Historically metal spikes have been used to mechanically couple loudspeakers to the floor to ensure that there is no horizontal movement of the drivers during operation. After careful analysis of the materials used it is proposed that metal spikes are not the ideal solution, especially when the loudspeakers are on suspended wooden floors. The drive units introduce vibrations into the cabinet. As the volume is increased, the vibrations increase. Due to the acoustic impedance mismatch between the wooden cabinet and metal spikes, the majority of this vibrational energy cannot leave the cabinet and therefore remains until it is gradually dissipated directly into the air as heat. This prolonged cabinet vibration is audible and leads to an imprecision in the sound particularly at lower frequencies. The plinths allow this vibration to be transmitted away from the cabinet and be quickly dissipated in the acoustic foam. They also have the effect of preventing vibration from reaching the floor, which if wooden, may act as a further soundboard.
