Yeah, fill them with sand and shot and you will need a fork lift to move them.
Working with Sound Anchors to investigate purchasing a pair of their Signature Stands for my use. The speakers weigh 105 lbs. The stands will probably weigh well over 100 lbs. They told me FedEx now goes up to 160 lbs.
Another satisfied Sound Anchors customer here. I have two sets of SA speaker stands--a 3-leg stand for my Spendor SP-100s and a 4-leg stand (actually more like a platform since they're only 5" high) for my homemade high-efficiency speakers. In each case the stands were transformative as Duster says, and in fact I would agree with Duster's description word for word. SA stands are not cheap but they are well worth the investment if you want to get the best out of your speakers.
I never regretted buying Sound Anchors custom-tuned for B&W Matrix 805s. More than just a tweak; a fundamental change in presentation. A rock-solid focused soundstage, without tonal coloration, with a cleaner if not more coherent treble, and a firmer bottom-end for the Kevlar driver.
BTW, I've evaluated dozens of pads for the purpose, and the best interface between the bottom of the enclosure and the three top pillars of the stand, is a tripod set of 40mm x 10mm Carbon Fiber Discs with 40mm Herbie's Audio Lab Thin grungebuster Dots (black version, with optional adhesive backing) adhered to both the top and the bottom of the discs. The recipe can be found in the AA archives.
I'm considering use of a 50mm x 20mm disc, but it will raise the 24" Sound Anchors speaker stands even higher than the 10mm thick disc, which may or may not be a good thing to expand the soundstage/imaging, while providing an even greater resonance dissipation and vibration wave blocking function. Ear level alignment is less important than how the loudspeakers actually project the soundstage into the room, since I don't always listen to the loudspeaker system on-axis.
