The ones that Mirage gives you are nothing special, and are most likely generic themselves. If you live in Canada, try API. If you are in the US, Cable Company will have something for you.

I owned OMD-15s for five years. I wouldn't call their spikes generic. They came with the speakers and didn't look particularly like any aftermarket ones I've seen.
However, I'm not sure what the thread size is, and that's the most important part. I still have a pair of 1995 Mirage M5si's, and the spikes have 1/4" threads.
Klipsch bought API 9 years ago and started dismantling parts of it (e.g., Athena) immediately. 4-1/2 years after that (Feb. 2011), Audiovox bought the Klipsch Group and then they *really* finished off Mirage and took their Omniguide and whored it out to Jamo for a compact "lifestyle" satellite speaker. Spare parts are now leftover new old stock.
Here is the Klipsch Customer Service contact page. You may be able to find out the thread size, and maybe even get a set of spikes, but don't count on it. They took the last of the Mirage products out of production 4-5 years ago.
Parts Express carries several Dayton Audio spike kits here, but again, I don't know if the thread size is compatible.
If I had it to do over again, I would have gotten outriggers from Soundocity. It is difficult to get the spikes to pierce the carpet with Mirage's standard spike arrangement, and it is also tippy on thick carpet. Outriggers would solve both problems by widening the stance and exposing the spikes so you can step on them to punch through the carpet and pad to the floor beneath.
Thanks for all the feedback. I believe the thread size is 1/4-20 according to a speaker manufacturer matrix located on Brass and Granite Audio website. I found a number for Klipsch/Mirage Support and they have the spikes but cost is as follows ($18 per set of 4, so $36, plus $16 shipping, plus $2.50 tax for a total of $54.50) Will continue to look at the suggestions in the feedbacks from this posting. For that price I believe I can land some better spikes as it appears the Mirage spikes are not that great (according to the above inputs) Thank you all for your feedback

I may have been wrong about that. I was thinking of the spikes that were on the M series, and their regular traditional, box type speakers. I think the ones that go on the OMD-15 are visible because they stick out from the base of the speaker. Nice shiny chrome ones.
