But I haven't seen mention of carpeting; I believe he's using spikes directly on concrete.

If I'm correct on the above, I would think a 500 would start digging little spike-shaped holes in the cement after a few good movies!

yep, I think he is using them on concrete, which would not be a good thing. At least I would put a small throw rug or carpet sample underneath the speaker. Not sure how you secure spikes?

I was lazy change to rubber feet since I moved the sub many times for troubleshooting before. Hence, I just secured existing spikes and found result satisfactory.What's the different placing a carpet underneath the speaker?

There's just a chance that the spikes will rattle on the concrete when the sub is working hard... putting carpet underneath should prevent that from happening.

I still don't understand what your saying by "securing spikes", how can you secure them more than just screwing them in tight? It is easy to turn the sub on its side and try the rubber knobs. As others have stated the spikes are intended for carpeting to help secure the speaker.
