    I have recently been adjusting my speaker set up, just went bi-wire last week, and I remembered my main speakers came with spikes. What are these for and will they do anything to help my overall sound quality?

    Thanks,

    Thanks Brett that helps. I think I will put the spikes in tommorow, but I live in an apartment will the spikes cause more downward noise?
    And another question what gives better sound having the bass out go through the sub-woofer only or through the sub and the mains(my amp has the option for both)?
    Thanks Again,

    Chris: sounds like you need to calibrate your system. Refer to the many threads on that topic for help. In the meantime, try the spikes and see what your neighbor says. When I lived in an apt., I decided to invite my neighbors to my sat night movie and soon it was an occasion and not a police action.

    BTW... always slide when in doubt!!!
