    I need to put my castle satellites (rear speakers) on stands, any ideas please ?
    The dimensions for the speaker are-
    Height 200mm (8in.)
    Width 140mm (5.5in.)
    Depth 160mm (6.5in.)

    Another dumb question coming up !
    I've just received the stands and set them up so now the speakers are on the stands how do I make sure they don't get knocked off ? It seems a little worrying to have them sitting on top of there ready to fall off.

    In the USA, Blu-tack was hailed as a magical HiFi tweak. I've used it forever and it's the best way to keep the speakers on the stands but still allow you to remove them.

    Yes they slated the inferior green version saying it comes a distant second in performance to the blue version ;)
