    I built a relatively cheap isolation platform for my sub that works well and looks good :) Its basically a sandwich of materials; the base layer is a acoustic/thermal insulation tile (available in packs from most DIY stores) followed by a 15mm sheet of MDF, on top of this another tile and finally a large concrete slab. This is all upholstered in an off cut of the same black carpet used in my AV room :D If it can tame a SVS PB2+, I'm sure you can sort out something similar to control a Mission :thumbsup:
