Soon I will be recieving my set of oak M60's. Right now I have pretty plush carpet in my living room. I am wondering if the standard rubber feet will be sufficient to keep the speakers secure? Or should I order a set of spikes?

do you have any animals, or small kids?

If either of these answers is no, then the rubber feet will work just fine. I have had my M60's in several different rooms over the years, some with plush carpet and i never had a problem with the rubber feet... If you do use the spikes, and the speaker tips, the spike probably wont be able to take the side load and break... I know from experience........

We have one lazy cat. I don't see him jumping on top but you never know. Are the spikes interchangeable with the rubber feet?

I've always had my 80s on carpet with the rubber feet, and use U.S. quarters to level them.

Maybe I'll try the rubber feet first and see how they do.

You should be fine, i have used the rubber feet for all of my speakers.


I have a 100 LB German Shepherd as well as a 60lb shepherd... They play in the family room, which is the same room my HT resides... They have only knocked 1 of my m60's over 1 time... btw, if your tower does happen to get knocked over, being on the carpet there would most likely be no damage done.

Outriggers would be nice for the M80's, more than once I go by them and they want to hug me.

Our two cats jump up on the M60s all the time, despite me chasing them off. It's been years now and no tip overs with rubber feet on hard floors. I've seen a scary wobble a couple of times though.

I think it's totally dependent upon how plush the carpet/underlayment is.

I've seen carpeting that's so squishy, nothing tall is secure on it!
