    Default Ordered some new stands


    http://www.amazon.com/Definitive-Tec.../dp/B00170IOAK

    Got these, which are made for my ProCinema 1000's, to replace these

    http://www.amazon.com/Sanus-Systems-...6814258&sr=1-1

    The Sanus are nice, but being wood and the way the fight together, my DefTech speakers tend to jump (planar woofer) and rattle these things. Maybe the DefTech specifics will work better.

    Should have the ProStand here tomorrow (gotta love Amazon Prime).

    You should use Blue-Tak or Velcro to keep the speakers from rattling. IMO

    Well, there is two problems:

    1) The base is not flat (it can't just sit down), and the plastic legs they come with are not very good. Using some pad on the legs, between them and the bottom of the speaker, worked, and I made some indention's on the stand with a drill bit. This kept the speakers from walking.

    2) With all that fixed, the stand it self rattles. Part of it could be corrected, most likely by taking it apart and putting it back together with adhesive, but the wire cover also rattles, and no real fixing this.

    I'm hoping this metal stand, and it being designed for them, will help. Also, being able to bottom mount to the stand, instead of having the speakers sit on their add-on feet, will be nice. The earlier stands I had, and shoulda kept, screwed to the back and kept them suspended in the air, which worked perfectly.

    I have the Sanus stands for my rears. The lack of bass in the rears keeps them on just fine.

    Yeah, when the ProCinema 1000's get some bass, they are like a jumping bean.

    Try placing a one inch felt self-adhesive circle under each leg of your speakers. This should help reduce your speakers from vibrating and walking.

    Tried something like that. These new stands should not have that problem, with the bottom mount.

    This is the stand I bought. All metal and bolted together. Well made and does not vibrate.




    Hope everything goes well for you elwaylite.

    Thanks. I'm hoping since these stands are all metal, and made for these speakers, it'll fix my issue.

    They are nice stands, I just think they'd be better with a speaker with less bass. The planar woofer on these gets it bouncing. Also, the Def Tech 3 legged base it has to mount on is not very good, so they would be better mounted on a stand fromt he back, or bottom, without using the feet.

    If the inside of the uprights are hollow I would suggest filling them with Silica sand for both added stability and resonance dampening I did the with my Mirage stands when I was using them it made a difference.

    It's tight, but something to consider.

    Shoulda bought these stands in the first place. Well built metal, goes together tightly, and the top of the stand, where the speaker screws down, is felt covered.

    There is a lot to be said for Manufactures designated stands, their designed to do the job right and usually compliment to appearance of the speakers, as those do.

    Yeah, I was actually skeptical and figured I was getting less for more, shoulda known better considering the company. These will not be jumping or rattling.

    Got em setup, actually used this opportunity to move them out further. Got em angled in and ran Audyssey again. Always cool how closely it measures distance to the center point.
