How sturdy is the M60 or M80 naturally in a wild toddler environment?


I would highly recommend outriggers if you have the speakers on carpet as I did. I messed with the spikes many times and couldn't get the speaker sturdy enough.

Once I got the outriggers the are super solid. Mine aren't the prettiest but they ensure my HG Cherry is.


Have you seen MarkSJohnsons that he made? They look great, perhaps you could commission him for a set or the plans. Wood Outriggers

Sovkiller came up with a sweet set too, but I can't imagine they would be easy to replicate and the cost???

Easy to replicate? Yes, I still have the DXF files for it, and the BDF for the machine, now they are indeed very costly, I did them more as a project, and to test my capabilities in programming the CNC. As an employee with a very special price, I ended paying around $150.00 for them both, these are made out of 1/2 clear annealed glass, done on an Italian Bimatech CNC machine, routed out, and Pencil Polished, and with 8 drilled holes in each..Spikes were an additional $20.00 a set from Part Express, plus some other stand-off hardware to use the covers, and two sets of Axiom rubber legs on each speaker...

I had forgotten about those glass beauties. I bet you could sell them regardless of the price, there are many with more money to spend than I.

Has anyone already suggested outriggers in the "things we'd like Axiom to make" thread ? If not, I guess we should.

I had the great idea of bolting some 1x2s to the bottom of the speakers then screwing the feet into the 1x2s, but after looking at the beautiful work above I don't think I'm going to be able to get away with that any more.

Very nice. I believe Axiom is missing out on some sales by not offering a set.

I wouldn't mind something like that. MY m80's are a little wobbly with the spikes on the carpet.
