Adam A77X Speaker Stands

What do you guy's use for big size monitors like the Adam A77X. I'm looking for something heavy duty. I would like to purchase or build them myself if possible.


Thanks denlig

Thanks,

I looked at these stands but thought they looked flimsy. I think i will grab a pair. I for sure will not be paying $600 plus for a pair of sound anchors stands. I seen pic of your studio with the A77X on the stands and they look nice. I so love my adams. May i ask what measurement is your speakers from your mix position ?

You could checkout the ultimate support stands and fill them with lead shot (or sand):

Ultimate Support: Home

I have a previous incarnation of these, and while they are pretty light (but well built) once you fill them with lead shot they turn into pretty hefty stands. From the pics of the latest version, the internal channel for adding weight looks a bit smaller than mine (42" height). If I remember correctly, I think I was able to fill each of them with almost 2, 25lb bags of fairly small diameter lead shot.

+1 for the Sound Anchors. Be warned though, these things are heavy!

Why don't you make your own, filled with sand?

It's a good investment if you have some time to deal with it.

These seem to be used in quite a few studios lately.

Build your own. https://www.youtube.com/results?sear...peaker+stands+ Fun to do and you will hopefully learn some new skills and have a GREAT pair of speaker stands you can be proud of.

FWIW

RE: Speaker Stands

Hi,
I am the moderator for Adam Audio.
There are several excellent stands out there. The most robust are by Sound Anchors. They are solid and heavy and will withstand a nuclear blast!

K&M make very good stands.

Zoaer makes good stands.

The bottom line is a cheap stand that is not totally stable will hurt the stereo imaging and by moving even the slightest bit could cause cancellation at certain frequencies. Put you r hand on the stand and if it wiggles, do not buy it.

Also there are several accessories by Auralex, Prime Acoustics, and others that also help tighten up the bottom.
