First post here, just entered the polk community by purchasing a pair of monitor 40's and a CS1 that were on sale. Very pleased so far, but the Monitor 40's are currently sitting on some textbooks, and I'd really like to get them onto some stands.
From the threads I've read so far, many of the stands recommended were $150+, which is beyond what I am willing to spend on these speakers (for that price...would have been better off just buying tower speakers).
I did however come across the Samus N24c on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Sanus-NF24c-Na...pr_product_top
I know the height isn't ideal for the monitor 40's, but it does get within 2-3" of the tweeter at ear level on my couch, and I tend to slouch back while watching movies, so I think it could work.
I have not mounted speakers on stands before, but from what I have read, hard-mounting the speakers is a big no-no. The baseplate of this stand is 8" x 8", which seems adequate, but slightly precarious.
Has anyone heard anything about these stands? Is there a way to make the speakers more stable on the stand (rubber feet...or velcro?)
Thanks a bunch, love the speakers!
