    Hey guys I just got my SVS 20-39PC-Plus and I love it. The only problem is that its vibrating against my hardwood floor. What is the best thing to use to stop the vibration? I have a towel underneath as a temp solution. Does SVS sell anything like rubber pads?

    Ferdiand,

    We'll send you some super compliant 3M synthetic rubber feet. It's rare that they are needed but drop me a line and we'll get you some.

    They are included with PB subs, but will do wonders for PC type subs placed on uneven or slick/loose wood floors too in thos cases where the stock foam rubber base plate pads are not quite sufficient

    To bad the Sub will CREATE uneven or slick/loose wood floors [​IMG]

    BTW - I finally got around to watching the Darla clip in Finding Nemo! OH MY GOD!!!

    I'll never do that to my fish again! LOL

    I use a Gramma riser, tried the rubber feet from SVS, but this works much better. The sub still bounced under extreme conditions with the rubber ones.

    The Gama Riser is just a sheet of MDF attatched to some high density foam rubber. I'm sure you could build something similar and custom to the size you need for alot less money.

    Sure it is, but for $40-50 at Sam Ash Music or Guitar Center, I'll save my time and have a better looking piece.
