    Saw this on YouTube a while back and decided to make a pair. Just need to add the pads to the top and bottom of the bases.

    In hindsight, I probably should've bought a set of Auralex knockoffs from Amazon ($21.85) but it got me outside enjoying the sunshine for a bit. $20.21 total investment.

    That works.
    I have the Ultimate Support MS-90/36 stands. They have compartments on the interior of the pole that allow you to do some cord management, and a large one that allows you to fill it with sand or lead shot to dampen vibrations.

    What's the parts list on the above project? I don't recognize the green things?

    Let me see if I can find the YouTube video...


    All of the stuff was available for me at Lowe’s. Those green things are drain traps used for lawns.

    Thanks. My gut said they looked like something like that but I've never seen them at Home Depot or Lowes. :)

    I hadn't either. I had to look around for quite a while to find them.

    They are in the area that has yard and ditch drainage supplies. Usually near plumbing. Too bad they weren’t black already

    The less contact area between your monitors and whatever you're putting it on top, the less sound transfer, the better!

    So for me, I just used dome shaped rubber foot pads. The tabletop where the speakers were on had just the right height anyway.

    Do you have a link to the Auralex knockoffs from amazon or can you tell me exactly what to type in to find them for $21.85?
