Would i really benefit from spiking my HT Tempest, Its well built sealed, mid leaning to low Q design, I was looking into something interesting to add to the mirror black finish i have on it, and the dayton speaker spiking system looked alright. I wanted to know if anyone here has ever used something similar and if the imaging improved.

Personally I don't think spiking makes a noticeable difference, but I guess factors such as the type of floor and the weight of the sub may have to be taken into account.

If your sub is on a thick carpet with padding underneath, then spiking might be able to make the bass cleaner and perhaps more tight.

Something that will have a similar effect to spiking the sub is placing a heavy weight on top of the sub to add mass and reduce the vibrations of the sub.

I've tried those spikes before. I guess the results really depend on the sub you have. As to the actual build quality of the spikes, they're pretty good for the price.

If your enclosure isn't vibrating then (based on my experience) it won't make much of a difference. Back in college, a roommate and I built a sub that would literally walk across the floor... spikes were required! Of course this was before I knew about proper enclosure design, bracing, etc. Spikes look cool though...
