There are many possible uses for speaker stands. While they may seem like a bit of a niche product, they can help immensely when it comes time to set up a proper sound system in your home. Before we get to our review of one of the best sets of speaker stands available, we are going to look at a few of these possible applications.
Of course, the most prevalent use for speaker stands is in an audio room. If you are a fan of music or even a music creator, you can agree that the best way to create music is wearing headphones, but the best way to experience music is through a proper sound system.
If you have a particular room for your music listening needs, that would be the best place to position your speaker stands.
The next use for speaker stands is in a gaming room. If you are looking to make your gaming experience as immersive as possible, few things can beat a dedicated room with a powerful sound system. Surround sound can make you feel like you are in the game, and speaker stands or wall mounts are almost necessary for it.
Another use is in your home theater. If you are hoping to create a quality home theater, you can't spend your whole budget on the display, even though that is going to be a huge part of it.
You will find that sound is just as integral to a home theater as it is to a real one. After all, you don't go to the cinema and hear the movie through tinny-sounding little speakers.
As you can see, there are plenty of possible home applications for speaker stands. Before we move on to our review, we will be taking a look at a characteristic which is integral to finding the best speaker stand possible. Feel free to skip right down to the review if you would prefer.
As with most other larger products that are meant for the home, you will find that you have to assemble the vast majority of speaker stands. Speaker stands come disassembled so they can cut down on the shipping cost. This is because a larger package will cost more money and it will be less convenient to handle.
Objects which are sent in pieces are also harder to break while they are in transit, so a disassembled product will also be superior regarding durability. Regardless of the reasons why products such as speaker stands come disassembled in the mail, let's look at why it is important for them to feature a simple assembly process.
A product which is easy to assemble will take up less of your time, allowing you to get it together and put it to use within a short timespan of receiving it. This is better for the more impatient of us, as it allows the buyer access to their product quicker.
Some products may be so difficult to assemble that they may require the aid of others to put together. In these cases, you may end up having to call over some friends or family members to help you put your speaker stand together.
These speaker stands are made by the Sanus brand. They are some of the best speaker stands that we have come across thanks to their excellent combination of features.
- Features an adjustable height which ranges from 26 inches to 39 inches
- Features a teardrop base which is weighted for greater stability
- Comes included with rubber feet as well as carpet spikes for added versatility
- Features a maximum weight capacity of 4 pounds
- Features a choice of either brackets or a QuickMount adaptor for speaker mounting
- Features steel pillars with a wire management system
- Features a low-profile design for better visibility
- Comes included with a set of two speaker stands
These speakers highly impressed us, all the way from their aesthetic which ensures that they don’t grab attention (which is ideal for a home theater) to their sturdy design. While they may look flimsy, you will find that they are some of the most durable speaker stands that you will come across.
The inclusion of a weighted base ensures these stands will never end up toppling over and ruining the speakers which are mounted on top of them due to excessive vibrations.
The durable heavy-gauge steel pillars are also hollowed out for easier wire management.
It is also surprisingly easy to mount your speakers on these stands, as you have a choice between traditional mounting as well as a QuickMount adaptor.
The QuickMount allows you to quickly install speakers that feature a keyhole on their rear surface, but the L brackets should work for all other models.
We also took a look at what other customers had to say about this set of speaker stands. Most of them were impressed by the quick and simple assembly process, which had these speaker stands ready in a matter of minutes. The durability of these stands was also praised, with some customers stating that they have worked for several years.
Some customers were unimpressed by the difficulty of using the cable management system, as you have to jam the cable into a small groove for it to fit properly. Some customers also had issues with the ease of use for the QuickMount system.
If you are looking for the most affordable speaker stands, these may not be the best option. This is one of the more pricey speaker stand sets for lightweight speakers, but they do not lack for quality. Two of these speaker stands can be purchased from Amazon for about 50 dollars.
If you want lightweight speaker stands for use in your home theater, this product from Sanus may be one of your better options. If you have any questions or concerns about this review, feel free to leave us a comment down below.
