    I am just wondering what keeps a bookshelf speaker on a stand. I see some with spikes on the top plate some without spkies and some with clamps on top what are the "best" type. Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Those with spikes will keep the speaker stable, but will leave holes in the bottom finish of the speaker. Those with clamps are good, but more expensive. Most people will use those with a flat surface, and buy some sticky tack for a few bucks at most office supply stores. It is a material that sticks fairly strongly, but not permanently, and will not damage the finish of the speaker.

    I always used to use velcro between my speakers and their stands.
