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.

"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: Sturdy, well built, inexpensive.
CONS: A bit too small for higher gauge speaker cable.
PROS: Bought these because of the price for small front speakers. Tough to thread the 14G speaker wire I also purchased, but got it through ok. I wouldn't try it with any bigger gauge. Work great, quality is fine, simple design lines, and price is a whole lot better than the competition. Highly recommended for smaller speakers.
The weights are cheap cast iron with questionable threads. Be gentle, and if they don't thread the first time try flipping the weight over and going from the other side, or try the weight for the other base.
Yes it seems strange the correct machine screws for the 10565 speakers are not included, but the 1/4-20 x 1/2 machine screws are cheap and readily available.
The set screw/universal mount interface been mentioned as a weak point so I carefully worked the set screws in and out (to tap an nice thread) before tightening them. I recommend mounting the universal mount to the speaker before mounting it to the stand.
Threading speaker wire has been described as difficult, so if possible feed it from the top with the stand at its minimum height and it will be much easier.
The height locking nuts have correctly been described as delicate, so be gentle. Remember speaker orientation can be adjusted at the same time as height.
Stability on carpet has been correctly described as problematic, but whereas one tends to install the bases with the feet at 90 degrees to where the speaker faces, if you orient the base with one of the feet directly below the speaker (i.e. facing the same way as the speaker) it will be much more stable.
All in all good stands, and by doing the above I broke nothing and they are very functional. Hope this helps someone.
PROS: Sleek modern look.
CONS: Get what you pay for.
PROS: Easy to set up. Nice balance for the base to keep them from tipping. Small footprint.
CONS: Main tube is too narrow to run decent gauge speaker wire through, that's about it.
