OK, I know there are other people with kids around here. I'm not sure how I know that...

Did you do any childproofing of your towers? Any problems with the little demons tykes pulling them over onto themselves?

Not for me so far, but kids in the area of the speakers is the main reason I opted out of the M82 in favor of the M80s. I could just picture somebody bumping into the speaker and the M22 falling on top of one of them.

The first time I left the grilles off the M22s my oldest son, when he was 2, poked the aluminum part of the driver with a pointy object and it now has a very small ding in it. Luckily it didn't hurt the sound quality. Ever since I have drilled it into them that they are not part of their toys and are not to be touched; even their friends have had the riot act said to them just in case.

Oh, I fully anticipate and am prepared for driver damage. It's not like I don't have spares... ;\)

I forgot to mention to avoid the spikes, as I found them to be very tippy with them on, so I went with the rubber feet.

I have the rubber feet on, as I have hardwood floors, so that's no problem. I'll have to try tipping them again myself, although my wife says that that's not a valid test, as I am not <3 feet and suicidal.

Funny enough, I found that spikes mounted around the circumference of the bottom helped keep the little crawlers off the speakers....

When sticking things in ports came up, I knew gorillas couldn't be far behind.

The speakers are pretty smooth and not much for them to grab onto should the child start to topple over and reach out to stop the fall.

I found I just had to make sure when ever they got near the speakers, the first few hundred times, I always told them not to touch and please stay away, eventually it sinks in.


I know I have seen some people building stub walls around the entertainment units/speakers to keep the kids at bay.

... and an upgrade to High Gloss Cherry should remove the last bit of "grip".
