Keeping my kids and speakers safe - how have you done it?

post #1 of 3

Hello,

I have Infinity Primus 250 speakers, weighing in at 35lbs each.

I've got two little kids, both who weight less than the speakers, and I'd like to make sure they don't pull them down on their heads. I'm thinking the only way to do this is to use earthquake style straps, but that would require me to screw directly into the wood of the speaker and my wall...which I'd prefer not to do (at least not damage either - are there super strong glue/velcro straps out there?).

Any suggestions how I can get these speakers up and safe?

Thanks,

Maybe some outriggers would be the solution to your problem? They will give you a wider base and make them less tipsy.

I have the same concern with my Energy RC-30 towers. When my daughter was learning to walk she pushed one into the wall a couple times. Now that she is 2.5 she doesn't bother with them at all. I'll have the same problem with my 4 month old in about 10 months.

The bases on my RC-30's are detachable, and I am thinking about building some custom bases to act like outriggers, that I can fasten directly to where the original bases attached.

Thanks for the tip, I spent some time checking out that website. It surely looks interesting, but I can't tell exactly how stable they'd be if my 2 1/2 year old pushed on the top of the speaker. I'll keep digging around - if you do build out the broader bases, I'd be interested in seeing what that looks like. I'd be great to do the same, but I don't have the skillset or the tools!
