Loudspeaker Spike Protectors & Feet:

    There are a large number of types and variants of fittings for mounting / standing loudspeaker cabinets on the floor. These range from rubber-mounted cabinets as used in concert halls, which require frequent re-location, to domestic Hi-Fi units which in general have a fixed position. In addition, small cabinets can often be shelf-mounted or placed upon stands. Below is a selection of speaker feet which cover a wide range of applications.

Vibration Isolation an alternative to Spike Protectors

    Now many domestic speaker systems use loudspeaker spikes to isolate floor or shelf-borne vibrations from the cabinet. Whilst helpful in this respect, the pointed spike ends can damage / mark wood based surfaces e.g. wood flooring or shelving, etc.
    QTA can provide a selection of spike protectors / shoes in both metal and acetal which provide a degree of protection to supporting surfaces.
    The metal protectors are small 13mm diameter discs and have a small locating central recess for the spike end.
    The Acetal discs are 24mm diameter, 6mm thick, with bevelled edges and a central recess. These provide somewhat better handling / positioning. Available in 3 colours, red, blue or black, these discs have been tested to 7.5kgs load each and therefore a set of 4 are well able to support loudspeaker cabinets or other equipment to 20kgms total load. The material is non-marking on most surfaces and the discs can be provided with self-adhesive EPDM undersurface as an optional extra.
