If you already have a pair of simple foam speaker platforms, you can improve their performance simply by gluing a heavy floor tile to the top. Ordinary contact adhesive works fine for this. Then you can either glue some kitchen mat to the upper surface, to provide some grip, or use Blu–Tack, as discussed earlier, between the tile and the loudspeaker.
The stand features a simple and elegant style that allows it to blend in neatly into the décor of any home. An integrated cable management system allows myriad cables to be hidden away within the stands to create a clean look, which is ideal for bookshelf speakers that are connected to a wide range of audio sources.
Of course, you do still need to attend to room reflections by adding some basic acoustic treatment — but that’s another subject and one that we have covered on numerous occasions in our Studio SOS series.
