Center channel speaker stand (Black)
Our take on the Sanus NFC18 by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
A sturdy perch for your center channel speaker
Looking for an attractive way to position your center channel speaker? The solidly built NFC18 is a great option. It's perfect for folks who don't have room for the center channel in their entertainment center, or for placement below a wall-mounted TV or projector screen. Putting your left and right speakers on stands as well? The NFC18 matches the look of the other models in the Sanus Natural Foundations lineup.

Sanus NFC18 Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
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 have a large center channel speaker and I needed a speaker stand that will give it proper support. [ E Feb 11, 2017 ]
order Polk Audio LSi M703 bookshelf speakers and the size and weight are to much for my current stands. I will use this in a side stands! [ J. PATRICK Dec 21, 2016 ]
Needed to get speakers off the floor for better sound quality. [ DarrenDSwitchD Nov 30, 2016 ]
Needed a good Center channel speaker stand. [ J Aug 13, 2016 ]

2nd purchase. Works well; sturdy; stylish. [ Jonathan Feb 07, 2018 ]
Just right for new projection room [ Joseph C Jan 25, 2018 ]
I needed a stand for a heavy PSB center channel speaker. I know Sanus to be a great product from previous purchases. The item was actually on sale so along with the brand confidence and reduced price AND coming from Crutchfield this was the very best option. [ Brian Dec 14, 2017 ]
Match my other stands [ Carl Nov 25, 2017 ]
4 questions already asked
I used this to mount a similar Polk Central Channel speaker, CSIA6. It looks great and stable. [ KRISHNASWANY Feb 16, 2018 ]
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 ]
I have that exact center channel and had no issues. [ David Feb 15, 2018 ]
I believe it can. It is a very sturdy and stable stand for center channel speaker. [ Kirit Feb 15, 2018 ]
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. [ RAJEEB Feb 15, 2018 ]
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. [ Krissy Feb 25, 2015 ] Staff
We do list this stand as a recommended accessory for that center channel speaker. [ Jeff Dec 26, 2013 ] Staff
Yes, very easily. [ Doc Feb 05, 2018 ]
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 ]
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 ]
I don't know the dimensions of your center channel, but this stand would have no issues supporting 40 pounds. [ Matthew Feb 03, 2018 ]
