Years ago I bought a pair of speaker stands for my old-school 10" 2-way Energy bookshelf speakers. They are very simple: Black, flat platforms on bottom and top (top have 4 rubber pads for speakers), and the post is filled with sand to make them very heavy and non-vibrating. The stands are about 30" tall which are perfect for my front speakers. These are pretty generic. Doesn't anyone make something simple like these? I've not looked at stands in quite some time. Oh, for my back surround speakes, I made some by mirroring what I have for fronts, but I made them out of heavy redwood 4X4" posts with thick redwood platforms on top and bottom that are wood-screwed into the posts. They work fine for the rears since my rears are small 5" 2-ways.
