CC in SoCal actually carried a couple boxes of the 2005.2 stands, but I had opted not to get them because of cost and I had already found specific stands I wanted.
I didn't think I was going to run into an issue when buying Sanus Hover stands. I can tell you, late lastnight, I found a way to mount them without any customizing, although not sure it was meant to work this way? In the base of the speaker, there is a rub plug cover (oval shaped) and it does nothing but cover a hole in the base (what was this hole meant for?). I noticed that is is about center to the base and goes all the way through. So, the Sanus stand has numerous adapters and one is a small plate with two side holes and one center drilled. With one of the thumb/hex bolts Sanus provided, it slid through the speaker base and the stand mount plate, with room to spare. I tightened it up with a nuts that came with the stands and it is holding it down. I first thought that 'thumb bolt' would have fell through the hole, but there seems to be the slightest lip within the speaker base that keeps it from sliding through, which saved me from either returning the speakers or returning the stands and buying the KEF stands (I hate to be tied down to something specific). I would imagine any bolt with a head large enough to keep from sliding through the hole and is long enough, would work just fine.
Hope this helps.
