SPECS & HOW FRANKENSTAND WORKS
How It Works – The gas springs (shocks) help you raise and lower your loud-speakers. One power doesn’t fit all speakers so dr. Frankenstand averaged out the most common speaker weights and came up with:
F1 for 10 to 12 inch speakers or 30 to 50 pound speakers (and)
F2 for 15 inch speakers or 55 to 80 pound speakers.
(FYI each speaker will hold well over 80 pounds but dr. Frankenstand figured speakers over 80 pounds should be on a stage not a stand.)
Hybrid stands – Frankenstands are made with aluminum legs and sliding tube and a steel center-tube (lighter and stronger).
The gas springs (shocks) are designed for neutral buoyancy – Neutral Buoyancy is not a boating term, but a concept that lifts AND lowers a speaker with the same effort (buoyancy) which with all things being equal should make your speaker go EZ UP and EZ DOWN.
Nuts and Bolts – Often overlooked on most stands, FRANKENSTAND is the only stand manufacturer to use Alan bolts and Top-Loc nuts (NASA uses these same nuts and bolts). Frankenstand also includes a pull-ring-plunger as a positive lock on the sliding tube complementing a friction locking knob.
WEIGHT: an honest 11.2 pounds
MAX leg spread: four feet
MAX height: six feet (two foot extension available)
Lifetime Warranty – Frankenstands are warrented against manufacturer defects. THE GAS SHOCKS come with a 10-Year warranty or 20-thousand cycles up and down.
Dealers – Frankenstand has a select number of Peo-Audio dealers that can supply you with your next Frankenstand Powered Speaker Stands.
