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.

Sliders

I love the sliders. Use them for everything that touches the hardwood floor. Makes it easy to adjust speakers and move things out of the way for short distances. Highly recommended!

Really made the bass more clear

I have a set of Neat Motive SX2 speakers, these have a woofer in the bottom that goes to the floor. I live in a fourth floor Brooklyn Apartment with wood floors and my bass was muddy-popped the Herbies on and everything got much more clear, with the added benefit that the floor will vibrate less and be better for my downstairs neighbors. Highly recommended!

Cone/spuke decoupling glider

Transforms speakers: listenable difference in bass, mid tone and high frequency music. A clear improved soundstage. Reduces unwanted resonance in room, and makes speakers easy to move for perfecting their performance in the room.

Simple quality

These arrived quickly and are working fine in protecting our hardwood floors and speakers. They are high quality, if a little costly, and seem to completely isolate the speakers from transmitted low frequency vibrations to our flooring.

Giant Threaded Sliders

My speakers weigh 265lbs apiece. When on spikes on carpet over concrete, it was almost impossible to make minor adjustments to speaker placement - a necessity for ideal stereo imaging. With a set of these sliders in place of spikes, shifting these beasts around is a simple and easy task. I have left the sliders on permanently as the sound quality is better, likely due to ideal speaker positioning. Stability is not an issue due to the overall weight. I am now able to continue to experiment with speaker placement without the previous major hassle. These sliders are relatively inexpensive and do their job perfectly. Highly recommended.

Gliders for Wharfedale Linton Heritage speakers

Really great product! The gliders made it super easy to move my speakers around to find the best placement for them.

Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider (Brass)

Replaced spikes mounted on composite of sheet plastic and cardboard, over Pergo-surfaced second floor placement, under a pair of old ProAc D25 speakers. Cosmetically: Total winner. Glider functionality? Total winner. Sonic effects? Better than expected. I truthfully didn’t expect much...the low bass is a bit tighter, and mids and upper-mids are both a tad richer, yet more articulate. The big win was reducing a boundary effect as I have an asymmetric speaker placement - both equidistant from back wall, but one is in a corner. The corner/boundary effect is reduced, although I still have to rely on my balance control (Amp is an old Bryston B-60) to maintain image integrity. Overall, a definite 5 stars!

Cone/Spike Decoupling Glider great improvement for AMP stands

Purchased new Amp stands that were provided with spike pads were way too small only metal discs the size of a nickel. Upgraded to the large brass gliders. Instant noticeable difference in the sound reproduction with greater detail and clarity. Especially in the mid to low bass. Also made the amp stands easy to move when needed. Great product.

That was worthwhile.

I bought 8 of these little beauties in the cheapest (brass) finish, but they look great to me. It's such a pleasure to be able to slide my speakers over my carpet to their optimal listening position. For some reason, despite all the positive reviews, I didn't think the gliders would work as well as they do. And, do you know, this may be wishful thinking, but imaging seems to have improved and everything sounds more coherent. This is not what I bought the gliders for, and even if it is a bit of psycho nonsense on my half, I'll take that benefit, thank you. I'm in the UK, and the brass gliders come to less than the £135 threshold before VAT and customs duty is charged. So nothing extra to pay on the cheaper version. The more expensive versions may break that threshold. Just something for UK buyers to be aware. Also, the gliders arrived via UPS surprisingly quickly (Just 8 days).
