    Will be running two Rel Q200e courtesy of Timmy B shortly,should I spike both subs on a concrete carpeted floor or decouple the subs by use of the spikes to acheive best results.

    REL supply spikes with their subs then suggest that it's best not to use them, just using the rubber feet instead. :confused:

    Thats what started to confuse me when genning up on sub setup ready for the 2nd sub .Installation notes for the ST series setup suggests "do not use the supplied spikes,using the spikes will decouple the woofer from the floor,which will lean out the base response".Ive now lost the original nylon screws so am unable to test ! Any views would be appreciated .
