    Not sure it this is the right location for this thread?

    I was reading some information about placing a HT subwoofer on a stand that was filled with sand. I have my sub on a concrete floor covered by carpet, should I investigate the use of a sand filled stand. Will this increase the sound quality of my sub. It my understanding that this will allow the sub to move the air/pressure in the room not the floor or walls.

    Thanks in advance for all comments/help provided.

    Mark.

    Since your subwoofer is already on a concrete floor, I don't think you have to worry much about it moving the floor. It will always move the walls, and I believe the only way to lessen that would be to change the wall themselves, by making them stiffer/thicker/etc. I don't feel there would be much difference by placing the subwoofer on a sand filled stand, but I admit this is speculation. I guess it's not an expensive modification if you do it yourself, so I say try it and find out. Just keep in mind that subwoofer placement in the room and listener placement will have a much greater effect on the sound.
