    I came up with a couple of ways. The challenge, is to make it as acoustically transparent as possible.

    The best way I could think of, was to use some of those metal mesh "in/out" baskets (upside down) from an office supply store. A ream or 2 of paper would work, as well as simply books as thick as the additional height.

    But HTF-ers are pretty creative. Any other ideas? [​IMG]

    I only need a 3-6" increase in height. Don't think they make stands that small. [​IMG]

    If you are handy, you can do it with a couple of 1 x 4s and a saw.

    Cool... [​IMG]

    Actually, I have a solution I'm probably going to use: get new speakers that are taller, have the tweeters positioned higher. [​IMG] (Deeper bass extension too.)
