Can anyone recommend speaker stands that aren't too expensive that are compatible for the surrounds? The front, left and right front speakers will be on a credenza.
So speaker stands? Thanks.
Describe what you mean by "cannibalizing" the Quintet III's.
I modified my Quintet III's, that I originally used with aftermarket stands for my fronts, by doing the following:
Tools required: phillips and slotted screwdriver plus a 1/8"(I think) hex key
Hardware required: #10-32 x 1" round head slotted screws and #10-32 T-nuts (local hardware store)
Stands I used: Vantage Point SSR43-BB (Walmart)
Remove the 3 hex screws holding the stock Klipsch base to the speaker and remove it. You will see a rubber grommet, pull that out. Remove the 4 screws that hold the speakers/face plate to the cabinet, unplug the wires on the speakers that lead to the crossover. Remove the 2 screws holding the crossover and unplug the 2 wires from the terminals on the cabinet. Insert the T-nut into the hole (from inside cabinet) where the grommet was. Get the speaker mount post that comes with the stands, put the #10-32 screw through this and screw it into the T-nut and tighten it up. Reinstall the crossover and speaker/faceplate. Attach to the stand per instructions.
