DIY outriggers for floor standing speaker?
I have the Elac Debut 2.0 F5.2. Generally it stable enough, but I'd really like to add a little more stability for when the nieces and nephews come. I've seen a site or two where people sell outriggers, but they are $100+, and that just seems unreasonable. I feel like if I could get like 4 pieces of flat metal in like 4" x 2", drill holes that would fit the screws for the spikes that come with the speaker, I could get some matching threaded bolts to bolt the metal to the speaker and either the original spikes or some better larger ones to the other ends to create the outriggers myself. My issue is that although I read up on DIY projects, I don't really do them myself. So I don't know where to get the metal to make the outriggers. Some place local like Lowes would be great, but I was hoping someone here might be able to point a newbie DIYer towards something that would work well and make my life easier in building it out. The concept seems simple enough, but as I said this isn't something I do on a regular basis.
