    Default Best aftermarket Stands - Model 10

    Hi,
    I am the original owner of my 10's from 1984. I had them on a set of speaker stands and they are starting to weaken.

    I know the polk stands are not available now & I saw a post on building some. I have a disiability and cannot do that so my option is to just buy a new set.

    Any brand names to look for or how tall of a stand should I use. I got my old stands as a BD present and not even sure they were the correct ones.

    THANKS

    The top part that the speaker sits on cracked so the speaker is sitting on a 8 x 4 flat surface & not 8 x 8. It is pretty sturdy but I want to make sure. I could look into maybe replacing just the top piece if I can get it off. The other stand is fine.

    I found these that look nice & built much better then mine!

    Default An alternative to think about

    I place (all) of my Monitor 10's on "tip toes" (remember those) on a carpeted floor and it really helps tighten up the bass. I tried stands way back when but didn't think they were worth the trouble (and "tip toes" are just about indestructable).

    HI,
    I have hardwood floors so I need stands. What would be a good height? I can get 12" or 8" stands. I was thinking the 8" would get the tweeters close to my ear height when sitting on my couch. The 12" might be to high. I wonder what the original polks were?

    THANKS

    The original stands also tilted the speaker back 5-6 degrees as a poor mans time alignment. (that actually worked pretty well)
