Speaker Spikes
« on: January 26, 2017, 11:14:52 AM »
Hi All,

I'm looking for speaker spikes, any idea where I can get/buy them from locally (South Africa)?

I'm in Randburg.

Thanks,
Norman

Stormy Norman, I just HAD to move your post from Classifeds to Audio Hardware General Discussion section, I needed to see your post count advance from 7, on which number it has been stuck solid for months.

+1 also looking for speaker spikes.

Just curious, only just realized the 'Trade count' can also be a negative value. How is the trade count calculated / determined?

Hi guys.

 If you found a shop or know of an outlet that sells spikes, would you please post it here as it seems that more people are in need of some.

Thanks

i can get similar made - will have to check up on current pricing though ie i got a quote from a bolt manufacturing place around a year ago .... so pricing levels probably need to be updated

That's right, Mike is currently assisting me with the spikes for the speakers as we speak, if you need some he is the man. His handle name is Valvaglo.

Hey Mervin.  Here's one of the pairs I got from Mike (Valvaglo).  I'm really happy with them and they are good quality.
I'm sure you can ask, to a degree, for the M size, diameter and slope of the spikes you want.

Thanks dekardy, yep there they are.

He has also made the plinths which includes the woodserts for my Bookshelfs, very nice.
