    Hey gang.

    A couple of silly questions that I need answered.

    I am moving into a hardwood floor apartment. I have tower speakers with metal spikes on the bottom (which are removeable). I am assuming that I should not have these spikes on when I place the towers on the hardwood...correct?

    Secondly, what is bass response like on a hardwood floor compared to a carpeted floor?

    And finally, any tips and suggestions on how to carefully move my 48" RPTV? I am on a strict budget and hiring pros is outta the question.

    Thanks in advance.

    carpeting/bare floors has pretty much 0 impact on bass. Much more on the liveliness of the room and reflections. You could either remove the spikes, or put a dime or something under each. It would be advisable to put down an area rug as well for the acoustics.

    Digital Video Essentials has a nice segment that shows the effect on audio that the room has. It is a pretty big impact when you have hard surfaces all aroun especially the higher frequencies.
