The self adhesive version has many uses. Use this version under speakers that do not have threaded inserts or do not have threadsizes that are offered by Soundcare. Having them in a tripod arrangement allows for a stable footing even in situations of slightly uneven floors. This version is also fantastic under electronic components such as amplifiers, CD players, etc. Try them under subwoofers as well. Triangular positioning of the feet allows for optimal sonic benefit and is even more cost effective as only three spikes are required per component.
The Soundcare® SuperSpike: The use of spikes with Hi-fi components improves sound quality. It is also a certain fact that the use of spikes damages the surface on which they stand. One has seen numerous attempts to make feet that prevent the disadvantage of damaged floors, but they all render reduced sound quality. The use of spikes gives the best sound ! Soundcare® has dealt with this problem in a serious way and has developed a new SuperSpike that in addition to taking care of all sound advantages, also protects all surfaces. Several high-end producers deliver their products with Soundcare® SuperSpike from factory. Listening tests in Norway, Denmark, Japan, Germany, England, France and USA give excellent honors to Soundcare® SuperSpike.
What are Soundcare® SuperSpikes?. The Soundcare® SuperSpike is an all in one spike foot. This unique construction eliminates the most common problem experienced when using a conventional spike: damaged surfaces. The construction is based on a high quality spike fitted with a custom designed base plate, all integrated in a plastic housing. This allows the user to move the equippment without making scratches and scars to the surface.
Why use Soundcare® SuperSpikes? When the weight of your Hi-Fi equipment is concentrated onto a small area, the weight per square unit area increases enormously, providing better contact with the surface on which the unit stands. This results in an overall improved sound stage and increased control in the lower frequency register. Soundcare® SuperSpikes reduce disturbing vibrations and prevent low frequency noise from transmitting to other rooms. A Soundcare® SuperSpike loaded with a weight of 12.5 kg produces a pressure of more than 6,200 kg / sq. cm !
The Soundcare® SuperSpike is not just another spike! To achieve the best overall soundstage,lowest distortion level and best low frequency control possible, a unique combination of materials has been selected during several listening tests and measurements. Soundcare® SuperSpikes have been tested by an independent test panel of music lovers, audiophiles, musicians and engineers with stunning results. The improvement of the overall soundstage is outstanding. Soundcare® SuperSpikes have also proven to be extremely effective on CD players, pre-, power- and integrated amplifiers and of course turntables. Soundcare® SuperSpike is a low-cost upgrade that will make a major difference to the sound quality of any system.
