    Should work, but that stand is awefully short for a surround. Generally you want the surround speaker placed 2-3 feet above your ear.

    so what speaker stand do you recommend? i was thinking about this one, its 31" high but the top plate looks a little small. If any of you have any other suggestions i'll glady appreciate it [​IMG] and im trying not to go over $110 on stands.

    Are these going to be placed close to a wall?

    Head to your local hardware store pick up some hollow wall anchors and drywall screws. Then there are these really easy to install shelves that use small wooden T shaped strips that you screw to the wall and the shelves just slide onto them. They have no problem supporting my 22lb JBL S26.

    They have two styles. One fits in a corner and does require a bottom L piece, the other one fits anywhere and uses an L piece.

    Yes, they are going to be placed close to the wall but the thing is that I live in an apartment and dont want to drill anything into the walls and just want to set up my speakers easily with the speakerstands.

    Well, here's an off the wall suggestion. Go buy a bunch of concrete cinder blocks. Stack them until they get your speaker 2-3ft above ear level. Then buy a fabric you like and drape it over the blocks.

    I went and bought some stackable plastic crates from an organizer store, satcked them 3 high, and put my speakers on them. It than gave me room to put magazines and other stuff in the lower crates. It cost me less than $20.

    Small bookshelfs work as well.

    Be creative. It doesn't have to be a speaker stand. Anything that is ~48" tall and somewhat sturdy should work, and maybe even serve several purposes at once.
