    Those padded screw in feet are worthless.
    Wrong...they are worth at least $10 drop-shipped from China.

    Wrong again. Spikes couple themselves to speaker cabinets, but they decouple themselves from flooring, with only the smallest point of a cone touching the floor.

    Coupling involves solidifying a connection between two objects, whereas decoupling minimizes the connection.

    Spikes may minimize the physical size of the connection but they actually make a much better connection for the transfer of energy. They provide a very specific channel for the energy to travel through and dissipate from the speaker.

    Careful, Jesse...the insinuation is that only your perspective is pertinent. Please explain how the tiny point of a cone barely touching a point of contact is considered 'coupling'.

    Push your speaker with your current glides on and it will slide easily because it's not coupled to the floor. Try that with spikes on and it won't slide because it's coupled.

    Push hard enough, and it will still slide...no matter what. 'Coupled' involves a mechanical attachment, not just gravity as you suggest.

    A protective disk (via gravity) is all that we can hope for with spikes. In the end, the fine point of a cone touching a protective disk is all that we can hope for.

    Sure, you push hard enough with spikes on and they will tear up your floor because they are COUPLED to it. I suggest you consult a few speaker manufacturers since you're having such a hard time understanding the concept.
