  • Onix Speaker Stands - Satin Black or Piano Black

    Now let me 1st state that I TRULY mean the following as a consumer and NOT as a salesman...

    Personally, I have not seen anything I like as much as these. They are heavy, 100% solid MDF and sturdy. They also come with brass spikes, not pictured.

    Rough measurements are as follows: 25" High. Bottom Base is 1-1/2" thick! and measures 12-1/2"x16-1/2". Top speaker platform is 8"x9".

    Prices: $290.00 Satin Black & $420.00 Piano Black

      Tim,

      I believe yours is piano black, right?

      Take some pictures once you got them please.

        They sure are. The Fedex man should be here this afternoon. I'll take some pics and post them as soon as I can, but we have some family coming in to visit for a couple of days, so I may be scrambling for time to put them together and post the pics.

                        man those are sexy. If I wasn't so in love with my floorstanding planars I'd go back to some nice bookshelves....

                          :saywhat: I have no idea how I missed it, but this has to be the worst example of speaker placement I have ever seen! Those things are way to close together to image fer****, and talk about horrible WAF! They are in the middle of the entry way practically blocking the door!

                          Anyway, the stands look nice. Are they hollow/sand fill-able, or is the curvy neck solid MDF?

                            Tim needs to post newer pictures. ;) :)

                            Matt,

                            Believe it or not, I have not opened one single box to see if they are sand fill-able. They are pretty heavy as is already, close to 30lbs each.

                            May be one of the guys will check and post here soon.

                              Lol, my wife is starting to get used to having speakers, parts of speakers, and other miscellaneous gear laying in random places around the house since I took this new gig. However, I'm quite sure if I brought down an amp and decided to hook them up there for listening, we'd have "words."

                              I do need to take some new pictures, and I will do so at some point, but I left our good camera at my wife's sister's house in Richmond over the holidays and my Droid just doesn't do that great with glamour shots.

                              The stands are NOT sand fillable. The support column is closed up, and heavy enough that I don't guess there's much room in the middle anyhow. It could be a solid chunk, but I can't tell for sure. Most of the weight, however, is in the bases, which seem a little too heavy to just be a solid block of wood. Maybe its HDF instead of MDF or something, or maybe there's a piece of steel sandwiched in the middle. Either way, the stands are VERY solid, weighing in at nearly 30 pounds each as Hugh said, and I'd guess 18 or so pounds of that is the base. You'd have to push them most of the way to the ground in order for them to fall over. Also, they come with spikes, so on carpet they're pretty well anchored as well as isolated.

                              As you can see from Derek's pictures there are two bolts that screw into threaded inserts in the top of the support column holding that top on, and four such bolts holding the bottom on. An allen wrench of the correct size is included. I had them put together in about 15 minutes and they feel very sturdy as the bolts can be tightened down really well. I've not had nice stands before, but I'm quite impressed by these. About the only thing that could make everything seem more secure would be if there were threaded inserts in the bottom of the speakers and holes in the platform of the stands, allowing the speakers to actually be attached. As it is, I could never accidentally knock those stands over, but I could theoretically knock the speakers off if I have a severe enough bout of clumsiness.

                              On that note, anybody have any recommendations on something I could put between the stands and speakers that would protect both surfaces, as well as provide some traction? I can use pieces of cotton sock, but that piano finish is polished to the point of slippery. :thumbsup:
