Hi, I have a new pair of C7's since last week. Yes, what stands? Read a lot about it and do not know where to go.
Well I thought I'll tryout a pair of cheap solid wooden stools from IKEA. Model is ODDVAR and they are 33x33x45 cm. They are fairly lightweight, solid pinewood, but can be assembled very rigidly. I experimented a few days and in the end, all was assembled as rigidly as possible.
Put some filt rounds under the legs to protect the floor and.... put 4 little balls of Pritt Buddies underneith each corner of the speakerbox. (Pritt Buddies is like Blu Tack, only friendlier to use without doing dammage to surfaces)
Now I can hear the speakers breathe and they sound with ease, clear and pointed.
Really worth a try for totally less than 20 euros. Rgds Han
