S15 speaker stand recommendations?

Hi all,

I just picked up 2 S15 and one S35 speakers to replace a set of RM8 speakers (the center and two of the four bookshelf speakers). The S15's are ... quite large and don't really "fit" on our entertainment center. I was wondering, any recommendations for speakers stands?

Thanks in advance.

    Those are nice, thanks for the recommendation - how much should I worry about the speakers falling off the stands if they are not attached?

    Should be fine, barring kids and vacuum cleaners.

    There aren't many speakers that have a method for attaching them to a stand. That would couple the speaker to the stand when in fact it's best to decouple the speaker from the stand, but couple the stand to the floor by using spikes.

    In a situation such as yours it would have been better to purchase floor standing speakers.

    I hear people talk about this all the time with bookshelf speakers and towers. IMO, I always say teach your kids not to go near them and ALWAYS keep an eye on them when in this space. That's what I did and I've never had an issue. Just a foreign object in the DVD player....however I taught the little one at the time to use the DVD player. She slipped that one in when I was not looking. Oh how I missed those years...they are teens now.

    However, all families are different and if you just don't trust the kid or the dog then kid proof and dog proof your house and accept what this means. Speakers mounting on the wall would be the first start.....

    I've had floor standers every since we started having kids. Every time one would go near the "audio" I would warn them, once. After that was discipline time. I never had an issue with my kids touching the audio. I hear ya, I only have one kid at home now, sometimes I miss those younger days!

    I'm wondering out loud if some of the 3M Command Strips wouldn't secure them and provide a little decoupling without any perm damage?

    Won't solve the problem of pets and children attempting to climb the stands but would reduce the toppling effect.

    Sanus steel foundations and Blu-Tack. Fill the stands.
