I'm new to this forum, and I had a question for you all.
I've been kicking around the idea of building speaker stands for the Monitor 50's to raise them about a foot off the ground. It's for my system in my bedroom, I have a wall-mounted flat screen centered at about 5 foot 6 inches off the ground, so I want to raise the speakers a little, so as to get the tweeters about ear level to where I'm sitting, also just about level with the bottom of the tv. I was just wondering what you would recommend on what to use as material for the stands. I have a fair amount of mdf, so I will probably try to use that for the base plate underneath the speakers, but I would like an open air look for the stands, rather than just a box for the speakers to rest on. Any general advice on stands, whether or not to use them, and how to use them would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
