    I have a reply from a fabricator here in Southern California who says he can make these stands per the spec sheet posted herein which I provided him. How many people are still interested and in what quantities?

    I am interested depending on price. How much?

    The price may depend on the number of seriously interested parties. Unless you're in Orange County, California/local and willing to pick them up shipping may also be a factor.

    I'd like to reply with a ceiling or range. $300/pair max? $150-$250/pair preferred? Plus UPS Ground shipping?

    Pricing depends upon quantity, gentlemen. I messaged eight companies and this was the first to respond affirmatively regarding being able to do this small job. PM your buddies and let them know. Let's all get in touch this week such that he can give us the best pricing.

    I may be picking mine up.

    Mr. Aziz has stated shipping will be UPS Ground. One can get a sense from the UPS site based upon weight, size and destination what Ground shipping costs will be.

    To see if they're still interested, I've just messaged the five persons who expressed interest in these stands years ago but haven't posted again since I joined the thread:
    • Dawgfish;
    • akajimmy;
    • drumminman;
    • boston1450; and
    • Dr_Wu.

    Update:

    In addition to boston1450, Dr_Wu has let me know that he has since purchased a pair of CRS+s with original stands.

    Hope to hear from the last three members.

    My stands are not original stands. But they do have spikes :) Good luck on your stand mission

    There is a saying s..t or get of the pot. (A) a pair of OEM ones are hard to come by (B) shipping shouldn't be considered into the equation of getting these reproducted to spec stands jeeesh pay the price and consider the shipping a convenience you got to get them somehow.

    I was fortunate enough to get a pair of OEM ones at $200 and the shipping was $75 hey I needed them shipped to obtain them so all you guys pondering because of the shipping fees s..t or get off the pot, consider yourself fortunate enough to have a chance of getting a pair of something that's hard to find or put your CRS speakers on something they were not meant to be on like they probably are now.

    CompactSDA welcome to the forum. Hang out for awhile. No disrespect but I removed myself from the list so I dont get all your responding messages. Thank you kindly. Looking forward to positive results for people looking for stands. Randy

    Have you gotten in touch with Mr. Aziz at All American Metal Fabrication to express your interest per my earlier post? If not, please do so. That is the way via which an optimal price might be achieved: His hearing from serious prospective buyers directly.

    To be clear: I am not an "agent." I am not handling purchases on anyone else's behalf much less paying for that. This is not a "group buy."

    My hope is to purchase a slightly modified, custom-fabricated stand for my FX iA6 center channel. I think it will be sexy to see that standing between two almost matching OEM CRS+ stands. I'm a little annoyed--especially in critical music listening moreso than films--with its current position a few inches off the floor, but it has to be that low because of my 82" DLP set.

    My posting here was/is a courtesy to those who, frankly, haven't seemingly done what I've done and made some off-line contacts (despite the passage of a few years . . . I agree with @gudnoyez regarding sh*tt*ng or getting off the pot!): If the price can be reduced by way of all interested parties contacting a fabricator directly in a timely fashion that would be grand. But my intent is to get a stand for myself (only) unless the pricing is outrageous.

    It's win-win, however, if you would kindly reach out to Aziz directly instead of just posting herein if you have not done so. Ditto @hytekrednek and @la2vegas.

    I sold the first pair I built, and built another pair that house my crossovers, I always wanted to build a set having external crossovers, I still have them, I probably should pull them out and give them some exercise.. LOL!! It’s been a couple years..

    "Weekend Update":

    Drumminman is also out.

    I've heard from a second fabricator who is preparing an estimate for me/us.

    Howdy, Troy.

    Which are you interested in: What Larry is maybe making or just a stand fabricated to the original spec sheet that was posted earlier in this thread?

    If the latter, per my earlier post please get in touch with Mr. Aziz at All American Metal Fabrication. Feel free to use my name (Paul S.) and let him know you're interested in a pair of the Polk speaker stands. The more folks seriously interested, the potentially lesser the price he can quote.

    Westmassguy sent me this. Is 6 3/4” right on the top?

    And yes, @westmassguy, that 6 3/4" measurement is correct.
