Sturdy construction but large footprint
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I purchased these to use with a set of Monitor Audio Silver 50 bookshelf speakers. The stands are very sturdy and look pretty nice for speaker stands. I made the mistake of looking at the instructions...they are terrible. It is common sense to put them together so I would just skip reading them. I'm not sure if it was designed this way, but it appears there are 3 holes in the top for different mount options. I set these up using one of the offset holes which allows me to keep the base close to the wall and the speakers pointed in towards the listening area about 30 degrees. This helped minimize the footprint a little. However, the footprint is pretty big compared to my old stands. If I wasn't moving speakers I would have kept my old stands just for the fact the size is better.
Pros: heavy duty
Cons: large footprint
