gonna buy 8 ...so i can prop up my 1 cf sealed box and 1.5 cf ported both loaded with alpine type s's

the ported is at 4 ohms

so you just drill a hole and pop it in? no sort of glue or anything

and with the sub the box is about 50 pounds i bet

They are used in HT to couple the enclosure to the floor.

Brass spikes.

Get ordinary 1/4" bolts that cost pennies and use a grinder to form a sharp tip.

Why not just build your own foundry and make your own bolts too!!!! :up2somet:

It's cheaper to buy a bolt at home depot for a few cents than to start your own bolt manufacturing business. :laugh:

Spikes in a home stereo system with a solid floor I can see. Spikes to anchor a subwoofer to the sheet metal floor of a trunk seems....pointless.

I guess if nothing it will keep the box from sliding.

They aren't made for use in a car.
