    My floor standing front pair are causing the floor to shake somewhat. The floor is exposed wood floor boards on joists.

    Now I was just going to use spikes like like I used to do in the old days with my HiFi gear. However, the missus isn't happy with the idea of spike marks on the floor, which is fair enough and I agree having spent days making the floor look good.

    What are the alternatives to metal floor spikes ? Or what I really want to know is what should I use instead ?

    Cheers

    Why not try putting them on floor tiles (one speaker/tile). Any colour, style, price!!!

    i was thinking about trying the stone slabs/spike combination since i also have wooden floorboards which shake a bit more than the neighbours probably appreciate... a paving slab or something should give a good bit of stability and then using the isolation spikes on top of that will hopefully work nicely and raise the speaker cones closer to ear-height at the same time.
