Re: Sunfire CRM-2 Speakers

Thanks for the candid responses. It wasn't what I wanted to hear, but you're both right...the stands are just way too short since my ear level is at 36".

I don't know, I've been looking for an alternative to the OEM stands for the past couple of months and have fallen short. There's not too many stands out there with the L mount or mounting screw on the bottom plate. Plus, I'm worried about them falling over due to the dog...so something heavy is paramount.

I'll keep searching, or maybe I'll go in debt like the rest of the country and buy the OEM stands. There's just really no point in buying a short stand if it has a negative effect on $1600 speakers.

Thanks again. Greatly appreciated!

You could build a 10" high box filled with sand/bricks/lead shot, and bolt the speaker stands to it...just a thought.(obviously I'm talking about the 30" stands)

TORO3, Here is a safe method using the SANUS EFSAT'S and I waited to put it to the test but its a small cosmetic issue that may bother some but still (Not so bad)...

Put a 5 pound weight at the base! Just go to your local sports shop and pick up a set 5 or 10 pound Black weights! and if you have the sliding issue put some clamps there to hold it from Home Depot and bypass the crappy tiny screw pin that adjust the height. Measure the ribbon so the middle is 41 inches from the floor and you will be good to go!!! I have 5 pounds but with a big Dog you should go with 10 pounds to be safe :D

Very nice, Scarebeo!

That's def. a smart and cheap solution. During a break, I did a quick search for speaker stands and found that they make a 34" Sanus speaker stand, which can be found here:

http://www.audio-video-furniture.com/Sa ... -Stand.htm

My seating position is a little lower than "normal" seating positions, which makes these a likely candidate. Depending on finances, I'll either go with your solution or the 34" stands I just found.

Whether or not I came across as a little bitch...I thank you for all of your help. Much appreciated, man!

Thanks a ton, Scarebeo. You've helped me a lot since I arrived on this forum -- greatly appreciated!

I'm looking forward to pictures of the OEM stands in your system. I'm jealous that you were able to get those stands (and CRS3s) at a good price.

Purchased these some time ago for center channel speakers. http://www.csnstores.com/asp/show_detail.asp?sku=PT0006

Have them filled with small granite rocks and they would still be dangerous if I had a toddler crawling around. Fine without little ones. My bases are a couple of inches smaller than yours and my CC speakers are probably twice as tall as the CRM-2's. Just food for thought.

I tried them out & they are "amazing" but I didn't have the necessary sub (yet). They do need a sub.

Frank.
This is a "OLD" post but did you ever get a Sub for the CMR-2's? What did you get if so? I was just listening to my set and looking at the forum and seen this and Hoping you got this squared away long ago and got the fullness of those speakers.
