Loudspeaker Spikes and Spike Inserts

High End Speaker Spikes

Article - Fitting Speaker Spikes

         A range of LOUDSPEAKER SPIKES in various lengths and mainly with a Blacked finish are available with either an M6, M8 or M10 thread fitting. WOOD INSERTS are available in two styles for fixing the speaker spikes to wood or composite materials. One style is based upon a press or push fit,  known as Knock-in wood inserts. They have good twist / rotational resistance. The head of the Knock-in has a robust flange or shoulder.
        The alternative, known as Screw-in wood inserts, have a sharp cutting thread and a small lipped flange to aid in depth setting.
        BLACKED LOCKNUTS are available to suit either M6 or M8 threads. These items are all sold in packs of 8 pieces or as part of a Spike Kit. The Kits provide for both M6 or M8 thread, consisting of a loudspeaker spike, wood insert and locknut and are also sold in packs of 8.
        A range of drills and Allen keys are available for fitting speaker spikes.
