If you need a new set of speaker stands, you will find a wide variety of options available online. There are literally hundreds of different types, makes and models, but how do you know if you are getting the best value for your money? You need to make sure that you buy high-quality stands that will last for many years. Speakers can be used in any room of the home including the living room, music room or family room. However, there are specific types of speaker stands that should not be used in these areas:
A home theater speaker stand is specially designed to improve your listening enjoyment, regardless of what the application, optimally balancing sound quality against the walls and flooring that may cause unnecessary distortion. However, how do you determine which speaker stands are best for you? The first step is to ensure that they are designed for use with speakers that are compatible with your home theater system. In addition, you will need to determine the optimum size and shape of the speaker stands to match the speakers you have. You will also need to consider any room size restrictions.
Standing speakers are designed to be viewed from a comfortable distance and in any room, regardless of its size. They are also designed to take the entire weight of the speakers on their center pole, so all the speakers will be equally supported. A standing speaker set consists of a single center pole speaker and at least one surround speaker. The design of most stands is to allow the front speakers to hang down and be viewed while you are listening. For these speakers, the stand should be designed so that the woofer is mounted to the back of the stand.
When shopping for speaker stands, you will discover there are two main types – the free standing speaker stand and the professional speaker stand. Each type has advantages and disadvantages. As you look at the different stands, you can decide what will work best for your specific needs. For larger rooms, where you plan to place many speakers, the free standing speaker stand will be the most effective. However, if you plan to move the speakers around frequently, a professional designed stand may be better.
Free standing stands are designed to hold just about any style or brand of speaker that you can imagine. You can choose from small compact models, to large, strong models designed for specific amounts of sound. A stand can be designed to suit your particular need, so it is best to shop around before making your final decision. You should try out several stands until you find the perfect one. The prices vary widely.
Professional designed stands are available in a wide price range. They are made to withstand heavy use, including storage during transport and assembly. The stand will also need to be designed to fit the specifications of all the speakers that will be placed on it. The stands come with different features designed to hold different types of speakers. They are designed so that the proper positioning of each speaker is ensured in a way that does not damage the speaker’s components.
If cost is an option, you can always design your own stand. This is possible with the help of a few DIY’ers. The materials that you will need to purchase will depend upon how elaborate you want your stand to be. A basic model will typically consist of four main pieces – a front panel, the base, arms, and brackets.
Where do I buy my stands? There are many places that sell stand units designed for specific uses. They include home improvement stores, audio retailers, sound system retailers, and online distributors. If you cannot find what you need, you can have a stand custom-made.
