Anybody putting patio steps on top of their sub if so how much weight is enough.
It never even occurred to me. Should not a well designed sub not need weight on the top?
My tempest weighs over 100lbs, but I did try and put a 155lb weight on it once and hear the difference. Yep, I would stand on the sub using my own body weight. No difference in a heavy sub. I'd try it with a small sub if I wasn't afraid it'd collapse. The simplest test is: First you stradle the sub with feet on ground and listen, then stand on sub and listen... I wonder if I'm the only one who tried this?
THANKS I iam just going to leave mine alone.
Ever try an anvil? Otherwise, I'm coming from the same planet as Lew.
I've seen a few "small town" salesmen put a big bag of lead(? something) on top of the subs in their sound rooms. Same principle as the cement block I guess (but less scratchy ). Seems a properly built enclosure would not benefit much. Maybe a cabinet built too light might sound a little better, but I think there would be a better solution. BTW Chris, if I straddled my sub, I'd be 3 feet off the ground!! , but it would sure sound and feel cool for a little while!
Try spiked feet on the sub first.
