Sorry if wrong forum, did not see a perfect fit for the question, and I know at the very least Phil will probably chime in! I need to get my S26II mains down to the proper level finally (been on the TV, dont ask!) and I have determined 21-22" is about right, that will get the tweeter to 36", about our seated ear height. They will need to be spiked, this is a carpeted room. (new stuff soon) The speakers weigh 22lbs each, and measure 10"x10" at the base. I have among my 4 boys a 3yr old, so the stands should be sturdy. I think I prefer wood, but am open to options. They must be affordable....wife it nuts over my recent expenditures! (and I stll need to get my new receiver! LOL!) I have found these from Tech-Craft...really don't know anything about them except they are rated to 50lbs and are 7 1/2 square on the top. http://www.racksandstands.com/prods/...htm#additional Most stands seem to be for those wimpy waf cubes, though I have seen plenty that look sturdy/big enough in pictures, but the sites rarely mention weight capacity. Doh! Any input is welcome as usuall! Thanks!!!!!
