RP-502s - screw to stand ?

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I've got a pair of RP-502S, each on a speaker stand. Now I'm thinking of screwing them to the stand for that extra secure feeling that they won't tip off. The stands have holes in the top-plate so it's possible to insert 2 screws from below. 

 

But, is that considered good practice ? If so, until how many millimeters is it save to drill a hole for the screw ? Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Years ago I used some stands and thought the same thing. I never had any problems with them moving no matter how they were played, as long as they don't get knocked off your good I would guess.

 

Welcome and have fun.

I wouldn't do it.

 

Also, the speakers should be turned 90 degrees facing you, not facing forward.

thanks! I've turned them (was still busy setting them up), maybe I'll leave them not screwed to the stand.

Lots of people screw their speakers to stands. A couple small holes in the bottom of the plate is better than the damage that might result in a fall. I've seen people strap their speakers down also. Is your stand heavy or does it accept fillers like sand?

You can't see it on the picture clearly, but there are actually 2 hollow pipes, a big one and a small one. The big one is where the cable runs through. Sand won't be a good idea there because it has a hole in the bottom - for the cable. But I was thinking to fill them with pebbles (small stones).
