Dayton Audio DSS4-G Gold Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.
Dayton Audio DSS4-G Gold Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs. is rated 3.875 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Valuable productI needed a set of replacement spikes to screw into the wood bottom plates of my tube amplifier monoblocs, and these really filled the bill! Key are the threaded inserts that screw into the wood and stabilize the double-ended threaded bolts for the spikes (the original screw holes were too large).I do wish those bolts were slightly shorter, as they leave a small gap between the amp wood bottom and the top flange of the spike. I'm glad these are available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice shiny gold brass spikesThese are medium size about the right size for my DIY 16" cube passive subwoofer. If you are building a heavy subwoofer with a plate amp, you'll need something sturdier. Overall good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from solid foundationThese speaker spikes are more than pretty jewelry. Distributing the overall weight of the speaker cabinet on to 4 sharp points increases transmission loss, thereby increasing performance. My subwoofer cabinet sounded noticeably better after the installation of these spikes. Easy to install too!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dayton Gold SpikesThe spikes themselves are certainly sturdy. However, the finish looks more dime store than Tiffany's. I wanted them for solid wood speaker stands which were being built on commission with laminated bases and the "T" nuts will take some finesse to be able to implant in the solid wood. The goods themselves were acceptable value for the price, the international shipping was very high without the option of surface delivery which would have made this purchase more cost effective.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!These spikes are very nicely finished, excellent fit, and reasonably priced. These spikes have a M6 thread, for those of you who are considering these spikes for there isolation needs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sexy finish but quality variable. Good value.Solid, heavy & well machined I use this to support my sub. Does what you would expect of spikes, but standard of finish exemplary. However, I had trouble with one of the "T" nuts, when the "wings" bent & didn't pierce the cabinet. I managed by straightening & retrying twice but by that time fatigue was taking its' toll. Had I had to bend them back again the wings would have sheared. Suggest manufacturer alters instructions, saying pre-peirce the cabinet surface where the wings are to "bite" & that they supply a couple of spares.

Dayton Audio DSS4-G Gold Speaker Spike Set 4 Pcs.

My speakers will have 3 x 3/4" bottom plates. Can the nuts be installed between the bottom 2 layers of MDF and drill into the second layer. Thus using them on a 2.25" thick bottom rather than the max 1" specified?

Asked by: Auburn 77 81
Yes that would be possible. The reason the maximum is 1" is simply do to the length of the threaded rod.

Good Day, I just received two sets of Dayton Audio DSS4-G for my new speakers and need the M6 to M8 adapters. Do you stock these? Thanks

Asked by: sgg_man
Unfortunately we do not have any thread adapters available.
