They could incorporate the Incra mitre gauge for exact locking at the desired angle.

Personally, I'd like to see speaker outriggers at a much lower price than they're available online. I don't know that Axiom is the one to supply that, though.

Loc: It's all about the location.
Outriggers are an excellent idea. Pricewise, there are so many different routes that Axiom could take depending on the design. It could be as straight forward as a larger wooden base/plaque that attaches to the bottom of the speaker but extends the feet out, a couple of fancy CNC'ed metallic bar type, or glass/marble/granite....

I suspect the price reflects the sales volume. I could see someone offering them at a lower cost only as a service to their customer base.

Too bad we don't know anybody with woodworking skills who has already solved this problem in New Hampshire.

I'm not really a fan of wood though. Smoked glass, or blued steel would get me to purchase.

Tom, you know more than anyone on this board that I don't have much time for woodworking!

(I started making Tom a set....oh...probably 16 months ago and haven't finished yet. For that fact, my own outriggers never got stained / installed and my M60s are sitting flat on the hardwood floor, totally "feetless")
