    Glass Floor Speaker Stands (pair) - Black

    Improve the bass response and tighten up the imaging of your floor mounted speakers using these Glass Floor Speaker Stands from Monoprice!

    Mid-sized speakers are usually too small to fit on a bookshelf, but placing them on the floor can cause problems with sound quality. For one thing, the drivers are not at the same height as your ears, which means that your ears are not in the center of the cone of sound produced by typical cone drivers (ribbon tweeters are an entirely different matter).

    Another problem is that woofer is so close to the ground that almost half of the sound cone is directed into the floor, where it either gets muffled by carpeting or brightened by a non-carpeted surface. This can cause a muddy bass response that lacks the punch and tightness that it should produce.

    These stands solve the problem by lifting the base of your speakers to a point about 23.6" above the floor, thereby lifting the speaker cones to a point much nearer your ears when in a seated listening position. It also gives the woofer a chance to "breath" and expand before it gets reflected and attenuated by the floor. The result is a much tighter bass response coupled with improved clarity across the frequency spectrum.

    These stands are constructed on tempered glass with aluminum vertical supports. They support up to 22 lbs. (10 kg) weight and are 23.6" tall. The lower glass plate is 0.5" (12mm) thick and measures 11.8" x 9.8" (300 x 250 mm), while the lower plate is 0.24" (6mm) thick and measures 9.8" x 7.9" (250 x 200 mm). Each order includes two (2) speaker stands.

    Easy to assemble, do the job, reasonably good-looking

    Pros: Easy to assemble
    Not bad looking
    Perfect size for bookshelf speakers

    Cons: None, though price seems a bit high. Saw them cheaper last week but wasn't ordering that day.

    They hold my bookshelf speakers perfectly. The carpet stand-offs are nice (though the hard-surface-floor cups don't fit snug to the ends of the standoffs, making it fiddly to get all 4 correctly positioned to prevent scratches).

    Nice looking, functional, better with some improvements

    Pros: Steady, stylish, easy to assemble, large top plate, price/performance

    Cons: need some work to fill the pillars, spike not sharp.

    I have a pair of KEF Q300s. After some research , I finally pick this stand for several reasons 1)it has almost the largest top plates among the stands. Even Factory original stands for similar sized speaker, like B&W STAV24, can not compare with it(7"x7"). Definitive Technology StudioMonitor Speaker Stands has the comparable sized top plate, but that's $150. 2)glass plates are much better than the wood or MDF bottom plate from some popular brands. 3)I believe that two pilar design is better than one . 4) gloss black is quite stylish.
    I don't care about the cable management. That will only waste the money on extra length of speaker cable. After all, Why would I want to hind the beautiful Cardas cable with extra money ? I filled the pillars with metal beads which is about beans' size. So I simply seal the hole with a piece of whatever plastic inside the pillar and fixed it with tapes. MY SUGGESTIONS: It would be better that the manufacturer can offer plastic covers to seal the holes when the users choose to let loose the cable.
    The other issue is that the spikes(or more suitably, cones, ) is only good for hard floor. It's short and fat. So don't expect that it can pierce the carpet. You will need a set of sharp spikes to go through. FYI, the thread of the spikes is M6.
    Despite all that, I am happy with it.

    Nice, but not without it's flaws

    • Matthew Baker,

    Pros: Elegant looking
    Priced well
    Speaker cable channel

    Cons: Assembly process isn't accurate
    Supported speaker footprint is entirely insufficient, even for smaller tower speakers
    Carpet spikes may or may not work on your carpet

    I purchased these to help raise up my Polk 60 loudspeakers from the floor to make some corrections to the soundstage of my theater. Now that I've received them and had a chance to look them over, assemble, and use I want to add some thoughts to the process:

    They do look elegant, for the price. However I have yet to find a pair of tower speakers that fit on the top footprint. I was foolish enough to think my skinny Polk's would fit with ease, and it wasn't true. The top plate is rather tiny for the purpose, trust me. Also you'll need to make sure your tower speakers have removable feet on the bottom, as you'll need a perfectly flat bottom surface. The included carpet spikes only work marginally well on some carpet surfaces, for example my berber carpeting in my theatre room. I have opted to use a custom fabricated solution that screws into the posts instead because I was far too nervous to use what they included. The assembly process doesn't align the top and bottom plates really at all, so without a lot of care you'll assemble these units skewed or rotated. A real pain in the neck.

    For the price + the cost of shipping these, I was expecting something a little more thought out for assembly and the demographic of tower speakers it intends to support. I'm accustomed to Monoprice items being designed with care and thought.

    Even though I will need to modify and mickey these to work with my towers I won't be returning them, it's not worth the return shipping I'll be charged. If I can't use them, they'll make really nice plant stands.

    My recommendation to Monoprice is to create a set of these with a larger base and top plate, and include an alignment cup on the bottom plate for the tubes, then they would be fantastic.

    Great Value Speaker Stands

    Pros: Price and quality are both ideal for these small speaker stands.

    Cons: Really the only negative is that the tubes do not seal to the base. As a result, filling them with sand for additional stability is not an option. Otherwise, these are a "5".

    These were exactly as represented. They were packaged well and were easily and quickly assembled.

    glass floor speaker stands

    • blindmongoose,

    Pros: Look very nice.has cable management in the back pillar can easily handle 10g for standard speakers. It is a sturdy well built product.

    Cons: If you have bicables for your speakers as I did running 12g was a problem trying to pass it through the slits on top and bottom of pillars had to get a file and shave away. Now for the real let down. Quality control could be way better. One of the rear pillars had a 2 inch scratch and slight dent on it along with that whole area not being painted. So I repaired . Another problem was one of the spikes that goes on the bottom was damaged. The threaded part of the spike was missing there was just a stud. I used an epoxy to glue it. Oh I have wharfendales diamond 220 and I did notice a change in the base from the wood stands I replaced.

    Over all look sharp ,hi end. Tailor made for my speakers. Just wish they had quality control. I should of sent it back but i like to fix things so I kept them. I know it's preference but not sure if I like the change in bass. They get 5 out of ten stars due to non existent quality control.
