    Can anyone suggest suitable feet to place under my Q200 to stop it moving across my wooden floor. I currently have the supplied tiny plastic screw-ins with some rubber underneath, but it still manages to creak and shift whilst in use.

    Thanks

    Could you not place a nice big marble/slate slab on top,I currently run 2 q200e which are sandwiched by 2 marble slabs,they dont move now :)

    I use 4 doorstops beneath my BK XLS200 which is of a very similar design, I've only tried this on carpet though.

    You could make a plinth of wood to put on the carpet, the sub won't move on the wood and the wood shouldn't move on the carpet as long as it's got some grain on it. Paint it black and it's camouflaged by the sub's own shadow :)

    Rob, what feet have you got on your q2's? and do you have a slab underneath and on top? How much did they cost?

    thanks for that. Very interesting. I got quoted around £100 just for two 30 by 30 slabs!
    This seems excessive. Would a few of the same sized floor tiles (10cm thick) stuck together do the same job?

    Thanks

    A cheap alternative which a few have tried is a standard concrete garden slab primed and painted in the colour of your choice,worth a punt

    managed to get 2 granite slabs 300x300x30mm and 3 rubber mats from atlanticrubber.co.uk The sub goes nowhere now and it does sound much tighter.
    Total cost £80. Looks much nicer too..according to the wife, so it cant be bad!
