My very friendly and generous South-Philly co-worker AnnaMaria bought herself a surround sound system for Christmas. It didn’t work out in her living, so she returned it, but she was unable to return the assembled stands she bought for her speakers.
Our system came with front stands that we co-opted for rear stands; our front speakers have always sat on our front window sills. However, due to the recent parlor-reorg, the speakers are now being a bit obscured.
I volunteered to take the stands off of AnnaMaria’s hands, thinking that we’d use them for our fronts (and maybe the rears too). However, once she brought them over i realized that their system of being screwed on isn’t compatible with the screw-holes on the back of my speakers (thumb included for sense of dimension).
Now, you might have never done a shop-call with me, so let me explain to you that i’m hardly shy about doing things with tools and powered drills and custom-cut bits of wood. However, i am mightily shy when it comes to doing such things to things i own and rent.
So the question i pose is – how would you mount my speakers onto AnnaMaria’s stands? If it isn’t possible i am going to put the stands on Craigslist on her behalf, but i’d prefer to keep them.
So far the only idea i have is that they can be held on by a single screw through the top hole on the speaker through the top hole on the flat side post, which would be the only way that would provide stability. Not ideal, but at least they’d be used.
If you figure something out, please email me at uprush dot org, to the address krisis (or, if reading on LJ, just comment on the CK-feed).
