Product Details

Dayton Audio DSS2-BC Black Chrome Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.

Rigidly coupling a loudspeaker enclosure to a floor by means of a "spiking" system dramatically improves clarity, stereo imaging, and bass response. This is especially apparent with subwoofer systems. These attractive spikes are precision machined from solid brass and then plated with a durable finish. Barbed insert nuts and 6 mm threaded studs are included for mounting in cabinets with walls up to 1" thick. Set includes four cone spikes, four floor discs, four barbed insert nuts, and four threaded studs. Cone is 5/8", insert requires a 5/16" hole to be drilled prior to installation. • Dimensions: 9/16" diameter, 5/8" high (including disc).

Dayton Audio DSS2-BC Black Chrome Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.
Dayton Audio DSS2-BC Black Chrome Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs. is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality, and valueThese spikes are perfect for thoes of us with standard carpet with padding. I originaly tried the shorter ones but had to send them back due to them not being tall enough.The spikes had a perfect finish. The threaded inserts work well. There is no adjusting on these spikes. Meaning, if you dont have a level surface, you cant unscrew one spike to account for the uneven surface. The spikes do not have a very long thread, so you cant really use them for adjustment. You have to screw them all the way in to the threaded insert. Something to keep in mind for un even floors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great QualityThese are as good or better than you are expecting. Flawless finish, beautiful. Inserts thread into MDF easily. Cant make any real judgements about the sound, but so far I think I notice a clearer, more resolved low end, maybe airier sound. But all that could be just because the speakers and stands are an inch or so higher now, lol. Will def buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent buyPurchased these as an experiment for a small 8" sealed subwoofer I built, was not really expecting a noticeable difference, but, wow! The entire range became much clearer, especially 80-120hz, and seems to have given some slight gains below 60hz. Being a small driver in a sealed box the low frequency response was severely lacking, and this doesn't make it rock the house or anything, but there is a difference! Highly recommended!

Dayton Audio DSS2-BC Black Chrome Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.

Mounting without screwing in possible?

Seems like there are some rubber pads in the picture, but it's not listed on the "what you get" list so I can't confirm that that is what they are. Also, there picture doesn't show a spike without the threaded section in it either. But I want to stick the spikes onto some smaller bookshelf speakers without actually having to drill into the cabinet.I just want to confirm that those are double sided rubber adhesive pads I can use to attach the spikes to my speakers.Thanks.
Asked by: tinhoang
The threaded stud is one-piece milled as the spike part. There are little rubbery foam pads to go under the discs. I used a 15/32" drill for the raw hole for the insert nuts, about 3/8" deep so as to not penetrate my 1/2" thick material.I suppose, you COULD cut/grind off the threaded stud and glue or blu-tack the now flat-topped spikes to your speaker...

Is the stud 1/4 - 20 tread size?

Asked by: coda
The threads on our speaker spikes are M6, not 1/4-20.
