The Ultimate Support TS-100B Speaker Stand makes it easy to raise and lower heavy loads, thanks to an internal shock telescoping mechanism. The air spring is under a 50-pound preload. This allows the stand to raise any speaker weighing 35 to 45 pounds without any effort from you. Speakers heavier than 45 pounds will require effort by you, but that effort will be offset by the gas spring.
The stand is constructed from anodized tubing and has metal reinforced clamps to securely support more weight than other similar stands. Despite being heavy-duty, the stand is surprisingly lightweight and can be folded down into a compact and portable unit.
