Overview

Our take on the Sanus SF30 Speaker Stands

If you're serious about sound, but aren't willing to compromise on style, Sanus Steel Foundation® speaker stands were made for you! Combining form and function, the stands have contoured 10-gauge steel base plates. Two 2" diameter pillars solidly support a steel top plate. Both pillars and top plate feature a handsome black powder-coated finish.

If you're serious about sound, but aren't willing to compromise on style, Sanus Steel Foundation® speaker stands were made for you! Combining form and function, the stands have contoured 10-gauge steel base plates. Two 2" diameter pillars solidly support a steel top plate. Both pillars and top plate feature a handsome black powder-coated finish.

But these stands do more than just look good. The base plate's stable platform decreases energy loss from your speaker, giving you better performance. The pillars minimize diffraction, and can be filled with shot or sand for added mass, and a resonance-damping ring placed between the top plate and the pillars further improves the speaker's sound.

The top plates are equipped with adjustable speaker isolation studs and neoprene isolation pads to further dampen unwanted vibrations. The stands come with the Sanus Foundation Mount® system, so you can easily secure bolt-style speakers to the top plate.

None Better in This Price Range

James from Las Vegas, NV on 10/13/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have assembled numerous stands over the years, and these are one of the best. I think most audiophiles would agree that these stands have all of the qualities that are conducive to optimal speaker performance. I especially like the fact that these stands are heavy and the bases are wide, all of which help with safety. My only complaint is that the parts were so heavy that they tended to break through its box during shipment, but thankfully, Crutchfield made it right with me.

Pros:

Cons:

Not the right stands

Jerome from Cocoa Beach, FL on 10/1/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are decent stands but really are not the right stands for my SVS Prime Satellite System. The stands require attachment at the speaker bottom but the SVS Prime Satellite System speakers must be attached at the back. I'm surprised and disappointed that these stands were recommended to me. I would send them back but it is too much hassle to disassemble, repackage, etc.

Pros:

Cons: Requires speakers attach with screws at the bottom of the speakers

Great, sturdy stands

Crutchfield customer from Seward, AK on 9/2/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Solid and easy set up. Use as stands for rear speakers in surround.

Pros:

Cons:

Solid construction, heavy, easy to assemble

David from Bellingham, WA on 8/21/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I decided on the SF30 over the NF30 so that my bookshelf speakers would have a heavier base on which to sit. I feel more confident that small bumps will not send these stands toppling over. I like the steel material better, too, and feel that I can easily touch up any wear and tear down the line should I scratch them during, say, an apartment move.

Pros: Solid construction, easy assembly, able to touch up wear and tear

Cons: Heavy (but this is also a pro for me)

Crutchfield customer from Columbia, SC on 8/13/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are well built and look good. You really have to pay attention to the instructions especially to the markings on the feet placement.

Pros: Sruedy. Good looks. Holds my definitive technology SM-55 easily

Cons: Instructions vague. Don't know how you could fill with aand

Best buy.

Daniel from Sacramento, CA on 8/5/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are well built. Substantial in weight, and very sturdy. Sand will not be needed in my room. Much better than wood.

Cons: None.

Pros: Sturdy Well balanced

Cons: Instructions

Well made stands

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Bought two pairs for my surrounds and my left and right fronts made well. Putting my new Elac uni-Fi UB5 on them. Setting up new surround system in my bedroom.

Pros: Look good made good.

Cons: None

Sturdy and stylish.

Rowdy from Cut Off, LA on 5/31/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These were purchased to hold a couple of 16 lb bookshelf speakers and they are doing it well. Nice height for this purpose and they are sturdy being bolted together metal.

Pros: Bolted together metal is strong and sturdy, good looking, and I expect to be long lasting.

Cons: As usual, the assembly instructions could be clearer and I couldn't figure out how to fill the tubes with sand or anything else as advertised although I don't feel it is necessary.

Nick A from Kirkland, WA on 10/17/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to assemble, no missing parts, stable and have enough area for my speakers. Love the adjustable brass isolation spikes for the top plate. However, I wish they were easier to fill with sand, which is otherwise a great and inexpensive improvement.

Pros:

Cons:

Fullfills all my expectations: Sanus SF30 Speaker Stands

Eldon from Concord, CA on 10/1/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

After discarding a cheaper particle board Sanus stand that split as it was being assembled, I ordered these metal stands. Don't try to save yourself a few bucks. These not only look far better but dampen the resonance of your speakers which will give a much better sound.

Pros:

Cons:

Solid! Very nice for the money!

John D from Little Rock, AR on 9/10/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These are very solid and nice speaker stands for the money. I replaced some very cheap pressboard stands with these and they are so much sturdier. I have read where others had trouble getting the feet connected. I followed the instructions and didn't have any trouble. There are two shapes of feet included that are just slightly different. If you try to put the wrong type on the wrong corner, it wont' fit. They are marked "1" and "2" down inside the feet. Just follow the directions and you shouldn't have any trouble. I was impressed at all of the attachments included to help with vibration damping and even with the wire guides. These are not bargain basement stands, but are very nicely made and not that expensive.

Pros: Solid Vibration Damping Look nice

Cons: Takes a little bit to assemble. I don't know how they could make it any simpler though and still provide such a stable and solid product.

