How is that Logitech's fault?

Sounds to me like a bit of a rant, this stuff happens bud. I thought one of my speakers had blown and I was getting to the near uber pissed state, it was simply a loose wire. As suggested by mattlef buy some super duper strong bond glue and stick them back together, plastic bonds extremely well in these cases let it cure for 24hrs and it will be like new.

I think he is saying that logitech should have used metal... But, well, so many things are plastic nowadays that I guess you just have to accept it. :/

Does't matter if the stand is plastic or metal IMO. Speakers in my opinion are fairly fragile things, doesn't matter if its plastic or metal because a big enough shock(to break plastic), could knock its magnet out of alignment anyways.

Why was the speaker "on stands" unsecured? Super-Glue the stand back together and then use hole mounts, and mount the rears on the wall(thats what the holes in the stand are for, to screw to the wall) behind you.

Isn't that a crazy glue clone - yeah you better be careful using that kind of glue, one drop on your hands or if you're not careful you'll end up with glued fingers (forever!) unless you cut them out :D

As to knocking things over and blaming Logitech, how is it Logitech's fault ? You get what you pay for - those are plastic stands not armored steel - you have to keep in mind we are in tough times and it's not uncommon for companies to cut corners on their quality - :)

LOL tough times Darkstar the Z5500's have had plastic stands for years, I bought my back late in 2007 nobody is cutting corners.

The truth is exactly what was said below
