Speaker/Stand Screw In Thingies

Hi gang! I have an older pair of B&W’s that have these 4 screw holes on the bottom. Once I had a pair of stands that had matching holes. I was able to screw the speakers to the stand to keep them more secure.

I’m looking to buy another pair of stands and I’m having a hard time finding these holes. Is there a search term that I should use or something?

Handyman solution would be to find stand with needed / wide enough base on stand.
Few measurements and little drilling = done. Perfect fit.

E: Zeos solution would be Blu-tack.

maybe “speaker stands with b&w (name of speaker here) mounting plate” :man_shrugging:

you could also put isolation feet in the holes, then just set it on a stand. if you get isolation feet with rubber bottoms, it wont move unless hit pretty hard.

edit: but honestly find one large enough and just drill holes as madgman suggested. easy peasy

Try prong-t nuts Or something similar from there…

Also, i cut a piece of wood to the size i wanted for one of my stands, screwed and glued it to the top, sprayed the whole thing with rubber coating and then to top it off use my bench cookies as speaker feet. This seems to be pretty solid. Unless you have young kids in the house, then nothing is safe so stop trying…:crazy_face:

Lots of good advice in this thread but this is the best! And that’s exactly why I was trying to do this!!:joy::joy:

For the 1.25 people who are still following, I ended up doing this:

Then I poured 3 containers of BB’s into the bases of the stand to weight it down so it’s less likely to tip over.

Anybody want to guess how long it take pour exactly 18,000 BB’s into a tube with only 3 BB sized openings?

Handyman solution for the win.

Brilliant, are you happy with the BB weight and density? Was it worth the effort?

I did not think of that🤔 almost tempted to drill a half inch hole in the side of the tubes and poor through there…

Thanks for asking!! It was worth the effort, they would have been top heavy without and my 8 year old will spend time near this area. She’s a bit like the Tazmanian devil from Road Runner- all constant motion and energy.

Lead shot would have been better, but this will work fine. Next time I’ll go to my local gun shop instead, lol.
