    Hi

    I have a Jamo sw-400 subwoofer (not a very good sub) which is vented and fires downwards onto a Laminated floor, sitting on rubber feet. I am going to try sitting the sub onto a piece of carpet, (spiked) to see if there is any differance in base and sound quality.
    Has anyone else tried this, if so what were your results.

    I wouldn't try it. I tried sitting my PS-1000 on a sheep skin rug, and it sucked out quite a lot of the bass. That's a bandpass design which only outputs through the rear. Unless you have real problems with overblown bass sitting it on a rug is probably not going to improve matters. Try sandwiching it between two concrete (or marble) slabs and see if this helps. Searching for slab and sub should bring up the relevant thread.
