Monitors Stands

Hello Folks,

I am working on a new table "desk" for my studio on which I will put the screen and the monitors ... however I have an inquiry ....

How about if I ask the carpenter who is building my desk to build two built in stands on top of my desk made from wood each "same as the desk wood" ... would that be more useful than placing the monitors on separate normal steel stands behind my desk ?

Opinions are much appreciated ....

Cheers

The problem with the built into desk system is that the monitors become immovable, not flexible for adjusting in the room to get the acoustics right, you;d have to move the whole desk to make adjustments. I'm in the middle of building a desk and monitor stands myself, and took this into consideration. I think having the monitors on moveable stands will make it easier to dial in the acoustics of the room, even though they are pretty much set and forget.

The vibrations will be transferred easily to the desk surface (bad), and this is a main reason why not to use desk's "built in" stands.

All vibration damping stud mounts have their own limits, it is better way to use right studs for your speaker, then heavy stands placed on floor. This way we additionally lowered vibration with stands weight and with floor weight. This is a way different from direct coupled desk "stands", because desk is light.

I did conduct a google search and one thing I couldn't find an answer and hope someone would answer me is: knowing monitors are at ear level .... is there a minimum height that the monitors should be at from the floor ?

Yes, and this is a part of monitor placement https://www.gearslutz.com/board/bass-...t-methods.html

boggy ... I did read your tips ... very useful indeed .. but you did not mention anything related to the height of the stands ... would the speaker being at mid of room height cause frequency cancellation ?

it is room dependent, you need to find it by measurements....
