Question Low Speaker Stands?

I'm looking for a set of speaker stands, about 11x20", 10 to 11" high. Searching "speaker stands" naturally returns high surround stands...

Any ideas?

Search for a "center channel speaker stand."
Shortest option I found was for the Amazon Echo, but it might not be strong enough for your needs.
You might just want to try a cube:

Try searching for center channel speaker stands. Those will be closer to correct height. Usually sold each instead of as a pair though.

Edit: Sorry, missed the post before mine. What he said

You need to explain - the top plate is 11" x 20" and the stand is 10" high?????

That sounds like a Center Stand, though to know that you would have to tell us that.

Certainly Search for "Center Speaker Stand".

You could consider building or having some custom stands built. Check local carpenters and cabinet makers, or check the local Vocational School to see if anyone needs a project.

Searching Google-Images is a good way to get ideas -

Google Image Search - Center Speaker Stand -

https://www.google.com/search?safe=o...k1.S-NVMGVUuOk

Google Image Search - Wooden Center Speaker Stand -

https://www.google.com/search?safe=o...k1.gDcIRhc0t3I

Google Image Search - DIY Wooden Center Speaker Stand -

For you, maybe. I've had flatpacks that didn't look that nice when I was done.
But he could hire someone like yourself to meet his specs.

I made some myself out of 4x4 and MDF from Home Depot.

They'll even cut to size for you.

But if you want someone to make you something that will look "nice" vs spray painted black try these guys:

Can you come back when you get them with a photo, (their stock photos suck), and impression of workmanship and price value?

Thanks.

I was surprised by that too. Checking the page again, I find that the "sale" once again ends today.

Time will tell, but I'm a LOT less impressed with this company...

And now, for the 3rd day running, this HUGE SALE once again ends tonight! I'm not very impressed, I hope their stands are better than their advertising ethics.

I plan on building some stands for my subwoofers to clear my in floor air conditioner registers. They will only be about 4" tall. Haven't really thought it through too much yet as I'm still building the subs.

The list of quality manufacturers or companies with good products and crap advertising and/or websites are too numerous to mention.

Looking forward to pictures and your impressions.

They've changed their home sale to a generic "huge sale 10% off" banner.

I guess they got tired of changing the end date daily!
