Loudspeaker spikes are more effective when used in conjunction with Herbie's dBNeutralizer decoupling, especially with wood or suspended floors, whether carpeted or bare. Likewise, if your spikes couple firmly to your cabinet and are themselves solid and relatively free of coloration, they will complement Herbie's Decoupling Gliders very well by easing some of the workload and making the Gliders even more efficient. (Herbie's Cone/Spike Decoupling Gliders are used under your present spikes or cones.)
Features fiberglass-reinforced dBNeutralizer(tm) decoupling base and extra-thick brass, stainless steel or titanium disk. Fitted into Magic Sliders, they can be used on virtually any kind of floor, bare or carpeted, with easy-sliding mobility. Extra-deep conical indentation prevents spike from slipping out when lateral pressure is applied. Suitable for audio racks, stands and loudspeakers of virtually any weight.
Regular: 1-3/8" diameter by 1/2" tall. With speaker load, height from bottom of Glider to bottom of conical indentation is about 5/16" (8mm).
Giant: 2-3/8" wide by .67" tall (conical indentation is .144" deep).
Brass: superb hi-end results with most audio systems (our default recommendation).
Stainless steel: superb hi-end results with most audio systems.
Titanium: best-looking and best-sounding results possible.
We are pleased to have found the gliders. We have Sonus Faber Serafino speakers on a thin carpet and have been reluctant to move them. Our floor is uneven underneath so one or more might fall off but they are much easier to put back on than the stock circles. We were able to move them more easily and get better sound. Wish we had found them earlier.

Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider - Regular / Titanium
They look superb. I feel, right or wrong, that they provided a slightly improved sound stage with my Wharfedale EVO 4.4 speakers. Thank you.
unfortunately they are not working for me and I’m buying sliders from Home Depot..the rubber rings around the sliders pop out-it does not seem to be able to handle the weight of my Eggleston Andra speakers -(
Titanium is king !
I thought the stainless steel gliders were incredible, the titanium elevates it to the stratosphere! Vocals/midrange is crystal clear and holographic. Bass is tighter and more extended. Drums are so accuate and with proper weighting. All instruments pop and present a natural, organic presentation. Do yourself a huge favor and upgrade to the titanium gliders, they are worth their weight in gold ! Highy Recommended
Cone/Spike decoupling gliders
My floors are engineered hardwood laid over a concrete slab. They’re not completely flat. Optimal speaker placement initially requires substantial movement to position them correctly. My speakers came with spikes and thin pucks with very shallow depressions so the spikes often would slip out of the pucks when moving the speakers laterally damaging the floor. These gliders have very deep depressions so the the spikes never slide out and make speaker adjustments a breeze. Additionally they decouple the speakers from the floor removing that unwelcome and audible interaction. Highly recommend for those who have spiked speakers and need to move or reposition them safely over wooden floors or carpets. The audible improvement with decoupling is an added bonus.
Great product but really too expensive for what it is . I suppose on reflection I would have been happy with my purchase if the large decoupling gliders were between 50-60% less expensive.Sorry Herbie’s Audio!
Cone/spike decoupling gliders
I ordered these decouplers for my spiked feet on my speakers which have found a new home on the second floor of an old barn house. You can feel footfall and movement in the floor easily and my bass seemed mushier. The change was noticeable and welcome. I like tight bass and I could be imaging this, but the whole image seems more cohesive …cool
Works as advertised
I selected the Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider - Giant / Titanium - Amazing product, well designed, beautifully built, and they work as advertised. The spikes on my speakers fit perfectly in the indentations, doesn't raise the speakers up to much like other many other products, and makes it incredibly simple to move large heavy speakers. Being able to easily place speakers to an exacting location, is in it's self worth purchasing them. In addition, the decoupling created a larger sound stage, and tighten up the mid-bass and low end. A little pricey, but "you get what you pay for" Thank you Herbies Audio Lab
Simple effective way to avoid poor speaker/flooring interaction resulting in faster and tighter bass.
