I am not receptive to the spikes and the cones that Dali and many manufacturer's supply with their speakers. I have hardwood floors and of course there could be damage done with just the spikes. It's a difficult scenario trying to place the cones underneath the spikes when placing them, unless I am missing something in the setup.
I'm thinking of using the Auralex GRAMMA for a base and just set the speakers on top of that forgoing the spikes and cones.
From what I've read about the Auralex GRAMMA, it's not really a major difference in sound quality. However, its function is to decouple the speaker from the floor and provide a bit tighter base. My main objective is not to destroy the hardwoods.
I too have hardwood floors. I bought some sliders, for lack of a better term, from the hardware store. They are round disks with a smooth, low friction, rounded plastic bottom designed to let you move furniture without scratching hardwood floors, or slide things across carpeting smoothly. I have four for each speaker, roughly 1 1/4" diameter, and they fit underneath the feet of my 400s.
I have no idea what they do acoustically, but I have the 400s crossed over at 80 Hz to my sub, so my 400s are not handling the deep bass.
I wanted something to protect my floors, and to let me easily move the 400s when needed. I have much larger versions of these furniture sliders under my cabinet. All this lets me slide the 400s out of the way, then slide the cabinet (with all the electronics and the TV) away from the wall to gain access to the wiring.
