Sorry if this has been asked and answered already, but I'd appreciate any recommendations you may have for NX-Studio stands - white is preferred but not necessary. Thanks in advance!

I used Monoprice Monolith stands, filled them with sand, and bolted my Studios to them. The whole unit is deceptively heavy and I don't worry at all about them being knocked over (even by my elementary school-aged children). They're black, but could easily be painted.

Nice, thanks. By bolting the stands to the speaker, I guess you don't use anything for isolation between the two?

No isolation - bolted tight and spiked to the concrete floor. Filled with sand, there's no way these things would ring....THUD

Detail on the inserts used for bolting?

I installed 1/4-20 t-nuts on the inside of the cabinet. I’m not a woodworker, but I figured these would give me strength needed without having to rely on threads biting into the MDF. I then drilled corresponding holes in the top plate of the stands and used hex bolts to fasten it all together.
