Best Speaker Feet & Spikes in 2020



1" Platinum Silicone Hemisphere Bumper, Non-Skid Isolation Feet with Adhesive | 20 Duro | 4 Pack Review:


I have used silicone footers for vibration absorption for years to isolate electronics or speakers from their stands, and these looked like a more reasonably-priced version of the Isolate It! brand bumpers I usually use. When these arrived I was surprised by the hardness of them. These are much harder than the other brand I use. Then I discovered there's something called the "Durometer Shore Hardness Scale." Whoever came up with this great idea decided to have different scales with the same durometer ratings on them. Consequently, a 20 durometer product on the "Shore A" scale is harder than a 60 durometer product on the "Shore 00" scale. The description clearly states "Shore A" so I am not holding my surprise against the product at all.

Although these aren't nearly as soft as what I'm accustomed to using I expect they will work well. I also expect these will not suffer from the stickiness between the domed surface of the bumper and its contact surface as the softer bumpers do. I have not yet installed these, but I will do so tomorrow and will update this review if I detect a performance difference over the next couple weeks. If it's 15 days past the date of this review and I've not updated it indicating these perform better or worse than the softer bumpers it means I found their performance as footers for audio components and speakers to be indistinguishable.

8 Set Golden Speaker Spikes, Speaker Stands Subwoofer CD Audio Amplifier Turntable Isolation Stand Feet Cone Base Pads Review:


These spikes were part of a double order. The other part was a package of four spikes. I had to place the order twice as the first order came with four spikes/cups and eight cups without spikes. The second order came the next day and everything was included.

I use these spikes under a bunch of free standing rack mount gear. They work well and look good.



Black Adhesive Bumper Feet - Made in USA – Rubber Isolation Pads for Speakers, Subwoofers, Home Theater, Electronics, Audio Equipment – 14 Piece Review:


Good quality vibration isolation. I am very happy with the purchase overall. The adhesive is not too strong, which means it doesn’t leave any residue and can be removed without resorting to violence. However, that also means that it is impossible to slide your sub into place - you have to lift and place!

Happy overall.



Nobsound 4PCS Silver Aluminum Spring Speakers Spikes Isolation Stand for HiFi Amplifier/Speaker/Turntable/Player Review:


I have isolation feet that cost 5 times what this product cost and don't perform any better. I am using 4 springs with a plinth that weighs about 30 lb. There is no perceptible attenuation when the surface on which the TT is mounted is tapped with considerable gusto with a small hammer with volume at full. I have no interest in what instrumentation might see ... just concerned with what I hear. For fun I tried these under a hefty sub-woofer and the change in output was amazing; was losing a tremendous amount of energy through the floor.

A really good, common sense product at a very fair price.

8 PCS Black Speaker Spikes Floor Protectors Shoes Mats 5x25mm 24K Nickel Plated Isolation Stand Foot Cone Base Pads for Audio Turntable Speaker CD AMP Review:


I haven't installed them as yet but they will do the job. I wanted to purchase the stainless steel model instead but they would not have been worth double the price. I am building my own speaker monitor stands for my small home studio and these will work well. They did not however come with the self adhesive pads so be prepared to attach them yourself with another adhesive. 3M makes a "VHB" gray bonding tape which I will be using however it is expensive to buy an entire roll. People have spoken of the feet popping off, which is why you need to use a strong bonding method. The 3M stuff is similar to what is used to attach the placards (car names) on vehicles. All in all I think they should do the job.
