Making sure your home audio speakers are placed in exactly the right location, and at the correct height for your space, is one of the last items on the home theater checklist — but it’s a very important step. First, you want your room to look just the way you envisioned, from top to bottom, and that includes speaker placement. There are a few things to consider as you choose the best speaker stands for you. Space evaluation is a good place to start. Consider the size of your home theater or living room. Is it an open space that will require floor speakers? If so, you’ll want to incorporate floor speaker stands into your design. Or, will you utilize a shelving system that can accommodate bookshelf speaker stands? Maybe you’re planning to add wall speakers. If that’s the case, you’ll want to shop our assortment of speaker wall mounts. Whatever configuration you choose, you’ll find a wide variety of styles and designs that look great with your décor. But looks aren’t everything. Be sure to choose a set of stands that can support the weight of your speakers before making a purchase. Another consideration is how you’ll connect your system. More and more people are choosing wireless speakers these days. But, if you’re going with a wired set up, you’ll want the appropriate length of speaker cable available before you get started. Don’t forget to measure the distance to your rear speaker stands to ensure you have enough cable ready.
Improving your audio experience with speaker floor stands.
Of course, speaker stands provide so much more to your audio experience than good looks. If you choose the right product for your room and setup, home theater speaker stands can improve your audio quality a great deal. First, surround sound speaker stands allow you to place your speakers in the perfect position in your room. Then, you can select the optimal height, which is especially important for the side speakers in a surround sound system. But more than that, speaker stands reduce the vibration that can happen between the speaker and the floor, the wall, or furniture if the speaker is placed directly on that surface. When a speaker is mounted on a compatible stand, the sound distribution from your home theater receiver is more crisp, clear, and free of distortion. Another note about distribution and power: if you have a moderately sized room, or larger home theater, consider adding a power amplifier. By adding an amp, you’ll be able to drive enough power to all your speakers, including the floor, side, ceiling, and even to the rear speakers.
