DIY Speaker Stands for the WAF

rooftop59rooftop59 Posts: 6,145
Bought a new house, barely got these speakers in the main living area which is wide open to the kitchen. Needed some stands that would appease the better half. This was my second attempt. While they are FAR from perfect, I like the way they turned out and more importantly she seems pretty happy.

    Yes so there is a room behind the fireplace and both sides of the fireplace were open. We have 4 kids and wanted a space for them to play games and watch movies and we can shut the door. So we had those built ins built and ran the wire through the wall. Those cabinets have those perforated aluminum sheets from Lowe’s that we cut to size and painted. The sub is on there along with everything else. The other side will have a custom window panel door. It took six weeks to get in and then was busted. So hopefully around New Years we will actually be done...bought the house August 26😬

    The only issue is that I can't figure out what time it while I'm sitting on the couch.
