PMC Twenty 23, p*ss poor plinth

Having recently taken delivery of the above PMC's I've been busy doing the usual fine tuning, positioning and trying to get my speakers bolt upright on a troublesome wooden suspended floor that in places dips 4-5 degrees in the matter of a metre. No easy feat! I've made myself some pretty smart granite plinths with adjustable brass feet, these seem to do the trick of providing a flat and weighty base on which to mount the speakers. Sadly upom experimenting with the PMC's decoupled spike equipped plinth all four of the inset nuts into which the spikes are screwed seperated from the PMC base. The screws were not over tightened previously, instructions followed to the letter, just fine adjectments made to match the spirit level. Needless to say for a speaker that retails at ₤2300 I find this unacceptable. The bods at PMC need to design a better method of supporting their speakers, it's akin to some shoddy, cheap Ikea job. I'm now considering removing the spikes from the plinths and placing the speakers onto my home made job directly.

I remember recently another forum member stating the screw holes on his new PMC 21 stands were not aligned correctly, has anyone else experienced similar issues?

A shame as I really appreciate the speakers themselves and couldn't be happier...

Yes, great idea! I've used blutac to great effect previously. Hadn't thought of that. thanks Matt ;-)

No problem. It's great stuff, adds stability and can be used in differing amounts to help find tune the level of the speakers too.

This is my only moan about the 23s.....I have had them three years and they take some getting right, the plinth is very poor and I am constantly retightening the spikes for some reason. I too have wooden floors.

Love the speakers hate the plinths

It's nice to know it's not just me then! I was rewinding, constantly trying to fathom out if I'd done something wrong. I've given PMC my verdict on the feedback section whilst registering them, The granite plinths I've put together will do a solid job and with the blutac there it may actually provide a little peace of mind knowing that the connection between speaker and plinth are that much more secure.
