So I am now the proud owner of a pair of Audioengine 5 speakers. I'm currently running them in using an SB3 on random play. The next step is to install them in the room intended for them. I have searched the web but I can't find a definitive answer on how to mount them, especially because they need to be mounted at least 6-12" from the wall.
The manual recommends the use of speaker stands. However, the speakers don't appear to have any means of fixing them to a stand. Most of the stands I have come across appear to just rely on gravity to keep the speakers in place.
I have visions of one stray nudge of a stand or speaker sending the speaker to an early grave on my solid tiled floor.
Also, how do you guys out there with powered speakers on stands connect and position the SB3? I have thought of securing it to the top of the LH speaker with velcro or similar.

That is exactly how most speakers on stands work, they just sit on top of them (often on a set of three metal spikes). Ideally you fill the stands with something heavy like sand so that they don't wobble when you nudge them and therefore the speaker is less likely to topple.
