Center channel speaker stand. Where to buy?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I am looking for a speaker stand for my center channel. It is an RBH MC-616C (approx 20" wide / 8" height / 9" depth and weighs 24 lbs). A simple yet good looking 12"-18" high stand would be perfect. I am having a tough time finding anywhere to buy a decent stand for less than $200.

Any recommendations on where to look would be appreciated.

Thanks.

I use a shelve that you buy pieces from lowes. It is a glass piece with four chrome legs.

I got mine from Crutchfield, it's a Sanus, specifically for center channel.

Not to hijack the thread, but anyone know of any products designed to simply angle up a center channel?

I'm using some $1.99 doorstops from Home Depot, but looking for something classier.

thanks!

I suggest that you get a small bookshelf unit which can hold CDs or LPs and put it on the top.

Auralex has some pads to angle and isolate. About $45 though.

My Paradigm CC-690 (37-1/4" (w) x 10" (h) x 16-1/2" (d), 70lbs.) sits securely on a Plateau ST-CC-17 stand, which a quick Google shows as retailing for ~$100. It should work very well for your CC speaker.

Thanks for the tip. I am looking for a center channel stand for my Definitive Technology Mythos 10. Is there a way to attach the speaker to this stand you mentioned above? Wont it tip over? I believe you just gently place the speaker on the stand, and there is no edges on the stand, or tilt to hold the speaker in one place.

Not that I know of.

I have no doubt that if I were to push firmly on the speaker or the stand, they would tip over. But I have no intention of doing that. wink.gif

I put grippy shelf liner - similar to this stuff - on the top plate to help prevent any slippage. Many months later, still no slippage. smile.gif

While I don't have the center channel stand, I'm very happy with my stands from VTI. They are very sturdy/stable, look good (IMO) and reasonably priced.

You can probably find them on amazon. I bought mine from wayfair.com.

I use the stuff your place under area rugs to keep them from slipping; works very well.

Anyone thought about an Ikea Lack TV unit stand for their center channel speakers if they are huge?

something like this...

Why not go to your local muffler shop and have them cut down a 3" pipe welded to a piece of sheet meter at the bottom for the base, then a smaller piece of metal that is big enough to support the speaker on the top end made out of a thin piece of sheet metal as well. Total price should be no more than $80 bucks for a speaker stand that absolutely will not tip over, and can keep the cabinet vibrations to a minimum. I will try and post pics of mine later on.

Lack: 58-5/8" (w) x 21-5/8" (d) x 13-3/4" (h)

IMO, it's too wide (21" wider than my CC-690!), too deep and too short.

Thanks everyone for the info.

I have decided to go with a VTI DFC center channel stand.

Lots of nice stands out there but the max height I could work with was 13" (most stands were 18" high). Hopefully not a bad stand for 50 bucks. Reviews seem good for it.

VTI makes sturdy stands. I used to own a pair of VTI speaker stands for the surrounds in a previous HT set-up of mine, and they were very solid.

What stand would be perfect for these?

http://www.dynaudio.com/int/home_loudspeaker_systems/excite/excite_x22.php

http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/Speakers/Home_Audio/CM_Series/CM-Centre-2.html

It needs to be 24" to 25" high. Maby adjustable?

The CMC2 is huge, so i would need the right width and weight support.

I looked here- http://www.standsandmounts.com/centerchannelspeakerstands.aspx

But can't find anything 25" high?

Yes, I tried that exact piece with my large, Definitive Technology CLR3000 center channel. It fit well and looked good, BUT the construction is cheap, thin, and hollow. The hollowness gave it a very strange resonance, and the weight of the speaker eventually made the top of the table crack. I like some Ikea stuff, but I wouldn't recommend this.
