    Energy Take Classic Speaker Stands

    Just bought the Energy Take Classic speakers but need a couple of good speaker stands for the front speakers. Has anyone got any good recommendations?

    Non resonant, heavy and rigid with spikes. They should be tall enough to get the tweeters to ear height when seated.

    Here is a very good set of speakerstands that you wont find at a better price anywhere. I have a pair and others have then as well. They sell for $99 and they are steel.

    There is no specific speaker stands that you need. Just follow Joe's advice and you'll do fine.

    Do take some measurements from ear level at your listening position, subtract the distance from the center of the tweeter to the speaker bottom, and go for a stand that's pretty close to that measurement. It's not an exact science. A few inches either way works.

    No way I would ever buy stands after discovering the "DIY TNT Stubby". Filled with 20 lbs of sand these things are rock solid and fully meet the WAF cosmetically. Nice thing is that you can make them to exactly fit your speaker and have the tweeter at your ear level.

    They are incredibly simple and cheap to build.
