Here is a link to my spikes:

EndersShadow, thanks much for the offer, I like the brass spikes you have, look suitable stout to put under these towering speakers. One question - I thought the whole point to spikes was to make a direct connection between the spike point and the concrete floor below. Why would you put anything underneath them or use the little discs that come with them (other than to protect a non carpeted floor from damage)?
The moving men would ONLY be used to re-adjust them. Once located in their final position you would remove them....
The Newbie got it:)

Unforunately, the best (solid brass billet) spikes from Mye Sound are no longer available in the 1/4-20 thread size, but he has others.

Other good choices;
Only the first 2 styles. The first style is simply killer, just wish they came in smaller sizes. ... pikes.aspx
I prefer solid brass, but these are pretty fucking cool.

A Google search should come up with others.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

In a recent press conference, President Obama remarked, "If I had a city, it would look just like Detroit."

Good sound—like good music, good wine and good fellowship—is meant to be shared.

Unreasonably priced spikes at ... B000V9H580


....or these at ... rice-deal/


Now here are some reasonably priced spikes. Jesse, I believe that these are one piece at but it seems the 1/4-20 are also unavailable at the moment.

In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.
