    My sub sounds awfull boomy, especially when watching movies. If I turn the sub down any I feel there is not enough bass.

    I believe the culprit may be the tile floor. The bare cinderblock walls probably don't help either. Is there anything that can be done to mitigate this? Put the sub on a patch of carpet? Put in an area rug?

    Also, what can be done to maintain adaquate bass in the listening area while inhibiting it from radiating throughout the whole house?

    As always, thanks for all the great help on this board

    Here we go again!

    You could try spiked feet, to tighten things up a bit. An area rug should also help. Heavy wall hangings or anything else that absorbs sound will also make things sound better.

    Treating the room with simple tweaks like these can have a profound effect.

    Good luck

    Couple this with sub placement. Try the above and also moving the sub to a different location.
