• Introduction:

    The Soundcare SuperSpike is an all new-design, all-in-one spike foot. The unique construction of the SuperSpike eliminates the most common problem experienced when using a conventional spike: damaged surfaces, while offerings the benefits of isolating the equipment from external vibrations in the environment.Development History:The idea for the SuperSpike was inspired after the designer Terje Borgen purchased a pair of loudspeakers. The speakers were delivered with traditional spikes and also a set of ‘rubber’ feet. In the manual it stated that if you want the best sound, use the spike. However if you do not want to scratch your floor or surface that the speakers are placed on, use the (also supplied) feet. Knowing that life is almost always a compromise and when deciding on a purchase of home audio equipment many compromises are usually made, Terje felt this one area of compromise was not acceptable. Either best performance and dented / scratched surfaces or unmarred surface and a sacrifice of performance. There had to be solution, a spike that would offer the performance without the damaging side effects.

Either best performance and dented / scratched surfaces or unmarred surface and a sacrifice of performance. There had to be solution, a spike that would offer the performance without the damaging side effects.

    After an extensive examination of the market many factors were revealed. A majority of all floorstanding speakers, speaker stands, and component racks were being offered with spikes. In addition many electronic manufacturers were offering spikes and / or other materials to assist in isolating the component from external influences. The spike was a preferred design in isolating equipment because it applied the units own weight to an extremely small surface area, which reduces the transmission of vibrations to the equipment. Some solutions were being offered for the spike design. Most were made up of two parts, a traditional spike to be placed on the equipment and a spike base in which the spike was to rest (protecting the surface from the spike.) These systems offered a solution to the compromise, but also had there own side effects. Because of metal choices used some systems could only handle a certain load, as the spike would push into the base, damaging the base and spike. While also increasing the surface area the spike was contacting reducing the effectiveness of the spike. The most common drawback associated with this two-part system was just that, it was a two-part system. You would have to place all of the spikes and then line up all of the spike bases. For some smaller equipment this was not so bad, but for larger or heavier equipment this was a project in its self and usually required several people for the installation.
