Ok me not being a mathematical genius I am trying to understand the logic of these stands. If as suggested by many people that the rears or sat 3s should be 2 to 3 feet above your ear level how are these stands going to help when they are only 33 and a bit inches high and the speaker is 12 inches. Even if the speaker was bottom mounted that would then take it to 45 and a bit approx 33 inches below the recommended height. ???? Am i missing something here please advise.
Thanks

Yes, you're missing something :) .

The stands were designed for FRONT left/right mains use, to position the tweeters at ear level. Although they can certainly be used for surrounds, this is not what they were designed for ... at trade show exhibits we typically place the stand on top of a two foot tall pedestal for surround/rear use.

Thank you for your reply - never even thought of them being used as fronts. Doh. Can you then please advise if their is a rear stand for these.As i live in a rented villa and dont really want to be drilling experimental holes all over the place to get the placement right. If no stand then what would be your advice for optimal placement ie. distance apart,height above center position and any other advice to this to get it right first time will be much appreciated. Center listening position is just over 8 feet. Thanks

There is a Sanus stand, model# EF-SATB, that works and will allow more total height - they attach to the speaker's 1/4-20 insert using a L-bracket and hardware supplied with the stand.
