View Full Version : Finding a stand for JBL hanging speakers?
06-05-2003, 01:37 AM
I've recently acquired two JBL Marquis MS112 speakers, which are to be used both in a music teaching studio and (mainly) at musical productions in rented facilities. I know they are designed to be permanent and suspended, but I need to know if it's possible to find stands that will hold them. They have no holes in the bottom (obviously). Is this possible? I don't think JBL makes any.
Thanks for any info you might offer!

I'm not familiar w/ those stands, but you might try something like this, assuming that your speakers have a flat back and are under the weight limit for this stand (180lb).
Better picture on Quiklok's site:

thanks, arbiter, for the suggestion! those stands might work for me. The speakers are only 50 lbs. The only reason it might not work is that they do not have flat backs. They have a 114 degree angle on the back side.
Also, for the performances, the speakers are usually raised about 6-8 feet high. I guess they probably don't make a stand of that type that goes that high.
I will look more into it, thanks again for the input. If anyone else has another idea, please post that too. Thanks!

There are at least a couple companies who make recessed stand cups that you can retrofit to your speakers using the appropriate sized hole saw to cut a hole for the cup. They attach via conventional wood screws on a flange mounted to the bottom outside of the speaker.
You can then use the speaker with any typical aluminum speaker stand such as those made by Ultimate Support.
This is the proper was to do this. I wouldn't use X-stands due to the fact that they don't get the speakers up very high, and for a smaller cabinet like the Marquis you describe, they won't be very stable.

Something like this?
We carry them. There are a few sizes available.
You can also get a flat plate w/ a receiving cup on the bottom, but it will make your speakers unable to sit flat.

Exactly like that... :)
