    Default The Mod in Pictures: Drawing In the Hurricane Nuts

    I used the screws (with 3mm washers) to draw the Hurricane nuts into their holes. Some folks apparently use a clamp to push them through. My way worked great, but may be more time consuming than the alternative. I used 8-32 x 1 socket cap screws for the MWs and PRs, and 8-32 x 1 screws with 82 degree heads for the tweeters. I also used 3mm washers for the MWs and PRs. I don't suppose the washers are essential, but I like 'em.

    BTW, I got the screws and washers at a local company called Tacoma Screw. They were about 1/10 the price of Lowe's or Home Depot. Shop around.

    Default The Mod in Pictures: Follow The Signs

    This is a bad photo, but it shows one my MWs. I wanted to point out the red spot of point that identifies the positive connection. The black/blue wires connect to the red dot connector, and the white where there is no red dot. Your speakers may differ.

    Default The Mod in Pictures: How the Hurricane Nuts Fit

    As you can see, the Hurricane nuts protrude slightly, but they are not in the way at all.

    Default The Mod in Pictures: The Receptacles for the Spikes

    I tried screwing these into the MDF with no adhesive with limited success. On the second go around, I used a drop of Gorilla Glue on each. They've been drying for about 90 minutes. I'll give it another half an hour.

    Default The Mod in Pictures: Spikes Ready to Install

    I purchased a couple of 13"x13" ceramic tiles to place the spiked speakers on. I can't wait to hear the difference in the sound.

    Default The Mod in Pictures: The End Of The Line

    Here is the completed project - speakers on spikes on ceramic tile. If anyone has questions about this mod, please feel free to ask. People here were so willing to help me, I want to pay it forward.

    BTW, I have a spare original Polk SDA cable (blade-to-blade) that I purchased from Helen at Polk before the mod. First $35 + shipping takes it. (It's brand new; original cost with tax and shipping is about $50).

    Moofy, I'll take the B/B cable. I plan to make one eventually, but most of my plans are slow in developing. I'll send you a PM.

    What's under the carpet? Unless it's hardwood, you may want to try simply piercing through the carpet--You'll likely get more out of your spikes that way. Being up on that tile will be helpful in fine-tuning where you want them to be, though.

    Nice project and good documentation. Cool that Jake was able to help you out. I just completed my 2B crossover upgrading and am in the early hours of burn-in. Happy listening!

    It's wood of some sort, but probably not hardwood. Contractor special flooring, no doubt. I just did a little listening and they sound sublime...and still hours to go to get them burned in. Very exciting.
