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.

Those arent really for isolation, check out something like these

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.

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