Sanus NF36 Speaker Stands
Natural Foundations Series IV 36" (Black lacquer)
Our take on the Sanus NF36 Speaker Stands
High-performance speakers deserve high-performance stands. From top to bottom, Sanus' latest wood speaker stands combine fine furniture looks with ultra-rigid construction for solid support and optimum sound quality.
Each base and top plate is made of anti-resonant MDF and has a smooth low-luster black finish. Brass speaker studs and neoprene pads are included to isolate the speaker from the top plate. Plastic feet for the underside of the base plate protect wood or tile floors (adjustable carpet spikes also included). A patent-pending concealed speaker wire path on the rounded support pillar keeps cables out of sight. Assembly takes just minutes.

Sanus NF36 Speaker Stands Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Design: Each base is made of anti-resonant MDF finished with three coats of hand-sanded black lacquer. Adjustable floor spikes are included to provide stable footing on carpeted floors, and to further minimize resonance. A single sturdy black wood pillar supports the low-profile top plate, which features a choice of neoprene isolation pads or brass isolation studs. Plastic wire covers give your speaker stands a neater look by concealing the wires completely.
Spiked Feet: 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 is adjustable from 35.5" to 35.75". Note: If you do not wish to use the spiked feet, Sanus has included plastic isolation feet that will not scratch your floor.
Brass Studs: These upward facing brass studs hold the speaker stable and minimize resonance. They add approximately 0.20" to the overall height of the stand.
Neoprene Pads: The sharp points on the brass studs can scratch the bottom of the speaker. If this is of concern, you can use the supplied neoprene pads to stabilize the speaker.
Weight Capacity: Each speaker stand can support up to 25 lbs.
Top Plate Dimension: The top plate that the speaker sits on is 6" wide and 6" deep.

Reputation of the manufacturer, but disappointed in the lack of stability of the stand. [ DONALD Mar 21, 2016 ]
It looks good, got good reviews, and was the needed height. I had purchased some decent Infinity bookshelf speakers for my bedroom...and then bought too short stands to fully clear the foot board of the bed. Still sounds good, but I'm sure not getting the full capability of the speakers. [ David Feb 27, 2016 ]
I chose these stands because they are affordable and they are 36 inches high. They appear to be sturdy as well. [ JAMAL Jan 06, 2016 ]

Needed a 36 inch stand for dolby atmos speakers... These fit the bill... Attractive, and the right height. [ Michael Oct 19, 2017 ]
I'm wanting to get up close and personal with my fabulous Klipsch R15-PMs :) Hopefully the speaker stands will arrive soon because I am having my kids hold the speakers at 3' high; it makes the sound more full and lifelike ... but their arms are getting tired :) [ Gregg Jul 25, 2017 ]

