Speaker positioning is critical when it comes to creating the ideal soundscape. KEF Performance Speaker Stands were engineered in the UK specifically to ensure bookshelf speakers sound at their best. This encompasses ideal driver height positioning, steel damping plates accompanied by aluminium tube and base plates, and space available for the addition of inert filler for further stability. The Performance Speaker Stand is ideal for the LS50 and LS50 Wireless, but can also be utilised by other KEF Bookshelf Speakers.
Centre Channel speakers require dedicated stands as they tend to be of unconventional dimensions. The CC Series provides that solution and are available in a wide range of height options.
And stands do more than combatting early reflections. They also provide what’s called decoupling between your speakers and the floor (which is also known as mechanical isolation). We will let Otto describe their construction: “Take your typical Dynaudio Stand; you have feet with either spikes for solid floors or rubber for wooden ones at the bottom. Then you have a base plate that manages vibrations. Also, large base plates with feet far apart are more stable, making it harder for the speakers to fall over.
