    I've checked through PE, and don't really like their selection as it's quite limited...any suggestions as to where I can find more feet/spikes for the stands? Not much on eBay either.

    TIA.

    I bought these from madisound for around 9 bucks. They have other options on their accessories page.

    Madisound, Zalytron, Speaker City, and just about any other speaker parts store usually carry some form of spike.

    I just used little rubber bumpers on mine and they work great on everything except carpet.

    Yeah, I've seen that set of spikes before...a lot cheaper at Madisound than PE! I guess I didn't think to look there...thanks, that looks like what I'll go with.

    The thing is that they'll be on a tight carpet (not fluffy), so I didn't think that rubber feet would work as well.

    Thanks for the help!

    excellent...I'm probably still going to go with madisound, but I'll take care of that after the stands are actually built...hopefully by tomorrow afternoon I'll have pics uploaded (starting at noon...can't take that long...right?).

    Took me an hour to find everything at Home Depot, it being my first time there for myself.

    Wish me luck. [​IMG]
