Just ordered the Monitor 30 speakers. Trying to find the best stands. I do not want pedestals that the kids can knock over. I found the Sanus HF-1 and wondering if that will mount will with the monitor 30?

or are there better options?

Those stands are too small for the Monitor 30's.

Get one of these Sanus stands.

Thanks but my concern about those stands is that it looks like the speaker just sits on top so if the kids or someone knocks into the stand they speaker goes flying off. Or what if the stand gets knocked over?
Is there a solution that the speaker gets mounted to the stand?

Get the 50's and don't worry about stands. Move the 30's to the rear and mount them on the wall.

I was originally thinking about that but I read a lot of people say that the 50's were overkill for the surround. So I orderd the 30's 2 speakers $77 on ebay.

Velcro squares/strips will or Blu Tack will secure the speaker to the top plate.

If you are worried about the stands getting knocked over how did you think that skinny little stand you originally posted was gonna work? The base and single pole is less stable than the stands I posted, especially with a 9lb speaker on top.

Oh, if you are using the 30's for surrounds already why not wall mount them? I am running 30's wall mounted for my surrounds.
