    Default Speaker Spikes

    I have eight of these Parts Express spikes with threaded inserts, and I just won't be using them. I'll karma these, but winner will pay shipping as they are a little heavy, and will be sent in a small box.

    Say "Spike It" to be in, and I'll draw the winner Sunday night.

    Speaker Cabinet 1/2" Super Toe Spike Set 4 Pcs.
    By rigidly coupling a loudspeaker enclosure to a floor by means of a spiking system, it is possible to dramatically improve clarity, stereo imaging and tighten up the bass response. This is particularly effective on flimsy flooring and thick carpet. Includes 4 toes, 4 threaded inserts and 4 jamnuts. Requires 1/2" hole and 10 mm allen wrench for installation. Dimensions: Spike: 3/4" L x 5/16" dia. Thread on spike: 1-3/8" L x 3/8" dia. Insert: 1" L x 1/2" dia.

    Please keep in mind that the threaded inserts are 1/2" in diameter; which is not small. They are solid and heavy spikes, but I wouldn't recommend putting them into smaller, or thin walled speakers/subs.

    Good luck!
