Dayton Audio DSS3-BC Black Chrome Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.
How much weight can the spikes and discs handle?
I'm having a hi-fi rack made, and those little discs will be underneath it all. There's likely to be 200-250 lbs of weight bearing down on the spikes and the feet they sit in. Are the spikes, and especially the feet they sit on, at risk of breaking under such weight?
While I don't have a weight capacity rating on these spikes, per se, I can say with confidence that they are not designed to support equipment racks. They are designed for speaker cabinets which do not begin to approach 250 pounds. Equipment racks and items of that kind of mass should be supported on rubber feet or casters which are rated to handle the load. Please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-338-0531 if you'd care to discuss this further.

What type of threads are on the top of the spikes? I'm probably going to implement these into a design in which I will not use the insert nuts and need to know what type of threads they are ahead of time. Thanks
These use an M6 thread.
