My room is 12.46 feet across and 16.40 feet long. Not a large room but enough to shake the family up.

Getting any speaker up off the floor should make things tighter, as can getting it away from side walls and corners. The reinforcement of the floor would tend to help create boominess. With a sub, that may be more important since it goes so low.

Do these subs have feet? Hard to tell from the photo.

Well, I finally pinpointed the problem and stuffed black dress socks between the shelfs and sides. Voila! No more vibrations. Problem solved.

I am one with the HT ninja. Oh yes, using the old zen trick of the sock, and summoning all that is HT, I performed the very rare and elusive technique that is known in secret societies as the "hifi tweak that cost next to nothing." Skidoosh!! Thank you HT ninja.

Lol. You know if this was packaged and marketed right, it would sell. Haha, I can just picture the internet a-blaze as audiophiles everywhere praise the "Audiophile Vibration Reducers" incredible performance and relative cheap price.

Looks like ol' Wabo can start picking out his retirement beach front property in Hawaii.

I was hoping to sell enough of my Vibration Reducers to buy a small plot next to the sprawling Franin Estate.

Sadly, as it is, ol' Wabo will be lucky to retire in a van down by the river.

It has nothing to do with Franin's system, but I have finally figured out a way to post photos from my computer !

P.S. No, I don't have anything on anyone here, don't worry.

You must have the same work police that I have at my work. It is actually an embedded YouTube video. But it shows up as a white picture if your company blocks access to YouTube. So you need to check back again when you are not at work. It is a funny commercial about missing socks.

Yes, at home I see it. Pretty good! But, I thought the missing sock was a laundromat phenomenon. People actually lose socks at home?

But if you're worried, does that mean you have something to hide...? Perhaps an Engelbert Humperdink DVD or something in your cabinet?

Hi Frank,

Your system really looks amazing! The nice clean look without any AV gear in the HT room looks really nice. I'll bet the room can get really dark now.

Your setup continues to impress. Thanks for sharing.

It's several rungs down the awesomeness ladder from the Franin compound. But you guys are more than welcome to stop by my van. It will be parked down by the river. It might get a bit cramped with all off us in there. But hey, the cozy quarters will give us a chance to really get to know one another.

pcweber111, will be there in his van, also parked down by the river. Let the debauchery commence.

Nice updated pictures. Now I really hate you. That looks like a fantastic room. I hope to have my center back soon. Now I am in the "I need a new HT pre but nothing fits my needs" mode. Hopefully soon something will be coming out. Again, awesome room.

It ain't easy being green.
