I just upgrade my woofs to Infinity Kappa Perfect 10.1s and am going back in next week while on vacation to upgrade internal wiring to the xovers, swap out the mounting screws with better hardware, and replace the gaskets (mine were missing altogether). While I'm laying both of them down, wondering about drilling the bases and adding some Parts Express spikes, what say ye?
I must admit the bases make moving these bad boys around pretty easy on my carpeted floor (over concrete basement floor). Spiking will be a freaking nightmare to maneuver around. Heck, my little KEF 104/2 (by comparison) are spiked and moving them around is a bitch. I wind up dancing them around, tipping on one spike and walking them unless I need to pick them up and move them a few feet at a time. Also, the ALs are pretty "tippy" already, would hate to make it worse with spikes.
But, you know what "they" say about spiking and connecting to the floor below when on carpet.
Interested to hear from you all on this topic and apologies if it's covered in a thread somewhere already...I did check, but keep getting distracted reading many old threads on all of this addictive audio stuff. And thus, I am a newbie:)
Thanks in advance guys.
