If you already have a speaker stand with spikes and your floor is made of wood, then you should consider putting some form of isolation platform between the speaker and the stand, to prevent the cabinet vibrations reaching the stand and, through it, the floor. Avoid flimsy stands that move or rock when you touch them. If the final assembly doesn’t feel completely solid, avoid it.
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.
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.
