Default Alternatives to speaker spikes?

It seems that all the speaker feet out there are conical spikes...so who make something a bit different? Different shapes, different styles? What are the alternatives that are still going to look classy?

Any rubber/neoprene/elastomeric/ type foot will keep most subs reasonably stationary without digging holes in your floor like a conical spike.

If you really want the sub immobilized, use epoxy to cement it in place :^).

Anything that looks good to you as they have no sonic qualities at all.

Try acorn nuts. I've used acorn nuts on 1/2-13 screws as spikes with good results. Stainless finish looks very classy.
