Each cone spike weighs 86 grams and measures 1-1/4" diameter and 1-1/2" tall. The two piece threaded tip design allows for precise level adjustment.

Set includes 4 black chrome cone spikes, 4 black chrome floor discs, 4 insert nuts and 4 threaded studs. Threads are M6.

Dayton Audio DSS4-BC Black Chrome Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.
Dayton Audio DSS4-BC Black Chrome Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs. is rated 4.5745 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Tweak for Accurate Sound ReproductionI have installed the spikes on a pair of Axiom M80 towers and a BIC F-12 subwoofer. My second story 19' x 22' music room floor covering is berber carpet and synthetic padding on a pressed wood platform. I strive for accurate (unenhanced) reproduction of music, and the rubber/metal speaker footers generated unsuitable reverberations and a slightly muddy sound. The DSS4-BC spikes seem to have "crisped up" the individual instruments and vocals, and lifted the subwoofer bass presence to complement versus overwhelm the overall sound. Installation of the DSS4s on the M80s required revamping the manufacturer 1/4" thread with an M6 tap, the latter of which was affixed to Vice Grips and gently turned by hand. I am happy to report that all 8 tapped out metric threads perfectly fit the Dayton screws. The F16 subwoofer spike installation with the 4 female inserts went smoothly i.a.w. the well written instruction sheet. The form, fit, finish, and function of the spikes is top notch!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Threaded insert brokeI installed these on a 3.6 cu foot subwoofer box. The first three threaded inserts installed fine by hand. The last one wasn't going in more than a couple turns. They are slotted so you can use a screwdriver to help turn them. I don't know what they are made out of, but as soon as I tried to turn it with a screwdriver half of the top ripped off. Now I have to purchase a pair of heavy duty pliers to try and remove the insert. If you have to purchase them, make sure you don't use a screwdriver to install them if they get stuck!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the moneyGood price for brass spikes. Appearance is less dark than shown in photo (more chrome in appearance). Fully adjustable and comes with small disc base so not to scratch finish of furniture. Very good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price tagI really thought a long time before buying these spikes. They seemed to cost more than they were worth. Now that I have them installed, I realize they're worth every penny. They are solid, adjustable, and give my system a little extra class. I'm very happy with these.

Dayton Audio DSS4-BC Black Chrome Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.

I have received the DSSC4 spikes. I wish to mount them to Axiom M80 tower speakers, which have pre-drilled 1/4" screw threads. The DSSC4 spike threaded studs are M6. Is there an "easy" way to fit the M6 spike assembly to the speaker bottom?

Asked by: INROCK
The easiest way to mount these is to drill new mounting points and use the included threaded inserts that will accept the M6 threaded rods.

I have had these installed under a Dayton Audio 18" sub. When playing loud the smaller and larger piece of the metal foot vibrate and turn back to their minimal height no matter how I set it. Once this happens the sub rocks slightly. Can this be fixed?

Asked by: drock
I think the best solution to this would be loctite or a thread locker like that. IT will give a little bit more resistance to the vibrations screwing them in on you.

I just need the barbed insert nuts from this spike kit. What part number are they?

Asked by: Semper Fi to HiFi
Unfortunately we do not sell these separately. The threaded inserts are proprietary to the spikes as they are an M6 thread.

What is the rule on spiking a sub?

How tall of spike does a person need to ensure that a downfiring sub can breath?
Asked by: Brant
No rules. It is a matter of personal preference and function: Some subs are bottom-firing and need to be off the floor. Other factors include sub-placement and length of the room-LFE density.
