Discover Blue Horizon's award-winning range of system enhancing accessories, developed to help you improve your audio system's performance whenever you listen.
Blue Horizon’s Ultimate Spike Shoes are designed to sit beneath spikes of floorstanding speakers, speaker stands or other cones.
They serve a dual purpose, they protect flooring and enhance sound quality by suppressing resonance that leads to sonically damaging microphony in audio components. It is the second of these functions that sets them apart form other spike shoes on the market.
Uniquely, the aluminium outer casing of each spike shoe is filled by a combination specially chosen materials. The first of these is an extremely dense material placed directly beneath the indentation in which the spike sits, allowing spike loading of up to 100kg.
This is surrounded by a proprietary mixture of materials at opposite ends of the elasticity spectrum. The differing resonant frequencies of these materials ensure that resonance is damped equally across the audio band, rather than simply delivering a tonal shift. The combination of improved coupling and effective resonance control delivers clearly audible benefits, opening up the sound and improving definition from bass through to treble.
