Quality, Performance, and Style Meet Affordability
With Basic Foundations, Sanus proves that an affordable loudspeaker stand can offer real quality, performance, and style. Because of Sanus' commitment to the union of form and function, Basic Foundations are among the first wood loudspeaker supports to combine furniture-grade appearance and upscale performance at a reasonable price.
Graceful Styling, Strong Support
Twin contoured pillars aligned in a "V" configuration support speakers in style, offer superior rigidity, and provide cable management. A snap-in curved black cover holds speaker cables in place and hides them from both front and back view. The softly curved black base adds to the strong yet graceful appearance.
Basic Foundations are constructed of MDF (medium density fibercore), which is the same material that most of the finest speakers in the world use. Although significantly more expensive that plywood and particle board, MDF offers superior strength and immunity from resonance. Force-fit floor spikes further minimize resonance and provide stability in carpeting. Sanus' special triangular isolation pads are placed on the top plate for speaker protection and acoustic isolation.

|Theres a difference between affordable and cheap|
and these are cheap. ABS spikes are fine in principle, but the dont fit in the pre-drilled holes for them. You have to hand-turn the wood screws or the MDF will split. The entire edifice feels like it was made to support the listed weight, and not a tenth of an ounce more, in order to protect a profit margin. Ive assembled other MDF furniture before but never been warned that I couldnt use a power driver without breaking it. For the price theyre OK but when I can afford better, these go in the dumpster.

|good except for floor spikes|
screw into the holes a bit and then remove. From there its still blind but that does make it easier. the force fed spikes are very difficult to put in. I gave up on that. the directions show threads on them but there isnt any on mine. still its a solid product and visually appealing. the wood appears to be good quality. for 50 bucks I think its worth it.

|Very Nice Product - recommended|
Arrived today, I put them together without power tools in about 20 minutes and viola, nice speaker stands; I have read some reviews with complaints about the wood splitting, but I did not have that problem at all; seem pretty well made for $40/pair; Nice floor spikes also, not the kind that will easily injure someone.

|Avoid - flawed product|
I got these tonight, easy to put together. Problem is, and I hand tightened them, the screws are a bit too large, and the MDF center column pieces split from the screws. I might live with it, but should I have to? Product is cheap, in more ways than one.
