    Right now the sub is just sitting on the carpet. Will raising it off the floor help the sound quality? What local B&M stores would carry rubber feet or spikes?

    I'm getting ready to do the polyfill mod. I would like to do the feet at the same time if I have to do any drilling in the bottom of the cabinet.

    Thx.

    Spikes should tighten up the response if it's sitting on carpet.

    This is subjective to my ears only but I added spikes to my
    SA-WM40 and it did seem to tighten up the bass. It was sitting on its rubber feet on the carpet. I had also done the polyfil but that was right after buying the sub. It also helped tighten up the bass. I also found myself turning down the gain on the sub after adding the spikes.
    I made my own spikes using t-nuts and bolts with the head cut off. I made the points by using a drill and grinding wheel. As always just my $0.02.

    Yeah...I probably should have searched for "spikes" also instead of just "rubber feet". Lots of info on spikes and partsexpress has a few options.
