I am in the process of having a new wooden floor laid and, for domestic reasons, will be unable to use the spiked stands on which my speakers currently sit upon my (carpeted) floor.
The stands themselves are spiked top and bottom. The tops are ok, but I'm looking for a solution for the bottom, so to speak. At the moment, I'm thinking of something like a granite or marble slab upon which to place the stands, reatining the spikes which will then sit on -though obviously not penetrate - the marble/granite. The spikes are, of course,removable, but stability is not an issue because of their placement. Sound quality most certainly is, though.
Has anyone any tips/recommendations or other solutions from a purely acoustic point of view? My intention is still to use the bottom spikes, but these are, of course, removable if there's anything significantly better that anyone can recommend.
All help, suggestions and comments most welcome!
