy to assemble and works as advertised. Only complaint is that the carpet spikes aren't long enough to insert into the base when combined with the isolation feet. Would've been nice as the isolation feet look good in profile and set the stand off the carpet. I ordered an open box item and the metal top plate was missing. Called Crutchfield and got a replacement plate shipped right away. They even offered to send me out a whole new stand! Great customer service.

Pros: A bit expensive but does the job.

Cons: Wire cover is kinda cheap but works.

Nice, simple, heavy stand

BJ from Honolulu, HI on 9/16/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this to hold an Infinity PC351 center channel speaker, which weighs in at a hefty 30 lbs. I searched for something that matched the quality and finish of the speakers and could blend nicely with the aesthetics of my new TV on the wall. This guy does the job. It holds the heavy speaker securely, the carpet tacks hold the stand securely to the floor below, and the cable management hides the wire perfectly. This is a solid piece, heavy metal and wood construction (5 min assembly), no vibration from the speaker, and is high quality. Recommended, but I do wish it was a little cheaper. I would buy again though.

Pros: Solid Support, holds 30+ lbs no problem, steady, no vibration, high quality construction, aesthetically pleasing.

Cons: Tad expensive, but would buy again.

Sanus NFC18 Speaker Stands

EdJ from St.Paul, MN on 3/24/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The NFC18 speaker stands are excellent for my two heavy ie. 20lb.+ front bookshelf speakers. Each stand is very solid with a metal top and a large sturdy wood base. I wanted solid stands that I could use to elevate my front speakers and not worry about them falling off the stands. The NFC18 stands exceeded my expictations.

Good product

Brad C from West Palm Beach on 6/9/2011

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Good product that comes with all the necessary accessories to lock the speaker in place as well as the stand itself. Well thought out with rubber bumpers to angle the speaker up if needed and prevent vibration. The wire hiding option worked great, but was a little bit hard to "install" as the plastic did not want to cup nicely into the slots. Took me an extra 2 mins of struggling, but alas it fell into place. Only complaint from my side is that $100 for this stand is a bit extravagantly priced. Guess I should stop whining and enjoy it... ;-)

Product Research

Features

Compatibility: The Sanus Natural Series NFC18 is an 18" tall stand for center-channel speakers up to 25 lbs. It features a 14.0625" x 8.0625" top plate with adjustable-height brass studs and neoprene pads to provide superior isolation and resonance damping for your center channel speaker.

Note: This product is sold individually.

MDF & Hardwood Construction: The Sanus NFC18 features an anti-resonant MDF base and twin hardwood pillars finished with three coats of hand-sanded black lacquer.

Rubber Feet or Carpet Spikes: The NFC18 includes adjustable carpet spikes and screw-in polyester feet for stability.  The spikes pierce the carpeting and anchor the stand to the floor, keeping the speaker stable and reducing resonance. With the spiked feet installed, the stand height is adjustable from 17.75" to 18". If you do not wish to use the spiked feet, Sanus has included rubber feet that will not scratch your floor.

Wire Management: A patented wire management channel conceals and protects your speaker cables. Plastic wire covers on the back of the two pillars give the speaker stands a neater look by concealing the wires completely.

I used this to mount a similar Polk Central Channel speaker, CSIA6. It looks great and stable.
[ KRISHNASWANY  Feb 16, 2018 ]
A
I do not recommend it since the Polk is a 42.3 lb speaker and the Sanus stand is designed for no more than 25 lb.
[ Joseph C  Feb 16, 2018 ]
A
I have that exact center channel and had no issues.
[ David  Feb 15, 2018 ]
A
I believe it can. It is a very sturdy and stable stand for center channel speaker.
[ Kirit  Feb 15, 2018 ]
A
My guess is yes. I have a B&W CM2 Center that weighs about 42lbs and it fits nicely. I think the Polk is about the same weight.

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: One will not work, but if you get two of them, then they could support your center channel speaker. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.

Q
Would this hold a 40 lb. B&W center?
[ Greg  Feb 03, 2018 ]
5 answers
A
Yes, very easily.
[ Doc  Feb 05, 2018 ]
A
It shouldn't be a problem. My center is a B&W HTM7 which weights 28 lbs. The Sanus is quite sturdy.
[ JOHN F.  Feb 03, 2018 ]
A
If the center speaker is long and/or wide then I would use both stands. I don't think the weight would matter but vibrations may cause a stability issue if the speaker hangs too far over the edges of one stand. If the speaker does not hang over by more than a couple of inches then one stand will hold the weight.
[ Mark  Feb 03, 2018 ]

Hi Greg P. I have a PSB center channel speaker 22x14x10 that weighs 43lbs. My Sanus NFC18 is very stable and on thin carpet without spikes. Because of the dimensions of my speaker and being piano gloss black color I did add a sheet of rubberized foam for a barrier but that was only because my speaker is large and the feet/pads on the bottom don't sit on the top plate of the stand.
[ Brian  Feb 03, 2018 ]
A
I don't know the dimensions of your center channel, but this stand would have no issues supporting 40 pounds.
[ Matthew  Feb 03, 2018 ]
