If you have speakers with spikes and a floor that might be damaged by them then these ‘shoes’ will protect it for you. They are simply conical disks with a recess on top for the spike to fit into. They come in a really nice box and are well made and obviously a premium item. It’s a bit fiddly fitting them as you have to get down on the floor and slide them under the spikes but it’s hard to see how they could be made any other way. It took me about 5 minutes per speaker but a more limber person could do it more quickly. They look nice (they make them in black as well) and they work so what’s not to like?.
Anyone with a floor that they want to protect should consider getting a set or three of these. Excellently packaged and finished to a very high standard, these beat standing your speakers on pennies by a country mile. The grippy felt-style backing is a nice touch and further reduces scratch potential for the floor. Depending upon the weight of your speakers it can be a bit tricky to position them precisely under the spike but that is where a small blob of blutack™ comes in really handy.
Pretty, small, succeed at keeping spikes off the wood. Spikes on audio furniture only make sense if you have carpet. I no longer have much carpet downstairs – i didn’t worry too much until my cleaner moved the furniture. Ouchso, these won’t stop a stupid cleaner, but they’ll definitely keep the spikes out of the wood. They’re also shiny, well made, and do the job they’re supposed to without being sold at crazy ‘audiophile’ prices. They even come in a surprisingly nice box. Here are the specifications for the Set of 4 AudioSerenity Brushed Stainless Steel Hi-Fi Spike Shoes:
- The spike shoes measure 30mm in diameter and are 7mm tall.
- 4 Spike Shoes in Brushed Stainless Steel Finish
