Spikes and stands
I was just wondering how important stands are to sound quality? Is it mostly just to get the right height for the speakers and to provide isolation via the spikes? Also should my speaker stands have spikes on the top as well as the bottom? I get the feeling they should, theyre just cheap celestion ones i got off ebay for £5.Also I was wanting to get spikes for my REL strata and my Dm603 s2s but i have no idea what thread size the holes are, is there a standard size for speakers, M6? I checked the manual it doesnt say a size. Also my 603s have one of the threads missing on the underside where the spike screws in, the metal bit has come out the wood, do you reckon its possible to replace this? I was thinking maybe i could make one on at the lathe at uni but its a lot of hassle. Another option would be to maybe put some putty inside the hole and thread a hole in after it dried?
