Welcome! Need support, you got it. Or share your ideas and experiences.
Thanks for the thought. The factory stands might have been sufficient but, now that I've listened to them for awhile, I want something that lifts and/or tilts them, so that they don't sound like someone threw a blanket over them when I stand up.
A pic from 2003, these raised the MMG's 7" from the floor. We bought two large shelf brackets a 3 foot length of flat metal bar that matched the width of the shelf bracket, drilled holes in the bracket to match the mounting holes for the original stands. Cut and attached the flat bar to extend the feet out front for stability. Hit with some flat black spray paint. Total cost was about $20 as I remember, and total time invested was about an hour and a half. This completely changed the character of the speakers, in a good way. The low end was supplemented with a sub.
Clever. Thanks. How did you attach the flat bar? Screws? Glue?
We bolted them on, and put a stick on plastic foot on the front of the bar to level them out. The nuts were on the back part of the stand so didn't show from the front. These were used on carpet so they worked fine, on a bare floor maybe not so much...
"on a bare floor maybe not so much..."
Exsctly why I asked. I appreciate you including photos. That's going beyond what I expected.
And the idea may still work for me. I could attach the shelf brackets to my ski's. They're wood, so I could countersink the screw heads, and I've already got the felt pads on the bottoms.
