You could just plonk your speaker onto the top of your chosen stand, of course, but it’s best to have the speaker fixed to the stand in some way, because otherwise it can slide around. One popular and effective method is to place blobs of Blu–Tack under each corner; this acts as both a removable adhesive and as a damping medium. Another alternative is to use high–friction rubber matting, of the type sold for workshops and kitchens.
One way to improve the situation is to add mass by means of a platform fixed to the top surface of the foam. Primacoustic do this in their Recoil Stabilizer by using a very thick steel slab with rubber matting on top, while Auralex and other companies use MDF topped with dense rubber on their more up–market platforms. IsoAcoustics take yet a different approach, by using a frame made from rigid components joined by resilient isolators.
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.
Five minutes per stand, and you are prepared to proceed. Usually, the rack has to be heavy responsibility and outfitted to safely support the speaker to produce the most of the vibration move to the standalone. Consider the living area where you will place the TV independently. Many TV racks also incorporate items like storage containers which may hold just a tiny center channel speaker. With all these options, it can be hard to ascertain which TV stick to really go for. Thus, all stands are flexible and are designed to set the speaker given the ear of someone in the seated posture. Or you may get adjustable speaker stands and discover the ideal sound you want without consuming much space.
