Footer/Spike Thread Question
« on: 14 Sep 2018, 09:25 pm »
I'm wondering if anyone knows what the thread size is for the plinths on Song3's? I'm considering trying a set of IsoAcoustics Gaia footers for my speakers.

My house is about 60 years old and the wood floors are very springy and squeaky. I feel like I'm losing a lot of bass energy into the floor. When I'm downstairs, in the room under my speakers, I can hear a lot of vibration and bass from the speakers above. I might try some granite slabs under the speakers but I'm dealing with a considerable WAF so not sure those will fly. I figure the footers won't be noticeable and I've heard good things. Anyone have any experience with the Gaia's or something similar?

Thanks! What did they do for you? What speakers are you using them with?

I have them on two sets of SS-10's. One in my studio that is on pier and beam wood floors and another in my "game room" with concrete floors. The Gaia's helped both systems a lot. I expected the biggest change in the bass and it did tighten up the bass in both rooms. The bass in the studio is not as muddy and every note is articulated, still not as solid as in the game room. The greatest change however, was in the mids and imaging. I am an imaging freak and both systems reacted the same. Much more 3D in every way, bass, mids and highs. It isn't just that the bass got out of the way, it is like a different set of speakers.

Thanks. I think I will try a set. I'm going to try the Gaia 3's since they're rated up to 70lbs and the Song3's are right about 70 pounds.

Are you using Gaia 2 or 3?
