Sturdy non tippable Speaker stands for JBL530

Hello, Any recommendations for sturdy stands for JBL530 speakers? The center speaker is set. I just need stands for the front left and right speakers.

Need sturdy stands that take effort to tip over. Something that the pesky 4 year olds visiting my house cannot tip over.

I have looked at the following but they probably won't work for my needs. Thanks in advance.

No they won't...I have those stands for my much smaller/lighter JBL B15s and definitely wouldn't keep them if I had kids or large dogs around.

These would be much better:

Anything metal that is sand/shot fillable will work.

~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)

No such thing as an untippable speaker stand. Something that has a low center of gravity and heavy (sand fillable) is the best choice. Something with a large area between the spikes is also a good thing (wider stance). Connecting your speaker to the stand using screws or use blu-tac if screws are not an option. If you really want it to be untippable, connect a 3 x 3 foot piece of plywood to the bottom of the stand, then any kid who is close enough to tip the speaker will have his weight on the plywood, making it impossible.

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

I built Sand Stands to my specifications. You could build a set with a larger base for stability. I used an article from Joseph P Kmetz. I will try to attach article. DIY forum may have other builds.
