Hey, I have two 300 watt Surround speakers that are about 2.4 cubic ft and weight in at 80lbs. Now, should I get a speaker stand to bring them to ear level? Also... (Their 1ft high) I was thinking of using 14 inch long sonutubing ( about 10inch in diameter) with a solid HDF base. Of course I'll proberly fill the sonutube with rocks I guess... Would this be a good idea? At the moment it seems my big couch is blocking the surrounds. As well should I get small speaker feet. ( err. don't know the term for these sharp things that go into the carpet) For 80lbs is it really needed? The carpet is moderately thick. All opinions welcome.
