Product Details

Dayton Audio DSS4-BK Black Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.
By rigidly coupling a loudspeaker enclosure to a floor by means of a "spiking" system, it is possible to dramatically improve clarity, stereo imaging and bass response. This is very apparent with subwoofer systems. These attractive spikes are precision machined from solid brass and then plated with a durable black finish. 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. Barbed insert nuts and threaded studs are included for mounting in cabinets with walls up to 1" thick. Set includes 4 black cone spikes, 4 black floor discs, 4 insert nuts and 4 threaded studs. Threads are M6.

Reviews

Dayton Audio DSS4-BK Black Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.
Dayton Audio DSS4-BK Black Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs. is rated 4.4286 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from SpikesMy speakers are big and I wish the spikes were longer and have larger diameter pads.. I've had one loosen up during bass , but it was an easy fix. Bass seems tobe cleaner (other people couldn't tell).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from concern about airtight sealI share the concern that another reviewer had regarding the use of these in sealed enclosures. I found an easy fix for that: get four 1 and 1/4 inch neoprene washers and 4 flat washers, same size. Put the rubber on, then the washer, then tighten. Done.I don't have an opinion yet regarding what these do for sound quality. I need to experiment with different floor materials.I have no complaint about the finish; mine look great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well Built; Flawed FinishThis item is hard to review.The spikes are well-made and are easy to install. BUT, the finish is awful. You can see machining marks on all the spikes in the six sets I ordered. I will keep two sets for my speakers since the finish flaws will not be noticeable on the floor. The other four sets have to go back as I do not want to see the flaws up close on tube components.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Spikes!Used these for a center channel box and a sub box.Would have been really nice if both kits would have had ALL THE PARTS. . . One kit was missing 2 of the threaded rods, so had to go to Lowe's to find something workable. Other than that, very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great priceNot the most heavy duty product as compared to other brands, but they are definitely adequate for most applications and at this price the value is unheard of... Would recommend them if the cabinet is not too heavy... I personally will buy this product again if I need more spikes.

Dayton Audio DSS4-BK Black Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.

Are these spikes 1/4-20? I am buying an SVS subwoofer and they told me parts express had some...

Asked by: jwallace28
Unfortunately they are not. We do not offer any 1/4-20 spikes, they are all M6 thread.

The size states 1-1/4" D and 1-1/5" H. My PE catalog states 1-1/2" D and 1-1/4H. The height is an important dimension for me. Which is correct? Also does height dim. include the floor discs?

Asked by: Mike47
These measure 1-1/4" dia and 1-1/2" H.

Size of Drill for Insert Nuts

What size drill bit should be used to create the holes for the barbed insert nuts?
Asked by: a2x024
To assure the best fit--you need to measure the thickness of the non-threaded part then drill the holes with the proper size. It's likely 1/4" to 1/2" but to get the most out of it's strength, the hole must not allow the threaded part to slip even in a particle board cabinet. The distance above the floor, causes a little better coupling and clarity.

What weight will they hold?

I have a 98 pound subwoofer with is 24" x 24" x 14". Can it hold the weight and do a good job?
Asked by: Gary The Great
That weight will not be an issue for these spikes. There is not an official rating, but i have seen these with much heavier speaker boxes.
