DF is potentially safer if you live with psychotic midgets that try and ruin everything you own with saliva-soaked fingers and rusks. You're better off with DF on a hard floor though.

Hi lechacal .....what do you mean by hardfloor?
I have 22mm woodenfloor raised 15cm from the underlay concrete floor with some insulation inbetween is this considered a hard or soft floor?? :confused:

I mis-typed before . The last DF should have been FF. Shan't bother editing it now.

I would have said it was a hard floor and recommended a FF sub, but I've just read another discussion in the forum where someone who appears to know what they're talking about said it really makes no difference.

I suppose it comes down to whether you think a FF is more vulnerable to damage or looks better/worse than a DF.

When I was reseaching my sub, the consensus seemed to suggest that DF produced some undesireable (reverb) results if being sat on a wooden suspended floor and FF might be more favourable.

This can be helped by sitting the sub on an isolation pad (such as the Auralex GRAMMA).

Also FF can have the direction of the driver moved more conveniently than the DF as rotating the DF will not move the direction of the driver. This is only really applicable when trying to find the best location for the sub when integrating into your setup and for room issues.
