yes

the single driver in the v1500 will cause the cab to vibrate...not a ton..but way more than the inert xs30.

the auralex will not help that vibration...but CAN limit the cab vibration from being transferred t the floor...but so will cheap rubber RUBBER FEET that are used to reduce vibrations for computers...no need to spend all that $$ on auralex pads

Are the feet on the cabinet enough, or are there aftermarket ones you recommend?

Is the sub going to be placed on carpet or on a hard floor?

If it's on carpet, you won't need anything extra. If it's on hardwood, you may want to add some extra rubber feet. In any case, I would wait until you actually get the sub and see if you have any issues at all...you probably won't.

Brian from my experiences with the single driver of the XV15 or the dual front facing V3600 there is still little to no movement of the cabinet even on these. I had a glass of water on the XV15se and had the sub running pretty hard (some bass demo scene) and there was nothing going on in the glass. These sub cabinets are pretty darn stable.

I have my V1800 on a hardwood floor (laminate actually) and it doesn't vibrate at a level that is noticeable. I have an Apple router on top of it and its in the same spot it was placed on that great day I joined the family aka delivery day. No need as for anything else other than what PSA is using. If it was vibrating the router would be moving since Apple changed their design a few years ago - tall and fairly slender. So way more must be a few ripples in the glass of water

P.S. Like those Volts on the ceiling, I envy your ability to do that, no way that gets past my wife.

Somewhere on here I saw a guy buy a shipping container and turn it into a home theater in his backyard....he didn't bury it, but that would be pretty damned soundproof.

Could you rest your main (L&R) speakers on top of one of these PSA subs, instead of putting them on a stand??

Would that work OK?

FWIW, I have a picture frame of my wife and I on one of my XS15se's that has been shaken off several times. I guess YMMV!

stuff will slide off the top of them fairly easily when driven full tilt. I do agree they will play pretty loud with no vibration...

My wife had a fit when the DTV dish had to be moved into the middle of the backyard due to the growth of our neighbor's tree. She calls it the giant dildo, wonder what the shipping container would get nicknamed?

I guess I just never opened the sub up enough. Well….I can fix that!

I'm going to test this out sometime when no one else is around (my XV15se is now in the living room so I'm going to have to wait until the wife is out of the house).

thats where I had my HT way back when I had my xv15...maybe it was exacerbated with it being on a suspended wood floor? idk

here is my old setup in our first house (looking back on it...man my wife was understanding...and this was before dual xs30'shere):

That looks eerily similar to my living room setup except I have towers and not the bookshelves but the over all look is very similar.

That's a good point about the suspended floor. Before my XV15se was on the concrete basement floor but now it is on the suspended living room floor. So maybe things will vibrate off now.

I'm actually excited to conduct this experiment…now I just need the opportunity.

Yeah, kind of a let down...but still a good idea. I think you should do it Hop!
