Frequently asked questions
Are any modifications required to the speakers? No Mye Sound stand designs require any drilling, using only stock fastening locations (3.3 to 3.7i, 20 series and others) wherever possible, clamps (1.6, 1.7/i and a few others) otherwise. On special request I will offer a drill in top attachment for those who do not want clamps (1.6, 1.7/i, IIIA, etc).
How and why do the stands work? An entirely new, much heavier welded base is provided, along with struts which fasten about 2/3 up the rear of the panel stiffening the entire assembly. They are also supplied with CNC machined threaded brass points which stabilize the panels, allowing the panels to realize their full potential.
What are the stands made of? The bases are made of (heavier than industry standard) 0.100" thick 2 x 1" steel tubing. All end caps are welded steel (no plastic plugs here) and ground/filed smooth (LOTS of work!). The struts are made from 1 x 1 x 1/8" thick 6061 "aircraft grade" aluminum tubing.
What processes do the stands go through? Fabrication (includes CNC router cutting, CNC lathe for points, sawing, drilling, tapping, welding, etc...), then final hand filing/sanding on noses, powder coating, packaging and finally shipping.
What is a stealth model, and how does it differ from the standard model? The stealth model places the entire base behind the panel. Because of this the customer must supply and fix weight to the rear of the base to stabilize the stand/speaker assembly. Some are willing to live with this small inconvenience, others not. Because of the additional weight, heavier duty points are included on 1 series and up models. The sound from either model is the same, as is the price.
Why is delivery from 3-6 weeks? See 2 lines above; there are many stages to these stands. I have tried to keep stock on the 3.3 to 3.7i stands, but unfortunately I can't ever do so. Due to the fact that I offer multiple models and a number of color choices, it's impossible for me to start stocking units not knowing what color the next customers may want. Pretty much guaranteed if I somehow got caught up enough to stock a pair of texture black 3.7i stands (by far my best selling), I'd sell nothing but almond 1.6 stands.
What do you recommend for fill material? For those who feel the need, on the struts only I recommend pouring in Repti-sand (aquarium sand, pet stores) or filtered sand. Better yet, use an aquarium sand by the tweeters and playground sand by the woofers. Let it settle naturally over time and add more if required. The bases in my opinion do not require filling (and are difficult to do so, but I can provide instructions).
Can I tilt the speakers and stands? Yes, the points are threaded. Threading the back in and front out allows rear tilt (and vice-versa).
