I bought the separate rubber foot dampeners from SVS when I bought my SB13-Ultra's, do I still need these? The subs are forward firing but I have wooden floors.

I have the pc12-plus and ordered both the svs feet and this. I figure I'll try one, then the other, then both... And then decide what to return and what to keep. Someone on Amazon had a pic of their pb-2000 using both and claimed improvement.
I'm not sure the dimensions on the 13... Is this even big enough?

Edit: Looks like it would fit the sb13-ultra perfect!

my sentiment exactly... i've thrown out packing foam better than this... LOL
you can also buy 2"x12"x12" acoustic wall tiles for a fraction of this price,
and put 2-4 of them under your base.

Thanks for the alternative ideas. It's a deal if you want this product, though. If you want to try your alternative path, and you happen to have high density foam laying around, or some other options that suits you better, then that sounds like the way to go.
Deals on the eye of the beholder, and no arguing others might not like this flavor of Kool aid 😉

these came with my Mackies. Didn't know what they were called but price seems rich for foam.

This isn't just a piece of foam though. It has an actual wood frame. That's why it can support over 100 lbs, while foam would just sink under a heavy sub.

Even then this one won't support most 18" subs- for that you'd need something like this, which is almost 2x the cost:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

Now could you build your own wood frame, cover it, and add your own heavy acoustic foam, and then have a similar product for less money? Sure.

You can build your own house too. Or your own sub for that matter. You can also sew your own clothes. All cheaper than store bought ones.

Everyone has a value they put on their own time, and a skill level of DIY they are or are not comfy with.

I think these are bs. I tried one when I had my Hsu research vtf-15 and notices no difference. Also talked to others that claim no change.

What type of floor did you have? There is plenty of science behind using a damper, I'm not sure how it can be bs.

I had concrete, then on top of that platton, osb and carpet which the sub sat on.

Using the one I posted the amazon link to (bit heavier duty and more $ than this one) made a noticable difference on a larger sub than your Hsu.

It's not going to magically stop low frequencies from traveling through walls but it definitely helped with structural vibration type stuff vs sitting directly on the floor

I may not have read as much as I should have back then. I just went WAY bigger now.
