I want to use the spikes that came with the RC 70's on a ceramic tile floor but the small discs are hard to position and the rubber bumper on the bottom of the disc slides off too easy.

Anyone find a different solution?

Those discs are really a pain in the ass. I tried using them on my hardwood floors and the speakers were very unsteady.I ended up cutting a small pc of carpeting and put underneath. Works well.

Thanks! I thought about that but someone said the spikes tey thought the spikes would penetrate through the carpet.
I guess it depends on the carpet you use?
I think I'll give that a try. Looks like it works well.

Would make for an awesome front timbre matched system.
Hey folks, thought I'd give an update - I purchased the RC-10s and they are, unsurprisingly, an huge upgrade over my old e:XL speakers. I've been going back and listening to old albums just to pick up details I've never been able to pick out before. Thanks for the advice - at $250 I don't think you can beat these speakers.

I wanted to also add that I've been eyeing the RC-LCR since the RC-10s arrived and I just saw on Frys that the price is down to $250. Seems like that's also a solid deal since it was $429 when I checked it last week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I made the e:XL to RC upgrade as well. Night and day difference by far. No other upgrade I have made since has been as significant.

I am looking for a home theater setup almost exclusively to be used for tv/movies. I had been waiting for the Infinity primus p363s to go back on sale, and they just did for $200/pair so I ordered. I was looking to purchase the PC351 which just dropped down to $180. But now, with the recent Frys price drop, I am considering going RC-70 and RC-LCR front setup or 3 RC-LCR. What are your thoughts? I've seen great reviews praising them for the performance when they were much more expensive, so those seem to say they are a steal at these sale prices. It does seem weird how there seems to be unlimited supply of these when they were supposedly discontinued awhile back, and that they go on sale so cheap compared to MSRP regularly. I had also considered the Emp Tek line when I was in the research phase, and with their current Black Friday sale, they also have me intrigued. Room is fairly small at roughly cubic feet. Speakers will be paired with a PC12-NSD I already purchased from SVS during their closeout sale.

The Primus line has long been considered one of the best bang for the buck performers out there, they probably way outperform their price point and it may or may not be a sonic upgrade to switch the RC. However, the RCs absolutely crush the Primus in aesthetics and build quality. Remember the RC-70 were originally $2,000 a pair. The quality of the cabinet, drivers, binding posts, magnetic grills vs cheap plastic pins, etc.

So if that kind of thing matters to you, go with the RCs.

Out of curiosity, why even use the spikes on a solid surface floor?
