    im buying some acoustic energy evo 1's as rear speakers and will be using them with stands.
    how would i attach the speakers to the stands?
    at my local superfi they told me to just put them on top and nothing else, but i have a 1 1/2 year old and dont want to take any chances.
    can anyone help?

    I would use 4 blobs of blu-tac in each corner of the top plate of the stands. This will keep the speakers as secure as is necessary.

    Blu tack ruins the wood veneer, also if a kid pulls on the speaker cable the blu tack won't hold.

    I'd probably proper rear surrounds and mount them on the wall, they have own fittings so fit pretty flush. And at least at head height or over head height.

    Idiots.

    another vote for blu-tac - I found it better accoustically than spikes, or fixing any other way

    A friend of had his Quads on spikes on stands .. needless to say, one fell off after someone lent on them slightly and it broke the terminals at the back :thumbsdow

    I am also using blu-tac, even the wildest swings won't detach the speaker.
    I actually have wood veneer :rolleyes: I hope it's still fine, I have read that blu-tac won't ruin it :confused: Anyway, it is on the bottom, four blobs in the corners, so not visible at all and there where any other "support device" (couldn't think of a better term :rolleyes:).

    If the blu-tac is cold it has been known to take the veneer off the speaker when seperating the speaker and stand :(

    If it is warmer it should just peel off with no problems :) I'm no blu-tac expert or anything .. I just read it somewhere :rolleyes:

    :D
