Designed in response to the exploding popularity of flat-panel plasma and LCD televisions, the Flat-Panel Foundations speaker stand, model FF1s from Sanus Systems, is a “stylish” extruded aluminum pedestal contoured to fit the rounded back of new-generation flat-panel speakers.
The stand offers a base of contoured tempered glass with chrome feet to go with the “smoothly engineered” shape of the FF1s, in order to complement today's flat-panel TV displays. The company's wire-management system keeps wires totally hidden in the pillar, while the universal mounting system of the FF1s provides height adjustment and works with most speaker makers' flat-panel speakers.
The Flat Panel Foundation speaker stands are sold in pairs at a suggested $159.99. Each package contains two pillars, two glass bases and six chrome feet. Pillars are 39.5 inches high with a base plate that is 16 inches wide by 12 inches deep. The speaker height adjustment range extends to 13 inches.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
