    Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but here goes:
    Well, my new JBL S-312s make me extremely happy with a much improved low-end over my last pair of mains, but this improved low-end is shaking my listening room too much! [​IMG]
    I'm getting a very irritating rattle from parts of the wall and ceiling (there's foam/particleboard tiles in the ceiling, so getting up there is not a problem).
    I'm going to be building a sub soon (MORE rattle) and would like to lick this problem before then... what do you guys recommend to stop this?

    Do these speakers have feet of any kind or are they just sitting on the floor? Try these if they don't have feet:
    Spikes
    I don't know about improving imaging, etc... that they say in the ad, but it will reduce vibration going directly into the floor, while keeping the speaker firmly coupled. They worked great on my sub.

    I have jbl stdio series speakers and they sound great but i also have the same problem. They do have feet but i can feel them up stairs and in just about every room in the house. Mine are in my basment on a carpeted concrete floor. They sound good but shake my house. I dont even have a sub yet
