    Default Short Speaker Stands?

    I hope I'm posting this question in the right forum - if not, please move it, and let me know the correct one.

    I'm looking for some REALLY short speaker stands for my Monitor 7's. I've been using the 8-10" Plateaus that I got when I bought the speakers new back in 1982.

    We've been moving some furniture around, and now they're a little too tall for our current setup. (WAF, but I'm afraid I have to agree...)

    We used to have a set of stands for my wife's old Sansui speakers that just raised the speakers an inch or two off of the floor, and tilted them back at a bit of an angle. Is anything like that available? I did some checking online, but I couldn't find anything.

    Thanks for any ideas. Oh, and I'd prefer to buy, rather than build.

    If I can find something, the Plateaus might end up as a karma item, if there's any interest.

    Lightbulb Lovan Jazz

    Not sure what your budget is, but check these out:

    The 6" version may work for you. They can be had much heaper if you search the net.

    I recently purchased the 18" version and really like them. The spikes are adjustable and you could tilt them if need be. They look much better than the photo's suggest. Enjoy!

    Lovan(Sound Anchors Knockoff) and Sound Anchors are a bit pricey Conradicles, as a casual suggestion.

    I'd check out the previous recommendation of www.racksandstands.com as they are bound to have a proper fit for you.

    Thanks, all.

    I checked Racks and Stands - the only thing close to what I need is a 5 1/2" set from Wood Technology that was of rather poor quality, according to the reviews. (It also doesn't look like it has any tilt.)

    The Lovan is probably a bit more stand than I need; they're all too tall, as well.

    I may end up building something, after all. What's the correct angle?

    Wood Tech lacks tilt. I have a set of like 6" stands from them and I spiked only the front to give them a bit of a tilt.

    Thanks, Bob.

    Upon closer inspection, I may be able to cut down the Plateau stands to a suitable height. They also have the right tilt.
