    Subwoofer spikes, on a downward-firing sub? ;D (just poking fun at the critics of such a design) :D

    Whoa, there. Sound engineering is above me. I think experimentation is in order. :D

    Thinking About Upgrading Subwoofer

    I use a Velodyne is my media room and my roommate has a REL. Both phenomenal if you're willing to drop some bucks. Want to spend some money AND get the feeling of accomplishment? Sub kits! :D Parts Express:Dayton T1203K 12" Titanic Mk III Subwoofer Kit

    It would be pretty easy to cut MDF to size, grab some cheap car audio speaker box carpet and spray adhesive, and throw some foam "stands" on the bottom like that Auralex stuff.

    I used 18" square travertine stone tile for my kitchen counters from Home Depot. Can't find it on their website (a lot of things are in their stores and not online, though), but I can't help thinking that might work. Only thing I can think is that stone might be too thin if used under a sub...

    Grab a dB meter and turn it up to 11!!! :D Really, though, it'll probably pretty subjective.

    I'm curious how it sounds then. :) Plywood is definitely a pretty cheap way to go. All I can say is whatever you think works best, IS best! :D An article I found interesting on spike/cone use: Speaker Spikes and Cones – What’s the point? — Reviews and News from Audioholics From...

    I'm not qualified to explain it I think, but it has to do with carpet absorbing a lot of the sound. I just know first-hand that it works. :D

    Lemme show you some pictures of my roommate's gear. The spikes go through the carpet to the solid subfloor for the most efficient bass and sound possible. All the speakers in my house use spikes. The difference is noticeable to the trained ear. :) Either way, is sounds like you really...

    Not an issue of walking as much as sound quality. "By rigidly coupling a loudspeaker enclosure to a floor by means of a "spiking" system, it is possible to dramatically improve clarity, stereo imaging and tighten up the bass response. This is particularly effective on flimsy flooring and thick...

    Is this a good combo?

    B&H actually has a huge store in New York, if you want to split hairs with CC. They are authorized to sell a lot of electronics. I always forget to include shipping, so good point. Either way, I do have an older Sony 5.1 receiver and I still use it around the house even though I've upgraded...

    Is this a good combo?

    Does CC still do online price-matching? Sony | STR-DG820 7.1-Channel Home Theater Receiver | STR-DG820 Here it is for under $300, and B&H is a reputable online retailer.
