Speaker stand spikes or something else?

I’ve got some Dynaudio Stand 20’s and they came with some nice spikes to push down through carpet to make them stable. However my carpet (Frieze type which is shag type carpet) with some memory foam type padding underneath doesn’t quite go all the way to the floor.

I am trying to figure out another way of placing my speakers on a solid ground.

I’ve seen some feet that have a way to balance themselves (almost like they’re floating) or I have some SVS rubber feet for my SVS sub that actually work very good for the sub but not sure they’d work for speaker stands.

I’m needing some ideas.

Buy/build beefier/larger spikes? and I assume those stands have enough mass? otherwise you should fill them with sands.

I filled them with lead shot. They now weigh about 60lbs each.
