For satellite and surround speakers, proper positioning is a must. That's why Sanus designed their sleek, durable EFSat stands specifically for smaller speakers.

For satellite and surround speakers, proper positioning is a must. That's why Sanus designed their sleek, durable EFSat stands specifically for smaller speakers.

These stands give you plenty of placement options. Their height is adjustable from 28" to 42", so you can position your tweeters right at ear level for optimal performance. With three different mounting methods — a 2-1/2" x 3-1/4" top plate, a 5" x 5" top plate, and an "L" bracket — you can mount virtually any satellite/surround speaker, including back-bolt and bottom-bolt types. The stands are attractively styled, with a black powder-coat finish that'll look great in any room.

Features

Design: Each speaker stand contains a solid tri-corner black metal base, a slender (1" diameter) telescoping pillar with a black finish, and a choice of four different speaker mounting top plates. The mounting height is adjustable from 28" to 42" to accommodate virtually any satellite/surround speaker, including back-bolt and bottom-bolt types. There are adjustable floor spikes to provide stable footing on carpeted areas, as well as custom screw-in rubber feet to provide stability and minimal resonance on any floor surface. Each speaker stand can support speakers up to 10 pounds each.

Benefits: The job of the speaker stand is to raise the loudspeaker to ear height. When this is done correctly, most aspects of the listening experience benefit. Bass is tighter, mids and highs are clearer and imaging detail improves.

Adjustable Spiked Feet: Three spiked feet and locking nuts are provided for each speaker stand. The spiked feet 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 increases an additional 0.9" to 1.3". Note: The spiked feet can scratch floor surfaces. If you do not wish to use the spiked feet, Sanus has included rubber feet for use on scratch-sensitive flooring.

Speaker Mounting Methods: Two different speaker mounting top plates and two different brackets are furnished to accommodate most satellite/surround speaker styles. The 5" x 5" top plates and the 2-1/2" x 3-1/4" top plates can be used for bottom bolt mounting or tape mounting; double sided tape pads are provided. The "L" brackets can be used for small speakers that have a threaded insert centered on the back. A plastic spacer (provided) allows the speaker to stand approximately 1/2" away from the brackets. The "EFKQ" brackets are provided to specifically support Klipsch Quintet speakers (not sold by Crutchfield). The optional "EFB" bracket (item 051EFB) can be used with these stands to support twin bolt mount speakers, such as Polk's 7200 and 7600 system satellites. The optional "FMR100x" speaker mounting brackets are available directly from Sanus to support Boston Acoustics MR100x speakers.

Hardware: For speakers with threaded mounting inserts, three different speaker bolts are provided:

  • 5/8" Pan-head 1/4-20 bolt
  • 1" Pan-head 10-32 bolt
  • 7/8" Socket-head bolt (requires 3/16" Allen wrench--not provided)

Note: All supplied mounting hardware may not apply to your particular speaker.

Speaker Wire Management:  Wires can be concealed by routing them through an opening near the bottom of the pillar and up through the tube. There is a wire exit hole near the top of each inner extension tube and in each top mounting plate.

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Because they match a set I already have [ THOMAS  Mar 15, 2017 ]
They were the best ones that met my requirements for appearance, adjustability and speaker mounting. [ William  Jan 27, 2017 ]
They are sleek looking and hide the speaker wire. Easy to order. [ David  Dec 20, 2016 ]
Sanus quality keeps me coming back [ ROGER  Oct 08, 2016 ]
Suggested by customer rep [ Jon  Oct 01, 2016 ]
Exactly what I was looking for. [ James  May 15, 2016 ]
Work great for my mirage satellite speakers. Sanus makes a good product. I'm using them for the rear surround speakers but would also work elsewhere. [ MATTHEW  Jan 04, 2016 ]

3 questions already asked

I measure the inside diameter to approximately 0.61 cm. they have a weight limit that should not be exceeded. [ David and Gema  Jan 16, 2017 ]
I believe the RCA connector will fit inside to tube, but where it exits near the speaker I believe the opening is a little small. It could be easily opened up. [ Steve  Dec 28, 2016 ]
The tube diameter won't be a problem, about 3/4 inch. The only issue you may have is with the openings in the tube that you thread the cable through. They are oval shaped, the one at the bottom is about 1/2" X 3/4", but the top is smaller, about 1/2" X 1/4". I think an RCA will fit, just be aware that the tubes are not open on either end and you need to run the cable through the oval shaped cut outs. [ Ethan  Dec 27, 2016 ]
It will easily fit. [ TYRECE S  Dec 27, 2016 ]
I don't remember how I did it, but yes I did mount the speakers to the stands quite easily and am pleased with the setup. [ HENRY  Jul 27, 2014 ]
