I had been using the z5500s with mike stands for mounting of the satellite speakers. Based on an idea from Tony Mads USA I made what follows in the photos. I mounted the satellites on a 48" x 6 " pine board. I spray painted the board black ( need to do a litte retouching I missed a spot) The stand is a 2 tier Quik Lok stand. Instead of using the 2nd tier for another keyboard I flipped the 2nd tier so it was level with the first tier. I mounted industrial strength velcro on the pine board and 2nd tier.

Steve Thanx for the pic....yes I now remember your posting of these ....
nice setup & very nice living room
having speakers all in front of me concerns me with monitoring....always seems too boomy when its all in front for me.

Donny, you're right on with your thoughts about having the speakers in front of you. The sats mounted on the mike stands ala Gary Diamond gave me that ability to monitor because they could be placed just behind me. But I found it a pain to setup of the 1 hour cocktail hours or nursing homes. I still use the Z55s for the longer gigs, but have opted to use a Barbetta 51c for the 1 hour gigs. I'm much happier with that easy set up. And the stuff fits much better on my rock n roller type cart.

Oh, yea, thanks for the compliments on the living room, I'll be sure to tell my wife she's the one who designed the look when we built the house.
