Overview

Our take on the Sanus SF26 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, each gorgeous stand has a contoured 10-gauge steel base plate with two 2" diameter pillars solidly supporting 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, each gorgeous stand has a contoured 10-gauge steel base plate with two 2" diameter pillars solidly supporting a steel top plate. Both pillars and top plate feature a handsome black powder-coated finish.

But these stands aren't just about good looks. The base plate's stable platform minimizes energy loss from your speaker, giving you better performance. The rounded pillars minimize diffraction, and can be filled with shot or sand for added mass. 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 dampen unwanted vibrations. The stands come with the Sanus Foundation Mount® system, so you can easily secure bolt-style speakers to the top plate.

Top shelf stands

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Beautiful well made stands. Very sturdy platform for my bookshelf speakers.

Pros: Beautiful and well made.

Cons: Instructions need some corrections.

Great stands

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Unintimidated by the other reviewers who mentioned difficulty with assembling I decided to order these because I was drawn by their looks. They were also the perfect height to get my speakers at ear height when sitting down, and from what I could tell they were well constructed. I was not disappointed. Yes, assembly takes a couple of minutes, but if you lay out all the parts and go through the instructions carefully it all fits together logically and, more importantly, beautifully and sturdily. The adjustable carpet spikes and brass studs mean that my speakers stand solid as rock. The only thing I had wished for was an internal cable guiding mechanism, instead of the external plastic guides. Once I get my hands on a drill to make some holes in the rear pillar I will do so and then these will be perfect.

Great speaker stands

Mark from Canton, MI on 3/25/2008

Even though the instructions aren't that great, I was still able to figure out the assembly quite easily. It took about 20 minutes to put them together. They are incredibly sturdy and can also be filled with sand or steel shot to make them even less tipsy, but I don't think this is necessary. These stands work perfectly with my Polk RTiA6 bookshelf speakers and I am completely satisfied.

Cons:

Good stands once they're assembled

Jonathan from Wailuku, HI on 3/21/2008

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions for these stands are indeed vague and poorly written. The amount of individual parts for these stands seems to be a little excessive. However, if you remove all of the parts from the box and lay everything out, the stands assemble quickly and in a logical fashion. Assembly time was only about 10-12 minutes per stand. I used an electric drill to speed things up, but you can still assemble the stands quickly with only a Phillips screwdriver. These well made stands are definitely worth the money; they are heavy and rigid, sand fillable, and improved the sound of my speakers (bass response in particular). I would have given these stands 5 stars were it not for the vague instructions. Buy these speaker stands without hesitation.

Terrible assembly instructions

Stephen from Walnut Creek, CA on 6/7/2007

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The speaker stands arrive completely unassembled, which wouldn't have been a problem, except that for some reason Sanus speaker stands seem to be made of a huge number of parts -- easily upwards of 100. (My last set of speaker stands, easily equal to this in quality, required assembling perhaps 10 parts total.) <BR><BR>Even the large number of parts wouldn't have proved forbidding, except that the assembly instructions were incomplete, badly organized, and barely discernable as English. <BR><BR>I likely could have figured out how to assemble the thing eventually, given enough time, but how can Sanus ship you an utter mess in place of a real product? I figured it would be easier to return this product to Crutchfield now, when the amount of disassembly required to fit it back in the box was still minimal, rather than take the dubious chance that the product would prove to be of adequate quality when/if I finally managed to assemble it.

Features

Compatibility: The Sanus Steel Series SF26 is a 26" stand for medium-to-large bookshelf speakers up to 35 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 SF26 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.
