I have some Standesign speaker stands that I'm using with my two front speakers which are JBL N24. There is a hole in the top plate which I'm not sure if it's to run cable wire through or attach the speaker with, but since there is already a hole directly below that for the wire I'm pretty sure you're supposed to attach the speaker via that hole. In either case the N24's base screw isn't in the right place to really use the hole to attach the speaker to the stand anyway and I was wondering if what I'm considering is smart or will defeat the purpose of the stand entirely. I'm thinking of putting velcro strips on the bottom of the speakers and on the top of the plate to secure the speakers. My dad has some that he's used to secure his computer joystick to his desk and believe me that thing IS NOT going anywhere, you've got to really pull hard as hell on the thing to get it up. So, at least I know the speakers wouldn't go anywhere. I was just wondering if doing this defeats the purpose of the stands since I'd kind of be isolating the speaker from the top plate via the velcro strip? Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
