M6 x 8 in black.

 

Anyone got an unused set gathering dust in a drawer?

 

Thanks.

Not a direct answer sorry (hint: Aliexpress) but are you sure you need them? When I got my Wharfedales they came with spikes and I looked at whether I should fit them or not. The Internet is divided 50:50 on spikes/no spikes, with an endless supply of pseudoscientific arguments supporting either side. No-one appears to have taken any measurements to see whether they do any good or not, and under what conditions.

 

 

My speakers ended up sitting on the carpet, no spikes.

Yeah, definitely need them. Picked up a really nice old pair of Sound Creations stands, but the pillar/base connector stands proud of the base so they don't sit flat without spikes. Might get by on a deep carpet but these will be on a hard floor. AliExpress is the back up plan ;-)

Ah, fair enough. Looks like the Wharfedales are M6, if you're in Auckland you could borrow them until you get replacements from Ali or whatever.

 

 

This also assumes I can locate them in the mess from moving things around during the rebuild...
