I was told to put Kitty Litter in my new speaker stands. Was he joking?

I guess i realize he was NOT joking, but it seems strange. I've always heard sand was best. He told me to get unscented kitty litter and fill em all the way up. The stands are 29 inches with 4 columns (2x2). Monitors are 23 pounds each.

Anyone done this with a positive result?

The moisture absorption might be an issue.  I used lead weights (free from my local tire store) and added sand.

JUST AS IMPORTANT as the material is the level of fill.  I experimented with quarter, half and all the way filled.  Surprised at differences, settling on about 2/3.  Clearly, like everything else: try and experiment.
