Hi all,

 I've got Wharfedale Diamond 9.1s on Atacama Nexus 10 stands.

I'm planning on filling the stands but have a few questions:

 - Is it best to fill them right to the top?

- If I use Atabites any idea how much a 9kg tub would fill?

- Any altermnative fillers I should consider (playpit sand?)

 Thanks,

 Col

Any sand will do. Put it in a bag though.

If you can use Atabites. I have them in all my Atacama stands and they do make a difference. One tub (9kg) is more than enough - 4.5kg in each. The stands themselves are already heavy-ish, the Atabites finish it off.
