The Atacama Nexus 5i speaker stands (including free gel pads) are a 500mm high version of the award winning Nexus 5, the shortest stands in the Nexus range, ideally suited to taller bookshelf speakers.
A range of top plate sizes are available (select the one that best suits your speakers so the top plate is slightly smaller than the speaker).
These stands are manufactured from heavy gauge steel and the assembly is made using upgraded high tensile fixings to maintain optimum rigidity. The top plate is manufactured from 4mm thick steel plate and base carpet spikes are supplied as standard. If you are placing the stand on a wooden floor, we recommend also ordering Atacama Spike Shoes to protect your floor.
For the best bass response with your speakers, the centre column can be filled. We recommend filling with Atacama Atabites rather than sand (these are delta shaped chips that interlock together and are more effective than sand). Simply fill them half way up, check the bass response in your room, and then progressively fill them until the level of bass sounds right (generally this is around 2/3 filled).
Why pick this height?
The Nexus 5i stands are the shortest model in the Nexus range at 500mm (19.7") high (excluding spikes), ideal for larger model stand mount speakers. When selecting speaker stands, consider your general listening level and speaker size. As a general rule of thumb, you want the speaker's tweeter to be at ear level. Feel free to call us for speaker stand advice if you are not sure which stands would suit your speakers.
We also sell Nexus in 600mm, 700mm or 1000mm heights.
