Who has de coupled their Loudspeakers from the floor ? If so how ?


I have been using Townshend Audio Seismic Podiums under my Sound Labs and Thiel CS 6s for a while now and must say how impressed i am with the sound quality improvements, for many years i have always used the supplied Spikes but must confess the Townshend Podiums are a revelation in my system.

I did read many positive reviews but wanted to experience the Podiums myself and i am so glad i did.

The Podiums were well worth the cost in my system, i could not live without them now.

My floor is a suspended wooden floor so maybe this is the reason but also maybe not.

Is anyone still using the supplied Spikes ?

If not are you using Townshend Podiums or any other Speaker Isolation product ?

Thanks everyone for your comments, please all take stay care and stay safe!

@pdreher, would you attribute that to the Sound Anchores, carpet, Herbies or a combination of different things? Just curious.
I started a discussion here. My final sandwich material between the two slabs of granite is high density sorbathane. Here is the link.

I decoupled my speakers with the supplied spikes, standing on ~ 1" thick granite disks, one for each speaker, standing on slate tile flooring and using silicon bump-stops in-between.
Without spikes the speakers sound quite bad, with wooly bass then being the main issue.

As prefer to call that coupling, not decoupling. 
@tooblue... I attribute the wooly sound to using the gliders on carpet.  While gliders are good for positioning speakers, I prefer the sound when the stands are coupled to the concrete slab.
