Secure stand for 8351A

Secure stand for 8351A

Hi,

Is there a secure stand for the 8351A? I require a way to ensure the monitors cannot be knocked off their stand. I have in mind a domestic install in a living room. With children in the home the monitors would have to be secured somehow to their stands.

Are there any official Genelec stands that would work for me? Adding extra weight to the bottom plate of the stand is not a problem -- I do that now with some regular speaker stands which have two concrete blocks on them, ensuring the stands cannot be knocked over. I just want to ensure that the speaker itself cannot be knocked off the stand.

I look forward to suggestions. I know the 8351A has a number of mount points so I am hopeful there is some product out there!

Thanks,
Alastair

Well the mount and monitor can be knocked over :). Would wall mounts work in your case?
I just trust to isopod and have my speakers standing in bookshelfs

Yeah that looks like it would work. I could weigh down the base as I do at the moment.

Wall mounting is not my preferred solution, although I like the idea of a height adjustable stand better.

Any official Genelec stands that would work?

I think the stand is as official Genelec stand as they come. You may want to have look of this:

Genelec seems to have hidden it pretty well in their new "trendy" pages.

You can encumber | ballast the stands by filling up the tubes with quartz sand, I did. Solid enough encountering little and unwanted curiosity of up-and-comings with success. The vertical traction force of the speakers (by weight) does not require any additional safeguards | measures.

The shop linked above [to my knowledge] ships at least within the EU (no idea from where you are coming from).
