Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Steel cost a LOT more than wood and plastics

Steel costs a LOT more than 2 pieces of MDF boards and plastic columns.

If Target can make a healthy profit selling steel speaker stands that weigh over 68lbs (my Target MR28's weigh over 68lbs unfilled), then I cannot imagine what a killing the manufacturer of Skylan stands is making.

$300 - One pair of Target MR28 steel speaker stands: 68lbs of high quality steel
$450 - One pair of Skylan 4 post speaker stands: about 6lbs of wood and plastic

And people scream that the Skylan stands are such a BARGAIN?
