    Anyone know if its possible to get speakers stands that are no more than 10cm high!

    Sounds rediculous doesn't it, but I need them to support KEF TDM23F front speakers a-top a KEF45B sub.
    They would help reduce resonance and lift the main speakers to the correct height.
    As THX designs, the main speakers vertical dispersion pattern is very narrow, so the correct height is vital.

    If not available anywhere, anyone have any tips on how to construct something like this at home.

    Not sure if they're good enough quality for your application, but Richer Sounds do a pair of Gale speaker stands for about £20 which are the size you require.

    I've used them to good effect with a pair of Mission 753's.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the Richers tip, I'll pop in and ask.
    Although, I think I may have seen them but thought they were a bit taller than that.

    Jules,

    Yes, I'm afraid I mis-read cm for inches. Sorry.

    Not sure if you can cut them down.

    (While you go into Richer Sounds, I'll be in Specsavers!)

    How about an Auralex Gramma isolation platform. I've not measured mine, but think it should be around the 10cm height you're after.

    Details from Here or just do a 'google' on 'Auralex Gramma'

    Mark.

    Auralex MoPads would also fit the bill ;)

    You could try some Nordost Pulsar Points. They aren't that tall & sound great under speakers (plus they won't mark either). Otherwise RDC cones are good too.
