Reviews around buy (5.00 of 5)

  • But for a afforable, decent looking stand, they are a good buy.
  • and I think they are a good buy but just remember a couple of things.
  • It took 5 minutes to put these together for $50 a very good buy.
  • Aside from the good price, the product was very nice and the negative write ups were a concern for me at first but didn't hurt at all buying and installing it.
  • Since I knew that going in, I still think that buying these stands (discontinued item) was a good buy for forty bucks.

Reviews around plate (4.52 of 5)

  • The upper plate is smallish, and works as a decent guide for the size of speaker that is appropriate for these stands
  • Next, the hole in the top plate for speaker wire is too small for 14 gauge speaker wire, and in the middle of the plate, meaning you will have to put your speaker on top of it .
  • The top plate is very small - Speaker wire shows through the front
  • Yes the hole on the top plate is too small to run the speaker wire through, but I just ran it out back and behind the plastic sheathing on the backs of the stands
  • Only two complaints here: As other reviewers mentioned, there is a hole in the top plate for the speaker wire to fit through

Reviews around job (4.51 of 5)

  • You can easily damage them during assembly - The little rubber pads are tiny and do not stick wellOverall, they do the job.
  • They'll do the job, but I'm not particularly impressed with the quality
  • But, with that fixed, it was the perfect height (for me), and did it's job well
  • These are 'wood-ish' and serve a good job of providing a stand for your speaker.
  • Pad is 5"x5", but Isolation pads do a good job of holding the speaker in place.

Reviews around finish (4.51 of 5)

  • But small price to pay for the perfect finish to our new entertainment system
  • I like the height and finish of these speaker stands, but they are in need of improvement

  • The finish and look of these things are fantastic for the price.
  • The finish is also really good on these... very happy with my purchase so far

Reviews around assembly (4.17 of 5)

  • However when I started reading reviews about the assembly and splitting of the stand I began to wonder what is so different, because I don't recall my 24" assembly being any problem
  • Assembly was easy, as I first read and then followed the instructions
  • However, assembly was fast and easy even with a standard screwdriver.
  • The perfect height for my bookshelf speakers, easy assembly with just a Phillips head screwdriver, and they look great
  • Assembly is easy - just turn some screws (Phillips head) and in about 10-20 minutes you will have a pair of speaker stands

Reviews around quality (3.90 of 5)

  • That's fine, it makes for a tight structure, but due to the poor quality of material, the right pillar on BOTH speaker stands cracked in the exact same place.
  • I don't think these are made out of actual wood, but the quality and look of the stands is very good for the price
  • The stands are of decent quality in line with the price.
  • If your speakers are going to be resting on the plate, this wont work as they will be resting on their own wire
  • They are nothing fancy but they are good quality and serve their purpose!

Reviews around speaker (3.79 of 5)

  • If you want cheap speaker stands - these are the ones to buy
  • Purchased these stands to support book shelf speakers and they work great.
  • The stand fell over, cracking speaker on the table next to it
  • And it isolates the speaker so the stand functions as intended
  • Lastly, there is no way provided to secure the speaker to the top of the stand

Reviews around putt (1.80 of 5)

  • Descent stands, however, as another reviewer did, I split the wood on one of them while putting in the screws.
  • even weeks looking for the best deal and these are it just buy and trust me u wont be disapointed and by the way the only way they crack are if u are an idiot and do not know how to use a screw driver simple installation and remarkable value!!!!
  • They were the right height for rear surround and I personally did not have any issues with the wood cracking while putting the screws in
  • I would recommend putting some kind of filler on the threads of the screws as the holes area a little loose, this would probably prevent the screws from backing out over time
  • The manufactured wood splits very easily when putting in screws

Reviews around particle (1.80 of 5)

  • These stands live in my dark media room so looks don't bother me as long as it's matte black, and these work perfect for my purpose
  • Very poor materials (Super cheap particle board).
  • And with it being made of cheap particle board it split as soon as the screws were turned
  • If your speakers are going to be resting on the plate, this wont work as they will be resting on their own wire
  • It's very dense, and quite substantial, much more so than cheap laminate particle board

Reviews around split issue (1.54 of 5)

  • I'm convinced that other reviewers who have experienced splitting issues with the composite wood upright are not properly lining up the fasteners before tightening.
  • I read the reviews prior to purchasing these stands and was aware of the wood splitting issue.
  • I experienced the wood-split issue mentioned by others (wood splits in the two vertical pieces near the base and top plate) in the first two pairs, but came up with a solution to avoid it with the 3rd pair.
  • CONCLUSIONI gave these stands 5 stars despite the wood-split issue because the problem does not affect the stand's performance.
  • even weeks looking for the best deal and these are it just buy and trust me u wont be disapointed and by the way the only way they crack are if u are an idiot and do not know how to use a screw driver simple installation and remarkable value!!!!

  • And with it being made of cheap particle board it split as soon as the screws were turned
  • It's very dense, and quite substantial, much more so than cheap laminate particle board
  • When you feel or see the first contact of both boards that you are screwing together - STOP - or you will split the boards
  • These stands live in my dark media room so looks don't bother me as long as it's matte black, and these work perfect for my purpose
  • I saw all these complaints about splitting the particle board and knew right away people were whipping out the chordless screwdrivers and over-driving the screws

Reviews around wood (1.38 of 5)

  • If you want something made of solid wood, you'll end up paying much more.
  • I split the wood on both trying to line up the parts and screw them together
  • Descent stands, however, as another reviewer did, I split the wood on one of them while putting in the screws.
  • Be careful in putting these together as the wood may seem to split if the screws are not straightly aligned from the hole
  • It is not that easy to assemble, you have to be careful not to split the wood.

Reviews around floor (1.00 of 5)

  • You don't have to use the foot pins if you have hard wood floors.
  • If one is putting the stand on a hard floor, the speaker wire will have to be placed on top of the base and into the covered pole.
  • I put some small rubber pads on the bottom since I was concerned that the spikes, although rather dull tip plastic, would damage my wood floor.
  • : I did not install any of the provided carpet spikes on stand bases, as they are on a hard floor
