    I had two for my dual XXLS400 subs. On suspended floor yes, on concrete, probably not so much, although you could probably make your own for about £10 as it's basically a bit of MDF wrapped in fabric with foam on the bottom :)

    i was thinking this this morning.
    Ive gone from a forward firing sub to a down firing sub and the difference is rather disappointing.
    Ive tried slightly different locations and tinkering but its just not the same. My conclusion is that its firing down into a floor with a ton of laminate and underlay thats somehow absorbing the sound.

    LOL i wish that was an option. but couch is right up against the back wall. The curse of the UK small lounges. So does putting a square chunk of wood or even a paving slab under these help?
    Gone from PB2000 to a PC2000 like yours

    I tried a lot of front firing subs years ago,but due to the only place i could place them (by an old window frame) they used to rattle the frame like hell.
    So by chance got a couple of Rel Storm subs,which works really well in my flat,but decided to downside them a bit,so went for the smaller T5i,they work great,but was wondering if the risers would help,stopping some of the sound from going downstair,i live in a flat :(:)
