should also avoid putting them into enclosed spaces, such as under desks with side panels, as this creates a resonant system that can further mess with bass clarity and evenness. Also be aware that you need to maintain a minimum distance between the cabinet and walls when positioning both rear–ported subwoofers and speakers. Details of how far this needs to be should be included in your speaker or sub’s manual.
The heavier the stand, the less it will move, and with many hi–fi and pro–audio speaker stands (including many of the models made by Atacama, for example), it’s possible to fill the hollow support column with a heavy material to add mass and to damp resonances. This could be sand, shot or any other heavy but well–damped material.
Furthermore, in accordance with Newton’s third law of motion (each action has an equal and opposite reaction), whenever the speaker cone moves in one direction it will try to push the speaker cabinet the other way.
