    Thinking of getting a new sub along the lines of Mj Pro 50 or Ref 100 but i'm concerned that as iv'e got a wooden floor with a 3 ft gap underneath that this increases the BOOM, iv'e got a downward firing Jamo at present but it's very boomy and wooly which is propally more down to the sub itself.Does anybody know if a forward firing sub will lessen the boom compared to a downward firing sub.Iv'e got a homemade isolation platform at present but it does'nt seem to help,any comments would be appreciated and i want to spend aroun 350 quid.

    Ta:(

    What's the isolation platform ?

    I'm interested because i'm in the process of looking in to this for my sub and laminate floor.

    It's a 2" thick slab cut to the size of the sub sprayed black which stand on small rubber feet from b&q. The subs on spikes.It looks good but does'nt seem to help the boom.The sub was bought on a whim though, and probally is more of the cause than the floor itself.Theres plent of threads if you search on this forum , good luck
