Most wood speaker stands are not massive or rigid enough to couple the speaker effectively to the floor, and speaker performance is adversely affected.
I recommend the SANUS Steel Foundations stands, which are strong and have a center column (or two), which can be filled with steel bird shot or sand.
Good stands can make a lot of difference in performance.
The base of the stand should have spikes, and the speaker can be placed on some sort of hard material on top of the stand. Poker chips will work, or quarters.
Velcro is too mushy and soft; bad idea.
If you want to secure the speaker, run velcro from the back panel of the speaker to the bottom of the stand's top plate.
