Ok I walked into the other side of my room and looked over at my TV and my left M60 was LEANING against my stereo cabinet, if it hadn't been there, it would have been flat on the ground!!

I have no clue how it goe like this... I've discovered that if you take the speaker in both hands, and push it, it will rock from side to side quite easily.... hrm....

Jeez, talk about a shocker! This happened before with teh right one, but that was my friend being a jerk....

Still for heavy speakers you'd think they'd be for firmly rooted to teh ground? *pets speaker*

You better not be abusing those M60s or I'm gonna have to call the proper authorities, and have them put in my custody.

I think the stock question here is "did it fall or was it pushed ?"

I guess the screw-in feet could be moved out a tiny bit futher towards the sides for more stability but my 60s seem pretty stable already. Are you using the spikes or the rubber feet ?

I was a little concerned also with my 60's, my house sits on a slab and some areas is a little uneven.
I solved my problem by buildning a set a of stands, it gives them a wider flat base to sit on plus when the vacume cleaner is used or clumsy friends that have to kick every time they get close to them, they hit the stands instead, and with the wider rubber feet they seem to sit more solid.

Don't want to hijack the thread, but are your referring to a good quote from Toy Story? Just wondering if I caught your humor...

I too have a house that's on a concrete slab.I replace the stock spikes with after market spikes from Kalapana Designs and it solved the problem.

If it wasn't pushed, are you on carpet or wood floors? Rubber feet or spikes?

Maybe you have a rat living in your M60 (or sub)?
Seems to me that would be a nice spot in the middle of winter.

i have never had a problem with my m80's being unstable. I did have them on carpet spikes and they certainly wouldnt have fallen over by themselves. and theyre even taller than the 60's
