Signature S60s - Leveling Speaker (physical level, not audio)

Hi all,

I have a Polk Signature set of speakers, using S60s as my front pair. My challenge is that my floors are uneven for the first foot inward from the wall. As a result, the speakers are a little off-balance, and face slightly toward the floor. Some speakers have adjustable feet or spikes for leveling, but the S60s have fixed non-adjustable feet.

Does anyone have any suggestions for something I can attach to get these level and stable? Ideally, since this is in my living room, I don't want anything that involves putting it on an unattractive platform.

Thanks!

    Get a plinth of some type (wood, tile, granite) and put leveling feet on that? I use cutting boards, believe it or not, to raise my speakers a bit, and leveling feet could easily be installed on the bottom.

    Furniture foot cups/carpet protectors or sliders in the front. Many sizes and thicknesses are available.

    I've been tempted to drill the plastic feet on my s55 towers for spikes. There's not a whole lot of meat there, but I think if you added a washer against the bottom of the foot to help distribute the weight, it'd be OK.

    After market "outriggers" could be a solution, but their kinda pricey.

    It was foolish of Polk to design those without adjustable feet/spikes.
