I don't have the clearance for a Subdude platform and I'm wondering what level of isolation I can expect from these rubber feet from Parts Express? Would felt tape under each help? Thanks.

These pads are a great find (thanks Jay1 cool.gif) and IMO, provide more effective isolation and are cheaper and than great gramma or subdudes for most applications. I installed 6 of the 1.5" 50 Duro pads on each of my JTR Orbit Shifter subs (177lbs ea) with excellent results.

Opinions are not facts.

Those Duro pads look like they would work well but paying $26 for 8 rubber dots doesn't sit right in my head...
