I'm having a devil of a time trying to find stands for my Athena Technologies S2 rear channel speakers. Wall mounting is out of the question due to room limitations and lack of WAF. The problem with finding stands is that the S2's are both heavy (18lbs each) and oddly shaped with the following dimensions: 14 1/4" H x 9 1/2" W x 12 3/4" D. Because they are rear channel speakers I want them at least 2-3 feet above ear level and it is proving difficult to find stands that are tall enough, deep enough, and sturdy enough to hold them. Any suggestions? My fronts are Athena AS-F1's with an AS-C1 center channel. Should I give up and try to pick up a pair of AS-B1's? My wife has a pair of old KLH 911B's and a pair of Kenwood HTIB rear speakers with stands but I hate to mix brands, especially since the other speakers are not in Athena's league IMHO.

Thanks. I've already checked them out but the tallest speakers they sell that can handle the weight seem to be 38" or 42" I was hoping to get them a little higher off the ground but I may just be stuck. I was looking at the option of buying a pedestal (usually used for a plant or to showcase some decorative pottery) but I'm not sure about if they would work as speaker stands or the WAF.

Even if you got a pair of AS-B1's, what would you mount those on to get 2-3ft above ear level?
