I got Klipsch SW115, in low freq the sub making rattle noise (At least i think its rattle noise). when i tried to put the sub on the bed the sound was clean.
As I understood, I should get an isolation solution.
I got two options, subdude HT for 130 dollars (Im from Israel, so this is the lowest price i found).
or the SVS Soundpath for 72 dollars.
I just want a product the get the job done.
What do you think?

Do you thing those products will actually solve my problem?
Ill try to be more specific, cause im not sure i explained myself, im not sure its rattle noise.
When I play songs or movies with low freq sound, the sub woffer make weird noise, sound like vibrate or something.
I recorded the audio while playing a song.

Of course none of us over the internet are going to know what exactly your speaking of so all we can do is {Best-Guess}.

It reads like to me your "Over-Driving" your sub.

You know to much power going to the sub .............

Or possibly you need to simply "Adjust" your {Crossover-Point} for the Low-Frequency going to the Sub.

Or your Sub is going bad maybe.

I am thinking neither of those two products are going to really solve your problem to be honest.

But when I put the speaker on the bed, the sound was clean.
I just used the Audessey setup, put the gain on 50, and crossover on max as mentioned in my denon manual.
I didn't adjust anything by myself.

those voices was starting at volume 70 when he sat on the wood floor, and when i put it on 85 on the bed, the sound is still clean.

When you moved the sub from where it was to the bed it changed everything. How did you decide on the original location?

I tried this sub crawl method, and my listing point is on the bed.
Anyway i tried to put it again in different locations, made a careful test this time, and Terry was right, the problem was in the speaker.
On the bed the is was less noticeable, so I didnt realized its still there.
I bought it second hand, but i got warranty, so tomorrow ill speak with the store, I hope they will fix it.

Thank you Terry, you saved me 72 dollars (:

Below are pictures of the Subdue product you were inquiring about.
I use it under a lot of my Subs & Rear-Speakers.


If I was spending my money and wanted to try a new idea it would be to go with the Subdue.

I personally have them under all my 4-Subs and under my rear speakers sitting on the stands.

They work well for my application.

If you look close you can see the Subdue isolation pads under all the Subs as well as the rear speakers.

I understand that a Subdude has a bottom surface of foam. Does anyone know what the exact material is? I have expensive oil-finished hardwood floors, and I know that there are certain materials that I'm not supposed to lay on top of the floors for long periods or else they might be stained or damaged. I had to throw out some carpet tiles due to this. Anyone else using a Subdude on an oil-finished hardwood floor (not poly finish)?

Just a suggestion and this is not intended as a cute comment.

Call the manufacturer and ask them then all the guess work will be out of the equation.

Just thought I would add my experience with Subdude. I just received 2 of the regular size Subdude II's and I can't believe the difference they have made. I have a smaller size dedicated HT room (11x13) with a 5.2.2 setup. Subs are SVS SB2000 and have Polk towers/center/surrounds. No room treatments and the room is in a carpeted basement with a drop ceiling. Prior to using these I would get rattling all over the place at low frequencies. Hard to isolate but seemed like it was coming from the canned lights, the walls, certain tiles, my Blu-ray shelf, etc etc. I just got finishing running a few clips from movies that were hard to listen to cause all the rattling and I've got zero rattling now. I wasn't expecting this, it's completely solved my issue. For $50 each this was definitely one of the cheapest, most valuable updates in my HT I've probably ever made. FWIW in case others are wondering about the benefit.

Just normal concrete pour with decent pad and carpet. The bass still shakes the room, and you can hear it outside the house. Seems like it's even tighter with more punch, but almost no rattling. I was watching San Andreas and there are a couple of scenes where I cranked the MV to about -10db and I think I heard the faintest rattle, but no where near as bad as it was before. I also tried War of the Worlds on some very low frequency scenes and rattle was barely noticeable. Huge improvement IMO. I just wish I would have heard of these years ago. I recently upgraded my 92" 16x9 screen to a 110" 2.35 scope screen and as happy I was with that transition, I'm almost as happy with this fix for my rattling!

