Inexpensive, unobtrusive, and very functional.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Atlantic Satellite 77305018 2 Speaker Stands (Black) (Electronics)
The reason I have given 5 stars is due to the price, the height, and excellent functional design. As you know, speaker stands are ridiculously overpriced. These are reasonable.
Speaker wire can be completely hidden. The wire feeds through the stand and comes out the top for connection to your speakers. There is a cool little "U" shape on the front foot where the speaker wire comes out on the bottom. It keeps the speaker wire directed where you want it to be directed on the base. It's a very well thought out design feature that I've not seen on other stands. With tile floors, it makes a big difference for me. It keeps the speaker wire directed under the sofa where I want it so it can't be seen.
Now on to stability-
If you have hard flooring, you will be able to extend the stands all the way up if you screw the speakers to the bottom plate. The base is surprisingly stable and it has rubbery stuff on the bottom to keep it from sliding. If the stands will be on carpet, you may not be able to fully extend them unless you have small speakers. My son's system has small speakers. They are back mounted to the stand with a screw and nut that fit inside a metal bracket that can be removed for screw mount. His speakers are on berber carpet. With his small lightweight speakers he is able to fully extend these with no wobble.

I'm thinking of buying these stands but I need to know what the largest size speaker wire that will fit inside the stand? I've looked everywhere, I've even tried calling the manufactuer and have yet to hear back. So any help would go a long way. Thanks

Can these stands be used with Bose accoustimas speakers?

I Imagine it would be more stable on carpet if you mod it by replacing the rubber with screws so a long thread portion protrudes down, the length being relative to the depth of the carpet. Dremel the screws to a point so they penetrate the carpet, but not so sharp they cause damage. The pointier (word?) the screw the more stable the stand.
