    Very nice stands, paint them with flat black paint (spray). I have to agree with the sand filling thing! Metal speaker stands can resonate. I am in the process of building my "wood" speakers stands with material from Home depot (no more than $30)

    Very nice . I built a pair of stands from old planking which I removed from a house that I am redoing. Cost me only about three bucks for 3 cans of black spray paint.

    I like the idea about filing with lead or sand, seems like the alum might ring some
    I filed mine with grout

    I would consider bedlining them; gives them a textured finish with durability and grip.

    Nice industrial look and probably indestructible.

    Question to all the folks above. Now that the metal is "welded" just how would you fill it with sand or shot? Use a "transporter to beam the material inside?

    Long strip of dynamat along the back might help with the ringing if you dont want to fill
