I am building the following stand

http://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=89474.0

My speakers are located behind a false wall and an AT screen. The floor of the speaker area is going to be a piece of carpet or rug runner over concrete (no pad)

So I am looking for advice as to whether to use rubber bumps or spikes. I have been looking at the following rubber bumps because I have the tactile tranducers installed into my couches:

Should I pickup some of these for the stands? These are pretty expensive for what they are, cheaper suggestions are also welcome, that will work for my situation.

Why use either? Won't make any difference sonically.

Spikes and rubber feet (think hardware store) can be had cheaply enough if you do decide to use them.
