The Atacama Nexus 6i speaker stands (including free gel pads) are a 600mm high new version of the award winning Nexus 6, the most popular model in the Nexus range, being the ideal height to suit most stand mount speakers.
These precision engineered stands are made from heavy gauge steel along with 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.
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).
For the best performance, the centre column can be filled. We recommend filling with Atacama Atabites (more effective than sand). Generally you'll want each stand to be around 2/3 filled with the Atabites, but as every room is different, we recommend filling them half way, then having a quick listen, and then filling them up progressively until the sound and bass response sounds right.
Why pick this height?
The Nexus 6i speaker stands are the most popular in the range at 600mm (23.7") high (excluding spikes), as this is generally the ideal height for most bookshelf 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 500mm, 700mm or 1000mm heights.
