I have been holding off on this for a while but given the consensus I will finally add some spikes.
I went with the black Dayton spikes and for some reason thought they were 1/4x20 so I need to head back to the hardware store to get the corresponting T-nuts.
Before I mount these spikes has anyone used them with less than satisfying results?
Also, has anyone built a box frame that fits inside the speaker base to attach the spikes to as to not tamper with the original feet?
I know Bugstyvy had the same concern with his speakers and while I will still spike them, for some reason I also want to keep from drilling into the base.
If I were to construct a base, would it decouple the speaker from the carpet in the same manner as pulling the nailed feet and adding spikes in the same location or would the added base need to be anchored to the speaker instead of the speaker just resting on it?
The 2nd base is just an idea, I don't mind drilling the stock base but if the end result is the same I may just slap some oak pieces together and add another base. Only issue I see is stability with the smaller footprint but I'm not going to push on them either.
