I have an Epik Conquest sitting on Buttkickers heavy duty rubber riser isolators now...Obviously thats not a good idea for adding tactile sensation....Question is I want to make new feet made out of something heavy like oak....Do you think the larger the feet are the more tactile sensation will transfer to the floor? If so maybe 2 in the center too? Thanks...

Putting wooden feet on the sub will just make more annoying rattle in the floor. If you want to feel the bass through your couch without getting buttkickers, your best bet is to put some regular rubber feet on it and place it right next to the couch. If that doesn't get the couch and floor shaking then nothing will.

Only if you attach the feet to the cone and place the sub facing down. Tactile sensation has nothing to do with what the sub is sitting on.

Not if the placement puts you in a boundary reflection sourced null zone. Placement is key, but close proximity doesn't necessarily give the best results. Time to do the sub crawl.
