Hiding cables running down from monitor stands?

Hi all,

Anyone have suggestions for the best way to hide speaker and power cables coming out of Focal Twins sitting on Sound Anchor stands? Trying to figure out the best way to have them running down the stands to the floor without being seen. Once they're at floor level I'm not concerned about them.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you for your response!

The products you linked to seem to be more for concealing cables on the floor rather than the back of monitor stands, though...

You can attach the Panduit surface raceway to the stands. Panduit and others also make a variety of self-adhesive anchors that can be used to attach zip-ties. You could stick these on the back of the stand posts and zip-tie the cables to them.

Split loom tubing and black zip ties? Or just the zip ties, even, if the cables are black already. It's not a complete concealment, but if done neatly this sort of thing can visually blend in quite effectively.

I use these zip tie sticky pads all over the place:

Adhesive Backed Nylon Cable Tie & Zip Tie Mounts.

You just stick a couple down the back of the stand and loop a zip tie through each one. They're great for tricky cable runs.

Liking the self-adhesive anchors. Had no idea they existed. Thanks everyone!

Not at all. The products suggested by Mr. Bethel are made for exactly the kind of situation you are describing.

Those self-stick zip-tie anchors are great for making your cables neat along with zip ties. Here is a nice kit including the zip-ties and the anchors.

If you use these make sure you clean the area before attaching the pads (alcohol works GREAT). Also the pads DO NOT STICK well to wood without some type of sealer or paint. Just some suggestions. Best of luck!
