    Default Foot plate for rt800

    I'm dumb when it comes to high end audio but my father hooked me up with a sweet system that has to rt800... Now, these speakers have a sort of... Foot plate.. and I don't know what caused it but one of them cracked... So now the speaker is leaning back... I noticed they can be removed so I was curious about two things...

    1) If I take the plates off and sit the speakers directly on the carpet, would that damage them in any way?

    2) Is there any place where I can buy another plate?

    Thank you so much for your patience... I haven't asked my father, as he would take the first plane out and kill me before dawn.... lol

    PS:

    Removing the base is bad (since you have to set it on the floor) - removing the base itself is no big deal.

    Unless I am mistaken, they are bottom ported and the port fires into the base... blocking the port by setting it on the floor is a bad thing.

    Default yes...

    Thank you for the info! Yes, there is a hole in the bottom of the speaker, I assumed it was there for the release of air or something... I'll just order a new foot platE!!!
