    I am about to buy some Paradigm Mini Monitors and I want to be able to place them on at least 42" stand. I'm having trouble finding a stand that will go that high, so I was thinking about building one. Does anybody have any advice on how to do so? Or a link to a site that has some instructions on how to go about doing it?
    Thanks

    Here's something I found couple nights ago:

    I'm hoping to try making the Flexy rack:

    but probably not the speaker stands since I'm really not good with tools (Flexy rack will be hard enough for me).
    My problem is that the top plate of the commercial speaker stands are not big enough for my B&W 602s2 speakers. People here have said it's okay if it's a little smaller so I might go with something from partsexpress as suggested. I think they have an adjustable type to 47" but I don't know if it will hold your speakers:

    Good luck,