6 questions already asked
It's tough to say if the existing plate (6 x 6) is adequate. I have bookshelf speakers that measure 6.5 x 6.5 so mine fit perfectly. MIne are just sitting on there though on those sharp brass studs (they are spikes actually but not to be confused with the floor spikes) that also come with the stand. If I wanted to, I could easily knock them off the stands with my hand as they are not anchored down but only resting on the studs. Your speakers are likely heavier than mine and would resist being knocked off as the stud spikes might settle in a little deeper. You can have the spikes dig into neoprene pads that come with it also if you don't want the spikes digging into the speaker wood itself. Unless you have a lot of activity like kids throwing balls around or kids running around, I don't think the speakers will fall off. Mine have never come close to falling off. I think if you let the spikes (brass speaker studs) dig into the self adhesive neoprene pads that come with it, I think they will be OK. [ Wade Jun 27, 2017 ]
There are stands with a bigger top plate. Consider checking other brands. I think velcro is inevitable if I you want to avoid an 'accident'. [ ISMAEL Jun 26, 2017 ]
I had to use double face tape so I wouldn't knock speakers off on the floor. I dislike the stand [ Gus Jun 26, 2017 ]
Should work. The top plate looks small but I used some good two sided tape and it is working well. [ Michael Jun 21, 2017 ]
Yes, they can hold 25 lbs. each. [ Andy Jun 20, 2017 ]
I bought these for my klipsch r-14 bookshelfs and they fit on the platform nicely the speakers are just slightly bigger than the platform. Just compare the dimensions between the r-14 and do-160m to get an idea of how they'll fit [ Adam Jun 20, 2017 ]
The Sanus NF36 wouldn't have any problems supporting the PSB Alpha B1 speakers. For more details or to discuss further, please feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Hope that helps! [ Larry Jun 18, 2017 ] Staff
Never attached the rubber feet, so you wont have o remove then (they are optional ). I just measured the base it is just under 1" at its peak. It is not quite 1" and just a tad higher than 7/8", i also tuck under couch. [ Michael Jul 25, 2016 ]
I have 4 of these stands for 5.1 surround, but do not have def techs. I'm using KEF IQ-3, which are 14" tall, 13" deep and 9" wide. They weigh 14.8 lbs. The stands work fine with these speakers, however, if bumped hard enough, they would fall over. I have not had that happen, but it is a possibility. [ ROBERT Aug 08, 2015 ]
I have used the NF36 before, it is a sturdy stand. In my opinion however the top plate is not large enough to support a speaker 16" deep without some minor modification. You would need to attach a second, larger top plate to the 6" x 6" that comes with the NF36. If you were to set a 16" deep speaker directly on the 6" x 6" plate the speaker would be poorly balanced and unstable. [ DAVID Aug 06, 2015 ]
They should fit just fine. I have the klipsch rs-62s on them and that is a big speaker and they still fit. [ ROBERT Aug 06, 2015 ]
I'm using the same stand that you might be buying. The speaker I ordered is a Samsung that I velcro onto stand to keep on stand. [ Paul Aug 06, 2015 ]
I don't have those specific speakers but the ones I have mounted are about 12 lb @ 10"x7"x8" and to me I feel like anything heavier would be too much for the balance. Though I am sure these stands can support the weight, the wooden bases would probably tip pretty easily with such heavy speakers raising the center of gravity [ Nathaniel Aug 06, 2015 ]
I have Klipsch RB-61's on mine that are about double the surface area of the top of the stands. The stands handle these without any issues, no vibration, or worries about them toppling off. Not familiar the A26's but these stands are great! [ JOE D Jul 18, 2015 ]
I had a a set of speakers that were 10X9X19 and had no problems with the stands on carpet. [ Darrell Jul 14, 2015 ]
I have Bose 301 and it large enough to hold them I also use none slip pads I got at home depot they come in 12 pack they are round and about 2inchs I used 4 on each speaker just in case they cost $2.00 a pack buy them [ rick Jul 13, 2015 ]
No, I do not think the stands are large enough, although you could put a larger piece of wood on top to accommodate the larger footprint. And (IMHO) the speakers weigh too much, making the stand top heavy and prone to topple, unless braced somehow. [ STEVE Jul 13, 2015 ]
I don't know how big Boston A26 speakers are. I use the stands for a pair of old JBL 4408 studio monitors. 8" woofer and tweeter in pretty heavy cabs, stands are in the corners of my living room so kids can't knock them over. Works great. [ Robert Jul 13, 2015 ]
I'm using them with a pair of Monitor Audio BX2 bookshelf speakers. Almost the exact same dimensions as the Boston A26. They work just fine. [ ROWLAND H Jul 13, 2015 ]
I have no idea since I know nothing about the speaker. The stand was great for the speaker we put on it (little Sony speaker). It was easy to assemble and looks really good. Sorry I can not help. [ PETER Jul 13, 2015 ]
tough call. I'm using it for speakers that are about an inch narrower than the A26. I would do it myself, but the stand might be a bit too narrow here for some tastes. It is certainly safe; it won't fall off the stand. [ steve Jul 13, 2015 ]
I'm using these stands with Polk speakers that are about one inch narrower, two inches deeper, and the same height and weight as the Boston A26s you cite. The stands look good and work fine with my speakers. I don't think you'll have a problem -Larry on Whidbey Island, Washington [ LAWRENCE W Jul 13, 2015 ]
I don't know. But go to the Sanus website, download the technical information bulletin and all the dimensions are shown. [ KIRK Jul 12, 2015 ]