Great Speaker Stands

Eric from La. on 7/22/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to assemble using either Crutchfield or Sanus Support Team eager to help with any questions!! They come with rubber feet that you can attach (upon your own discretion, for carpeted surface's etc.) carpet spikes. They also come with two Allen wrenches and all you have to provide for set up is a Phillips screwdriver. You can fill the center tubes with sand/dirt/ to make them heavier and more stable. I did not do this mainly b/c I do not have Large Dogs jumping all around and knocking things over!! I also feel as though they are very sturdy by themselves with their wide bowed base and now that I have had them for a while I see that the only way that they would fall over would be by purpose or by a bad mishap that would need a greater than normal amt of force. If your speakers mount from the bottom; you can mount them to the top plate, if not, slip resistant rubber cushions are available.

Pros: I like the Height to where my tweeters are at ear level and no matter how loud I play my speakers there is no vibration/noise coming from the stand!! I also appreciate the durability of the product!!

Cons: none

Sanus SF30 Speaker Stands

TJ from Phoenix on 5/28/2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks are good and the stands are solid and support well. I had no manufacturing problems and the directions were just suggestions at best. However, being a guy who needs directions!!! Thankfully I'm in a mechanical career and not tool challenged. The one thing that I suggest is to drill a hole in the base plate so you can run the wiring up thru the middle to hide the wiring. Other than that, glad I purchased.

Pros: Looks, solid, and support.

Cons: Need to be able to run the wiring differently than designed, simple fix for me, but not a simple task for some others.

Sanus SF30 Black Steel Speaker Stands

perritterd from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla on 11/14/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These stands look exquisite and are very functional. My speakers look fabulous on them. I see people reviewing them saying that they had to drill out the bases for the feet to fit. If they just aligned them properly with the numbered feet (1 or 2), they would fit and you do not need to drill out anything! I filled mine with sand and installed the spikes for the floor mounts and am very please with them. The stands came out of Va. and only took 2 days for delivery to my door in Ft. Lauderdale after placing my order with Crutchfield. The box was damaged upon arrival but not the stands, fortunately. The 30" stands are a perfect height for sitting and listening to music-ear level with the tweeter.

Cons:

Solid Attractive Stand Poor Manufacturing

Gary from Saint Louis on 4/3/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These stands are very solid and they look good. I did however have to drill out the mounting holes on 6 of the 8 feet in order to make them line up with the holes in the base. They definitely have a quality control problem. The average person would have had to send the feet back for replacements. A handy person or do it yourself type person with a drill and drill bits can basically re-align the hole in the feet to make them fit.

Alejandro from Byron Center MI on 11/23/2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

These speaker stands are pretty sharp looking and have really good stability. Crutchfield delivery was exceptionaly fast. This is my second pair I have bought.This time around I had a slight problem. One of the feet (#2) was defective. It just would not fit. I called Sanus, they said they would ship one out to me,It should get to me in one week. I think Sanus is a good product,but they should tighten up their QA. The last review also had a bum part. It takes away from the excitement of getting something new. Crutchfield keep up the good work and an eye on Sanus.

Deborah from Fuquay-Varina, NC on 10/4/2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Once assembled, these stands look great and I am happy with them. Delivery from Crutchfield was fast, as always. Assembly was the challenge. The assembly instructions were vague and the pictures did not match the step they are associated with; although after I had them assembled I could look back at the pictures and realize what they were showing! It's a good thing I am mechanically inclined, otherwise I might have had to call Sanus for assistance with assembly, not that it was difficult to do, just that the instructions were almost impossible to comprehend. In addition, one of the rubber feet was deformed and would not fit on the stand. I called the Sanus support line and was pleasantly surprised at the high level of customer service I encountered. I explained the issue and the service rep asked me to email them at a particular email address, give them the part description and my mailing address, and they would send me a replacement part. I did so, and was amazed when the part was sent out to me the following day, no charge and no questions asked! I would rate these stands a 5, except for the bad part and the bad assembly instructions. They do look great in my room, match my decor, and support my bookshelf speakers just fine.

Features

Compatibility: The Sanus Steel Series SF30 is a 30" stand for small-to-medium bookshelf speakers up to 25 lbs. The 6" (w) x 6.5" (d) top plate offers adjustable brass studs and neoprene pads for speaker alignment. Some speakers have a threaded insert in the bottom of the cabinet to accommodate bolt-mounting. These stands have a hole in the center of the top base and include a 5/8" bolt for securely attaching these bolt-mounted speakers to the stands.

Steel Construction: The Sanus Steel Series SF30 features heavy-duty 10-gauge steel construction. The extra-large steel base provides superior stability on practically any surface. The twin heavy-gauge steel pillars can be filled with sand or shot for added mass.

Resonance Damping Rings: The top plates and pillars are separated by self-adhesive cork resonance damping rings. These rings eliminate speaker resonance from passing through the stands causing distortion.

Wire Management: The steel pillars feature a concealed wire path to hide your speaker wire for a clean and neat installation.

Rubber Pads or Spikes: The stands feature plastic feet and have threaded inserts on the bottom that allow you to use the included isolation spikes or rubber feet. The isolation spikes are adjustable and designed for carpeted floors. The rubber pads are safe for hardwood, tile, laminate, and vinyl flooring. The spikes add 1" to the overall height of the speaker stands. The rubber pads add 0.25" to the overall height of the speaker stands.

Note: The isolation spikes are very sharp, and will scratch floors or furniture.
