Sanus BF16B Speaker Stands
Basic Foundations® 16" (Black)
Our take on the Sanus BF16B Speaker Stands by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
How about furniture-grade speaker stands that are not only stylish, but can actually help improve your speakers' performance? Sanus' Basic Foundations® stands give you all that in an affordable package!
Basic Foundation stands are made with sturdy MDF (the same material used in many quality speaker cabinets) to resist unwanted resonance. Their twin contoured pillar design offers rock-steady support. Speaker wires run down a groove between the pillars a snap-in black cover completely conceals the wires from sight, leaving just the clean lines of the stand. The stands come with triangular isolation pads for the top plate, to protect the speaker's finish, and provide additional resonance damping.

Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The BF16b speaker stands are constructed of MDF, which offers superior strength and resists unwanted resonance. The twin contoured pillars are aligned in a "V" configuration, offering additional rigidity and providing for the Speaker Cable Management System. A cover snaps into channels on the back of the pillars, hiding the cables from view. The supplied floor spikes further minimize resonance and provide stability on carpeting. The special triangular isolation pads are placed on the top plate for speaker protection and acoustic isolation.
Note: Each stand can support up to 25 pounds.

Why did you buy this?
The price for these was very fair. I think they will work well in the space intended. The black will go nicely paired with the speakers I chose. I've never had a problem with a Sanus product. [ JUSTIN Jul 14, 2018 ]
Reviews looked alright, needed 16" tall speaker stands to hold my speakers at the correct height relative to my screen. Crutchfield has been a go-to for me for years and I'm glad that I was able to get these through them. Fast, free shipping and a company that seems to actually care about customers and has amassed an incredible amount of information about audio equipment. [ Scott Jun 18, 2018 ]

Unless they are custom made, choices (not just from this merchant) for stands of this height, necessary for where they will be located, are minimal. I was encouraged by the reviews of others, and hope they will live up to my expectations (as all my other purchases from Crutchfield have). [ John S. Jul 02, 2017 ]
Have others [ RICHARD Jun 12, 2017 ]
I chose the BF16B for my Polk TSi200's because I needed to isolate the vibrations from the speakers due to the large amount of bass that they put out. The BF16B's are made of MDF which is designed to isolate vibration which is a large reason why it is also used in the manufacture of speaker enclosures. Plus, they were very budget friendly!

Don't know. We have been using them for a while with Polk speakers and they work just fine. [ NICOLE Jul 28, 2015 ]
Absolutely. [ Todd Jul 22, 2015 ]
That is going to depend on the size of the speakers. The main things to consider are the width, depth and weight of the speakers. The stands top plate is 7" x 7", and it can support up to 25 pounds. [ Jeff May 08, 2014 ] Staff
