I have not as of yet gone to the Heils and I am using the super tweeter. I have two cats and the speakers tip over easily if one of my cats launches herself from the speakers. I saw some attractive bases on a pair being sold at Cannuck Audio. Are these aftermarket, and if so, who makes them. By the way the speakers are more dynamic if I use push-pull El84(15 watts/channel) than if I use SE EL84 amps(7watts/channel).

OUTRIGGERS are aftermarket.

Or, you could augment the Horn by filling the void with lead or Bb's.  Talk to Ed before drilling the holes!

Beware of slicksters from BC. Just sayin...

Why not just cut a base panel and add it to the bottom of the speakers?

If you want to hear how dynamic the Horns can sound, use a big solid state amp. Like 125-500 WPC.

I had the same problem. I filled the bottom with lead shot and put a ball cap on top. My cats won't jump up if they can't see a clear landing zone...John

Vrod, go to "Bed, Bath and Beyond" and pick up some cutting boards at least 12 inches square. Screw them to the bottom. Done!
