Adjustable Height 5 lb. Capacity Speaker Stands (Pair), Black
Many small satellite speakers have ports on the back, which are designed to improve the bass response. For best sound response, it is usually recommended to mount these speakers about 1-2 feet away from the wall, to allow the ports to work properly.
This speaker floor stand set is designed to let you mount your satellite speakers in an ideal location, away from a wall. The stands are height adjustable from about 26.8" to 43.3", allowing you to mount the speakers at your ear height when sitting. They can hold speakers weighing up to 5 lbs each.
The brackets mount onto speakers with a standard 1/4" x 20 mounting screw or via a keyhole mount. The stand tubes are hollow so that the speaker wires can be hidden within.
PROS: yet to install.
CONS: I am unable to install. I got this for the monoprice premium 5.1 speaker. but none of the 3 screws fit the speaker. Not sure this stand is made for monoprice speakers.
Thank you for your review on PID 3022! I just wanted to mention that these stands were released before our Premium 5.1 system (PID 10565) and do not include the necessary hardware for those satellite speakers, sorry to say. At this time, our best recommendation would be to obtain the screws from your local hardware store as we would be unable to supply those separately. Or, if truly unsatisfied with the stands, I can assist you in setting up an RMA for a return instead. If you would like to proceed with the return, please let me know and I will get that going right away. My apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused and I hope this helps.

However the speaker stands block the port! Keeping the port open and away from the wall is why I bought the stands in the first place! To add insult to injury. The screws they provide with the stand don't fit the - Premium 5.1-Ch. Home Theater System that Monoprice sells.
What a waste!
PROS: A speaker stand
CONS: Screws don't fit Monoprice's surround sound speakers plus the stand blocks the port in the back of the speaker
"The brackets mount onto speakers with a standard 1/4" x 20 mounting screw or via a keyhole mount."
Guess what? The Premium 5.1-ch speakers use the standard 1/4" x 20 mounting screws, but only smaller screws are included with this set. If you want to use these with the 5.1 ch satellites, you'll need to buy extra hardware at the store.
Monoprice: you really should have in bold writing something like, "While this stand supports standard 1/4" x 20 mounts, the hardware to do this is sold separately." This is extremely misleading, and makes me weary about future purchases.
PROS: Cheap, base seems sturdy
CONS: Doesn't work with Premium 5.1-ch speakers sold by monoprice
PROS: I keep coming back. You have what I need without the nonsense of the big stores and their staff...oh yeah and high prices.
PROS: These are very solid and functional stands. You can't beat the price.
CONS: None that I can think of.
The vertical support is in two telescoping sections held in place by a twist-lock collar. The upper section is smaller diameter and fits inside the lower section. That all works well except there is a bit of slop where the bottom end of the upper section does not fit snugly enough inside the larger-diameter lower section, and even with the collar tight, it allows some movement. It is not enough to cause any issues, but the lack of versatility in the mounting options and the slight wiggle in the support caused me to dock some points.
Overall, for the low price, these fit the bill just fine. In my usage they are mostly hidden behind a sofa. If you want a more sophisticated look, you may want to opt for a better quality product.
PROS: Decent quality for the price easy assembly.
CONS: Not intended for speakers that have the mounting hole on the bottom upper support section is slightly loose inside the lower section.
PROS: Inexpensive! They look just as nice as the Bose version costing $100! They hold the speaker up, plus they have height adjustment which is pretty cool. Also it's nice that you could use other speakers besides Bose on them if you wanted to.
CONS: Really no complaints. I guess they feel cheap when putting them together. But that really is irrelevant, because they work fine and look nice.
