    I think i'm just about getting to the end of my quest for knowledge!
    I just need some suggestions on what to do with the left and right fronts sats. any speaker stands that immediately come to mind? i would have thought the speakers are too heavy for the alphasons they sell in argos?
    thanks again!

    There's a wallmount available from the dealers for £9.99 and if you want a floorstand, I would suggest looking at Vivanco or Omnimount.

    I got these From Index for my Premieres. Thet fit the 302's almost perfectly and are heavy & stable. Tube is even big enough to get 'Monster' speaker cables up, just about. HTH.

    My rear speakers are MS302's (the same as the Premiers) and I have them temporarily mounted on the cheap Alphasons from Argos. The speakers fit ok but........

    The stands are not very strong, especially the thread of pole where it mounts in the base. This combined with a bouncy dog leads me to believe that they won't last long.

    Not recommended. :thumbsdow

    p.s. they do not take spikes, which means that they are all wobbly on a carpet with a decent thickness of underlay.
