Can you use moving discs/sliders to move speaker towers around?

I'm going to be moving my speaker towers back and forth only a short distance (a few feet from their regular location) for my temporary setup and thought of the idea of using those magic sliders that stick to the bottom of heavy furniture. Do you think this would work, and if so what is the best brand?

Here are a few I've found

Theoretically it would work.

I am not sure what it would do accustically. People put spikes on towers to keep them from rocking/moving I feel like this would be the exact opostite and promote movement.

I think it is worth a try.

I cannot answer what is better as i have never used these.

Yes, it will work. I used them when I had to move my speakers around. If your speakers are heavy like mine and they have spikes they may pierce through the plastic so I just added a piece of scrap wood in between the spikes and the sliders. This works on carpet. For hardwood floors they make felt pads as asarose247 had mentioned previously. If not, you can always "walk" the speakers to the new spot carefully.

Don't remember where I got them, but probably something I happen to come across at a department or home improvement store. The brand doesn't matter really. You can even make some for yourself. Cut up a plastic bottle and fasten it to a solid piece of wood or other stiff object. You just need it to be able to slide across the carpet. For the base of my speaker stand I used Titebond wood glue I had laying around. I just coated the bottom of the base with several layers of glue to build up a thin smooth surface. Now I can just slide my speaker on its base anywhere in my house with carpets.
