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.

Thank you for your interest – Mike Ryan (dr. Frankenstand)


The Original Air-Powered speaker stands since 2005!

The Original Pneumatic “powered” speaker stand, the Frankenstand, was invented and designed in 2005 by Mobile DJ Mike Ryan (Dr. Frankenstand) and made specifically for professional entertainers! The “power” changes the weight of your speaker into “neutral buoyancy” making it EZ to lift and lower your speakers. NO MORE USING YOUR SHOULDER TO LIFT YOUR SPEAKERS!

Due to the wide variety of speakers weights, Frankenstands come in two “powers”: F1 for speakers weighting between 30 and 50 lbs. (Mackie 450 and JBL EONs) and F2 for speakers weighing between 55 and 80 lbs. And because operating a speaker stand shouldn’t be a puzzle, Frankenstand’s legs open EZ! Plus the leg’s rubber feet are glued on. The Frankenstand, fully extended, stands at 6’ tall with a 3½ foot leg spread.

Dear Frankenstand

“As a 5’3″ woman, I’ve always struggled with getting speakers up to their optimal height and then bringing them down safely at the end of a gig. Frankenstands neutral buoyancy technology allows me to do this with a slight push of the hand. What a break through – I highly recommend this innovative back-saving product to every DJ!”

Dear Frankenstand

“It is about time that someone came up with a stand that lifts some of these heavy speakers that we all use. These new stands not only cut your set up time but at the end of the event when you’re tired, it is so much easier to take the speakers down, not to mention safer. We all know when one is tired that is when the accidents happen.

Thanks again for all your help. Next stop for us is applying Frankenstands to our big rig stage/truck and our fifth wheel stage/trailer units.”

“They are FANTASTIC! Truly 10 times better than the other models. I love them and have referred them to every DJ I have talked to. Thanks again.”

Dear Frankenstand

“I wanted to write to tell you that my new Frankenstand speaker stands are absolutely brilliant . . . my experience is amazement. I truly can’t believe how much easier it makes my job. This “neutral buoyancy” thing is sweet; you put the speaker on then like magic with minimal effort it goes up. I have used my JBL EON 15’s and the 10’s and both rose with ease.

Jen, my wife, also thanks you for this great design, as she is smaller in height at 5’ 2”, so has always struggled with lifting the speaker in the past but now uses half the effort. I can’t wait to show my fellow DJs. Cheers Mike and thanks again.”

Dear Frankenstand

“Frankenstands are the best accessory I have bought since I started my company. Since I am a multi-op, I bought a pair of F2s just so I could test them out. Initially, my guys looked at them and were skeptical. Once my guys started using them all I heard was . . . ‘I want my own pair’.

I really like the ease of use and, of course, the lack of wear and tear on my body trying to hoist a heavy speaker up over my head or that annoying method of putting the speaker on first and lifting and locking bit by bit. I place the speaker on the Frankenstand at my shoulder height, turn the knob and ‘Tada!!’ It raises right where I want it.

Thanks, Dr. Mike for inventing such a great product for DJs. “Frankenstands . . . they’re alive!”

Dear Frankenstand

“My newest mobile performance gear favorite is the recently created Frankenstand – – speaker sticks featuring impressive strength and essential good looks, coupled with a unique hydraulic capability that quickly elevates a box with the easy push of a hand. And what goes up, I’ve discovered, comes down just as smoothly… it’s an amalgamated monster of a support system that any deejay or roadie can appreciate.”
