Default DIY Speaker Stands. Please post!

Considering this is the DIY loudspeaker forum and so many of you like building as much of your audio system as possible, I'm certain there are some nice speaker stands hiding out there!

So, the question is: Would anyone like to post theirs and give me some ideas?

Thanks guys!

Altho I havent really built any stands, im sure that anything solid and well damped will suffice. Ie a mdf box filled with concrete or something along those lines. Just go for anything that you find attractive that can be made solid. Remember you dont want the thing to ring!

Here is something:
Click the image to open in full size.

Small speakers: 70mm schedule XXS seamless stainless steel construction process pipe (like used in chemical plants and refineries)

I wanted to fill them up with sand but they are already sooo heavy that I didn't. The cables are running through a 3/4 inch inner tube and the filter is in the footing of th stand. The loudspeaker is spiked to the top platform and is fastened with a spike tensioning system (patent pending )

The larger loudspeaker is actually standing on the stands of my rear speakers because they have not been build yet. It consist of 3 pcs 1.5" steel tubes with a threaded rod inside. If yiu take the top platform thick enoug (30mm) you can use brass plugs so the rods do not stick through te top platform.

Indoubt, that's exactly what I was looking for. Those are some beautiful stands; wish I could find that SS process pipe around here!

Anyone else want to show off their stuff?

wow, exactly what I hoped to see as well!!!

Those are some very good and professional looking stands! I also like the id of the filter in the foot of the stand.

Maybe a bit off topic, but is that the clofis GV1 at the right? WHat do you think of that speaker - honestly!

It is something based on the Clovis GV1. I liked the units and the woodwork of the GV1.

I wanted to make it in solid 30mm wood but the wood was to damn hard to saw with my 700w machine.

I improved on the original design. Biggest change is in the filter wich is now a serial filter. The serial filter improves the sound dramatically in this case, don't underestimate it.

Filters are inspired on the serials filters of the DD8 from Tony Gee and he helped with the measurements as wel

I also made a slanted design, changed the BR to front, reduced the net volume to 14,5 liter and mad a separerate chamber for the tweeter.

It sounds marvelous! , It was a lot of work but it was worth it.

Joseph audio has also used the bass unit in its original RM7 and they were considered much better than the B&W 905

TNT-audio.com has a great little DIY section. Here is the classic "Stubby" stand page, including how it got its name. (Hint, it ain't because of the height!)

Indoubt,

It seems that you made the speaker I always wanted! Great drivers, slanted front, front BR, perfect size...

I'll better email you one of these days for some more info. If I'm right, you already talked to rho about these speakers.

Online Metals sells stainless and aluminum pipe in up to 6" diameters.

I don't know what the finish is like.
