Sanus SFC18 Center Channel Speaker Stand
Steel Foundations® series 18" (Black)
Our take on the Sanus SFC18 Center Channel Speaker Stand by Crutchfield's Ralph Graves
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, this handsome center channel 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 this stand isn'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 plate is equipped with adjustable speaker isolation studs and neoprene isolation pads to dampen unwanted vibrations. You also get Sanus' Foundation Mount® system, for securing a speaker with a threaded insert firmly to the top plate.

Second purchase of this well made, sturdy, all steel speaker stand. Instructions say you can add sand or steel shot to the two central posts but think you would be at it a long, long time as the openings are pretty small. Seem to work more than fine without the added weight.

Sanus SFC18 Center Channel Speaker Stand Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Compatibility: The Sanus Steel Series SFC18 is an 18" stand for center-channel speakers up to 35 lbs. The 14" (w) x 8" (d) top-plate offers adjustable brass studs for center channel speaker alignment.
Steel Construction: The Sanus Steel Series SFC18 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 plate and twin pillars are separated by self-adhesive cork resonance damping rings. This eliminates speaker resonance from passing through the stand causing distortion.
Wire Management: The steel pillars feature a concealed wire path to hide your speaker wire for a clean and neat installation. The stand is also equipped with plastic guides at the bottom and top to keep your speaker wire neatly organized.
Rubber Pads or Spikes: The stand features plastic feet and has 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 stand. The rubber pads add 0.25" to the overall height of the speaker stand.
Note: The isolation spikes are very sharp, and will scratch floors or furniture.

Why did you buy this?
I have a pair of Technics SB-RX50 speakers that even at 30+ years old are still the best sounding stereo pair I have owned. A remodel created the need for speaker stands heavier built than current standards. At 35 pounds capacity and the ideal height for large speakers this was an excellent choice and I am sure they will look good as a pair in my living room. [ William Jul 05, 2018 ]
