I auditioned the R263's for a few weeks but ended up returning them. I thought I was going to keep them but ended up with the JBL 580's instead. In anticipation of keeping the R263, I made a pair of larger stands because I too was worried about stability. The rubber feet can be left on, you just screw the bolts into the holes where the carpet spikes go. They're not my best work but look good when attached to the speakers. They do help with stability. I don't need the stands and could send them and the the mounting hardware to you just for the cost of shipping. Or, just steal my design.I have my infinity R263 in the living room on tile floor. Because the speaker is tall and narrow, they are not very stable. My daughter accidentally toppled one. It got some physical damage ( scrapes and scrathes) but nothing major luckily. I felt really bad since the speakers were just two months old then. I have asked my family to be careful around there but I still have a nagging feeling that this might happen again. So I want to get creative. I wonder if anyone has created a solution for this. Know there are thread holes in the bottom for the spikes. I wonder if I can put a wider wood base and screw into those holes. Anyone done this already and are happy with it. Can you post some pictures?
