Not that I'll be moveing the L300 often but I just completed a set of stands with wheels which resemble a furniture dolly. The two "stands" raise the speakers 3" off the floor and it is just enough to bring the tweeters/horns/woofers better in line with my seating position. I have to say it's a noticable improvement in the total sound quality of the L300. I used 3/4" maple to make the stands and used the smallest wheels that would support the weight (145 lbs). Next I'll paint them a semi gloss black and the stands should easly blend in with the original black bases and not look out of place or out of proportion.

These were raised 1-3/4" so that they would clear the bricks thereby letting me move the cabinets just that much closer together. I simply nailed/glued 1"x2" to the existing bottom and painted it to match. Even 1-3/4" helped get the tweeters closer to ear level and the woofers over the coffee table.
