I have a pair of M22s on some 24" StudioTech stands, which are wobbling like mad. If I tap the side of the speaker, it rocks back and forth for a good three seconds. It doesn't look like it's going to fall off or anything, but I'm just worried about all that movement degrading the sound of the music. The stands on their own, with the speakers removed, are pretty rigid--they don't really move at all if I tap them.
One thing I've noticed is that the rubber pads on the bottom of each speaker don't seem to be helping matters. They seem to make the speakers even more wobbly then they are normally. Should I just remove those rubber pads and place the speakers flush against the top of the stand? It might wobble less, but won't it cause more vibration to run through the stand to the floor? Which is better, I guess is what I'm asking--stable with more vibration, or wobbly with less vibration?
