    By spiking my Servo 15 and perhaps even sitting it on a solid slab would this make it even better?

    At the moment i just have it sitting on carpet which is covering floorboards.

    is there to much boom with it the way it is.....???
    Some people moan about to much boom when on a wooden floor and put them on slabs.
    Not sure about spikes...would prob work just as good.
    I would say...if you dont like the boom or things shaking, then just turn it down a bit.....saves spending money on a slab (there comes the cheap skate in me)...

    You could try an Auralex Gramma platform to isolate your sub much better results than placing it on a paving slab or marble.

    You need 2 for a Servo 15 though, and at approaching £100 I doubt it's much better than a paving slab. Is the gramma platform a hoax? - sounds like an excuse to part with lots of money for little gain imho.

    However I would add that this is speculation on my part, has anyone here tried them?

    I use one under my sub, and felt that it reduced boom of my sub the bass sounded tighter and more well controled,

    The BFD is only £100 but is invaluable, why would the Gramma be any different at £100. I use 2 under my sub and they tighten the bass up plus having the extra benefit of less aggro for the neighbours. Lots of people with all sorts of subs have tried them and are happy with it, like all purchases of this nature you have to take the risk. The word "Auralex" is on the axis of evil list of words here so that's all the info I'm giving out :devil:

    I recieved a PM from Beekeeper the other day expressing (to my and i felt his? surprise) positive feedback indeed for the gamma platform.
    I await a more detailed analysis of results, but thus far Nic has, in my opinion been "on the money" on most aspects of my interest.

    Regards