Hard to believe a concrete floor could yield rattles elsewhere in the room from a sub placed on the floor in the first place, let alone rattles then being ameliorated by a cheap piece of foam and board (well not really cheap, they charged $50 for $5 of stuff). Or is your sub mounted elsewhere? You sure you don't have some expectation bias going on here?

Nope. Subs sit on the floor. I've been living for this rattle for quite awhile and just recently started googling potential solutions. After listening to San Andreas a couple of times I was pretty unhappy with it cause it seemed to do it through 50% of the movie. Now it doesn't. Even my 18 year old and his friends made a comment, so no, I don't think it's a case of expectation bias. I have no issue admitting when I feel like I wasted money on something, this is not the case. My guess is if my ceiling was drywall I probably wouldn't have had the issue in the first place. So thinking the drop ceiling with all the metal, canned light fixtures, etc. was probably the culprit,

Just boggles the mind a bit. I can't imagine that the difference between on and off the piece of foam made any difference whatsoever on a concrete floor (let alone with pad and carpeting beneath the sub). I guess I'd have to had been there since even on hardwood floors I don't have those kinds of issues.

so I own one of these for my living room and just got a L12 sub for my computer room. For now my sub is situated on two foam blocks. Would I see any improvement with the subdude or babygramma considering Im using the packing foam which seems to be very similar?

This is just my (Opinion) but I think the material in the Subdude is different.

That being said, would you notice any appreciable difference, ???
You would just need to try it and decide for yourself.

I like mine and several other members also like the product.

There are other members on here that have said and think the product is a total WASTE of a person's money.

If you have the monies, order it and give it a try is my recommendation.

I have a Rythmik L12 sitting on a subdude. I used to have my Mirage BPS 400 on it, but it was too big and heavy for the platform (I would need the SubDude HT for that one) but it works well for me on my wood floors.

Nick,

I have 4 of the Mirage BPS 400 Series Subs.

They are all on the Auralex Larger Subdudes.

In my case I even have their product under my rear Speakers on the Custom Stands.

I have a HSU subwoofer which rattles the s*** out of my room and neighboring room. Its too big to fit on a Subdude II, but will fit in a Subdude HT tho. I'm srsly considering a Subdude, my dad is in the USA now. I think $80 for it is very very steep. But if it mitigates the problem will be well worth it =(

Well one thing is for sure if you don't even try it you'll never know if it would work or not.

I say give it a try !!!

Nice system Terry! I saw that when I quickly browsed through the thread before posting. You don't see too many BPS-400's out there these days, still a great sub IMO! I won't replace it until it dies.

I've had good luck with Auralex products in general, I also use their ProPads under my studio monitors in my computer system, and they made a significant difference in that system.

Nick,

I really like the Mirage BPS-400 subs.
I have had mine for years now and they do IMO an awesome job.

And your right you don't see them any-longer.

I have no complaints at all about the Auralex products.
They do for me an excellent job with keeping the Bass Vibrations from going over into the kitchen cabinets and Rattling the dishes.

I love Auralex subwoofer risers. I have 3 Auralex Subdude HT and 1 Auralex Gramma V2 at home for my four subwoofers. I also have 4 Auralex Great Gramma at work (church) that I use with a pair of Meyer Sound 700HP subwoofers. But for monitors, nothing like isoAcoustics Stands.

For those in this post that have fiercely criticized Subdude and claimed they are worthless -you are mistaken.

I invested in two of these a couple of years ago. My HT was on second floor. Subdudes very noticeably improved the sound quality of my subs (2x HSU VTF3-MK5).

I had two closets in separate rooms. The closet doors were the metal folding kind that hung from little plastic wheels on runners at top of closet entrance.

Both doors had obnoxious rattles during bass-heavy scenes. As soon as Subdudes entered the equation, the rattles were completely gone.

Thanks Subdudes.

I had a couple of Subdude HD platforms. They did nothing to help sound quality.
They could not take the weight of my small subs either.
