Very high quality, good looking ,sturdy, easy to assemble.

These are great stands for the Energy 5.1 Take Classic Home Theater System (Set of Six, Black).

The speaker wire is routed through the stand; I used 16 guage wire and it was easy, yet snug.

These stands worked with Energy Take Classic, using the screws that came with the stands. I tried Atlantic stands and did not find a good option to mount the speakers.

Use the L shaped bracket. The bolt goes into the mounting hole below the keyhole and above the terminals. The vertical side in the L goes against the speaker. The horizontal side in the L goes on top of the speaker stand pole. The terminals are below the elbow of the L. If you want a perfect fit, you can put a couple of 1/2 inch SAE washers between the L bracket and the mounting hole. They should cost less than a dollar for say a set of 8.

First off, this is a set of two stands -- the product description could certainly be clearer. The bases are good and heavy and the poles and even the L-bracket for mounting the speakers are very heavy gauge steel. The stands are not extremely tall, but they're the perfect height for my particular setup, and taller ones would probably tip (I mounted the front/back left/right speakers from a Samsung Blu-Ray HTIB with a set of 4 of these).

The tightening ring is, as others have mentioned, plastic, but it should be durable enough if it isn't over-tightened. That said, these stands really are mostly for the "home theater in a box" speakers. If you replace the ring with a metal piece (not too hard to find at a hardware store), you could probably handle heavier speakers, but they'd be more likely to tip, since the base is not terribly wide side-to-side. If I had heavy expensive speakers that needed stands, I would go for a professional grade tripod, not cheap home stands.

Assembly was ridiculously simple, though the instructions are insane in telling you to thread the speaker wire after assembly. Don't do that -- assemble the base to the first pole, thread the wire through that, thread the wire through the bent pole, THEN screw the two together. It also helps to bend back any exposed leads when pushing the speaker wire through, otherwise it will get caught on the rough surface inside. Easier yet is to just thread through some fishing line on a small sinker and pull the wire through.

I bought (4) of these to mount some small surround sound speakers. These are very lightweight stands with narrow wire passageways. They are best suited for small speakers using light-gauge speaker wire.

My primary complaint is that the telescopic height locking mechanism relies on a plastic collar situated around the "top pipe" of the stand that is forced against and into the "base pipe" via a threaded ring. The weakness of this connection became evident when I recently decided to make some height adjustments. Upon re-tightening the connection, the plastic collar on one stand pushed permanently into the base pole. As a result, I am unable to elevate the speaker and/or lock it into any position. I've considered fishing it out with a clothes hanger, but I suspect it would just fall into the base pipe again.

The stands look nice and are compact, but the locking mechanism is unreliable. I encountered a minor bugaboo with the "L" bracket that attaches the speaker to the stand. The small size of the bracket will limit access to any speaker that has centrally-located speaker terminals. To remedy this I was able to mount the speakers upside down (not that big a deal, but could be a problem depending on the placement of your speaker wire terminals).

These are very reasonably priced stands that look nice, but the locking mechanism could be a lot more secure.

Based upon others reviews I purchased two sets (four stands) for my Energy Take Classic speakers. These work great with them as others point out. I just cut the supplied foam tape into two pieces to fill the gap between the L bracket and the back of the speaker instead of going the 1/2 inch washer route. The best way to install the speaker wire is to push the wire from the exit hole near the top of the pole and out the bottom then pull the wire to length required to get to your A/V box. The rubber feet work great on hardwood floor. A gentle tap pushes them into the base. I'm very pleased with these stands.

I was impressed with these stands. I have carpet and these stands come with spikes that go on the bottom of the stands to hold them in place. I was surprised with how heavy they were and was glad to see the variety of ways to hook up speakers to the stands.

Its a speaker stand. A base and a metal pole that your speakers attach to. Yes, its simple but its the details that make it well worth the money. First, they look very nice. The black coating is nice and seems durable. The base is tear-drop shaped and is heavy to prevent tipping of your speakers. The pole screws into the base and is adjustable with a little turn knob. I like the little bend near the top that gives things a streamlined look once your speakers are connected.

The amount of stuff in the box is impressive. If you have hard floors there are little rubber feet. If you have carpeting, metal spikes are included. There is also a bunch of hardware so that many brands of speakers can be used. You can hang them by the keyhole, some other mount on the speaker or use a flat base and simply set the speaker on top. My Energy Take 5 Classics were a little weird so I had to improvise, which wasnt much of an issue because I didn't have to use anything other than what came with the stands. If your speakers are taller than the Energy Classics, you will either have to set them on the flat base or rig something else up.

I read reviews saying that the adjustment knob broke easily. I really don't know how they did it and how hard they turned the thing because it seems pretty uder friendly. Sure, its plastic but you don't have to crank it down that hard as the speakers only weigh a few pounds. The knobs only need to be tightened until resistence is felt, and your speakers don't fall, of course.

If I had one complaint it would be that running speaker wire through the pole was a little bit of an ordeal. I used 14ga wire and it was a VERY tight fit. There is no way that you could get 14ga through there. I like how there is a little notch in the back of the base for the wire. Its little touches like this that make this a good purchase. A saw the same thing at Best Buy for over twice the money.
