@Yrd when you say the metal thumbsticks can make thumbs sore I'm hesitating getting them. I do not have construction hands.

I think it's more like this:

Ok, I got a bunch of those included with my speakers. I don't have that much gear and none of it is stacked on another so I have no use for them.


Just the term isolation cone made me picture something else. How the hell do you use those cones you put around a dog, on your electronics.

Actually, I have now been adding the rubber feet for the botttom of chairs (so they don't mark the floor) you can buy at Home Depot to add space and they make everything sound 300% better.
There was something fishy about your numbers, so I did some research. I think you are buying the plastic chair bottoms, to ease sliding and reduce noise and marking. That's why your sound improvement is only 300%. If you use true rubber spacers, then you should get at least a 500% improvement.

Man I've got to get some of those spacers!

I have a pile of those BBC cones pictured above (the brass coloured ones), some ceramic cones (very expensive), and these Black Diamond Racing cones: http://www.musicdirect.com/p-383-bdr-cones.aspx

I bought them in university when I had succumbed to the snake oil of my local audio shop. That along with my $1500 Cardas ICs and speaker wire. Well, at least I am still using all that stuff.

The isolation cones when placed under a PS4 make it backwards compatible to all PS3 games.
