Blue Horizon’s unique Spike Shoes MKII are made with a machined stainless steel outer casing and designed to sit beneath spikes of floorstanding speakers, speaker stands or other cones.
They serve a dual purpose, their chaotic cork and rubber mix protects flooring and aids resonance control, and they 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 from other spike shoes on the market.
Uniquely, the machined stainless steel outer casing of each spike shoe allows a spike loading of up to 100Kg. It is filled by a combination of specially chosen materials. This proprietary mixture of ingredients are 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 and an opening of the sound stage with greater micro dynamic information.

“… with the (Mk11) spike shoes installed the lower frequencies suddenly come across as tighter and better controlled… Blue Horizon’s Mk11 solution offers an effective means of protecting equipment racks and floors, while the resonance-controlling construction delivers impressive sonic rewards too.”
