• For general sizing, we recommend using Speaker Plinths that are about 2" wider and deeper than the speakers they will support; more margin improves sound further.  When necessary, we offer custom-sizing at additional cost.

• Our stock Speaker Plinths are hand finished with a clear satin lacquer that beautifully enhances the striking natural grain character of our air-dried maple. We also offer three made-to-order toned  finishes: Natural Cherry, Deep Rosewood, and Satin Black.

The default stand option is for a 2" thick Ambrosia maple with clear satin finish. Choose 4" thickness and made-to-order color options from the Maple Stands Thickness & Finish drop-down menu.

• 4" Speaker Plinths invariably sound better than 2" Plinths. The difference is clearly audible—and is particularly dramatic on concrete, tile, and engineered floors or subfloors.

• The distinctive character of Ambrosia maple's natural grain coloring and figuring is unique for each pair of stands. Our Amish craftsmen hand-plane matched pairs from the rough-cut, air-dried 2½" and 4½" maple to remove coarseness and imperfections from the sawmill. Typically this yields finished 2" and 4" thicknesses but, because of variations in the rough-cut timber, the exact thickness can vary by 3/16".


• The default option for footers attached to and supporting Speaker Plinths is Low Heavyfeet with short sharp points, the best-sounding 2" footer option on uncarpeted floors.  Be sure to use the 'Pre-Attached Stand Footers' dropdown menu options to choose footers best suited for your floor type.

• To avoid marring handsomely finished hardwood floors, use Radiused Heavyfeet. The rounded bottom incurs only a very slight compromise of sound quality relative to sharp points.

• When installing Speaker Plinths on luxury carpet and padding more than 1/2" deep, use Heavyfeet For Thick Carpet.

• For standard commercial-type carpet up to 1/2" deep, Heavyfeet For Thin Carpet will sound slightly better than the Thick Carpet version.

• When budget permits, upgrading Speaker Plinths with our far more massive Megafeet—3½ times heavier than Heavyfeet—is a worthwhile investment for listeners seeking the very best performance.

• We never recommend using Isoblocks as footers for speakers or as supports for speaker stands. Any somewhat soft footer allows speakers to rock which inevitably muddies the bass.


• Now or later, we strongly recommend our brass speaker footers to couple your speakers to their Plinths for improved sound. Ordering now will save you 15% on the footers. The discounted price is automatically displayed for each option.  Even the least expensive, Low Heavyfeet, will at least double the improvement you gain from Speaker Plinths, compared to stock factory feet or spikes. You can choose from three footer categories.

• Time-Correcting Footers For Speakers offer adjustable tiltback and are the best-sounding way to mount speakers with tweeters at or below ear level.  Arrays attach two 1½" tall Thread-On Low Heavyfeet to the rear of each speaker, and one 2¼" tall, unattached Triplepoint Heavyfoot or Low Triplepoint Megafoot under the front. Non-marring, radiused options are available.  

• Unattached Footers For Speakers are best-sounding if your speakers don't need tiltback. Triplepoint Heavyfeet—or even better, Low Triplepoint Megafeet—will be your very best-sounding options but can be less stable under narrow or lightweight speakers.

• We offer Thread-On Footers For Speakers in sets of eight, four per speaker, as required by most floorstanders.  (If you need a different quantity, call 1-888-236-2753 or email [email protected].)  Thread-on footers offer maximum stability for very narrow speakers and whenever stability is primary.  They are also most convenient for speakers that are moved frequently.

• Investing in Megafeet as footers for speakers will make more difference than Megafeet as pre-attached footers supporting stands. Of course if budget permits, Megafeet for both will yield even better sound.
