I'm in the midst of helping a friend set up his speakers in his new apartment. We're looking for speaker stands for the surround speakers. The problem is, we can't find any that are higher than like 30 inches. At that height, the speakers would barely come up to the armrests on the couch. We're trying to shoot for a few inches above ear level. These are large bookshelvish speakers, so poles won't really work, we need legitimate platform stand type things. I was just wondering if anyone knew where we could find some taller stands online, or in stores, or if anyone had rigged something nice using a shorter stand. Thanks very much for your attention.
