    anyone know where you can get alternative feet for my kef q4 floor standers?
    i was thinking either rubber/plastic types like the ones on my sub or something more wood floor friendly.
    i've currently got mine sat on 1 pence pieces and was looking for something a bit more becoming and more practable when it comes to moving the speakers.
    any ideas?
    cheers

    How about standing them on some small carpet tiles. These would protect your floor and you could choose a colour that comes close to the colour of your speakers or your wooden flooring.
    You would have to remove the spikes of course.

    Alternatively, use asthetically pleasing stone/ceramic tiles or plinths with felt or rubber glued to the underside.
    You could then keep the spikes on the speakers. I have used this second option in the past to increase the height of my speakers. Standing your speakers (with spikes) on a stone base should also improve the sound.
