    I've had a good trawl through the forum but have not found any suggestions on what to stand my speakers and sub on when using spikes on a laminate floor. I've just take delivery of an M&S Premiere set :D and want to make sure they sound as good as they can (awesome on demo!:clap: ).

    I've read a lot about using spikes to isolate the stands to improve the quality but not much about using spikes on a laminate floor, people must be doing this!!

    Anyone got any suggestions that don't involve paving slabs????

    thanks!

    They look like that them, with a little inverted cone shape in the top, for the spikes.

    About a quid each, picked them up at a hi-fi show in Manchester last year.

    Thanks guys, 1p each, £1 each or £5 each I think I know which ones I prefer, I'll have to buy 20 of the things, there's a big difference between 20p, £20 and £100!!!!
