    I was wondering what height I should have my speakers at? The are about 13" tall. I know the company has speaker stands specifically for them that are 25" tall, but I keep reading so many people that have the same size speakers on 30" stands??
    Any suggestions?
    thanks in advance

    You want to have the tweeter at about ear level when you're sitting down usually, so a stand that brings your speaker to that height is appropriate.

    If the manufacturer has 25" stands, I'd stay within about 1-2 inches of that, taking into account what Chris said.
