BTW, the whole ''if you need a subdude to tame LF radiation, then your sub is terribly constructed'' argument is worthless propaganda and has no basis in reality. Yeah, Bill, because HSU research makes such shoddy subwoofers rolleyes.gif Instead of making laughable and fictional arguments ike that, just admit that there are specific environments where the floor will act as a radiator, no matter how well constructed your subwoofer is. That is reality; don't debate it.

What sub are you using? Is it this?

You could always take a quick video of before and after if you feel so strongly about it. That might be interesting.

mm I see, that would be a very good idea imo, I would concur.

Just got a Auralex Subdude, 15x15

and i should of measured before ordering one. It's a little small for my vtf 3 mk 4 sub lol. Will it matter if the sub hangs over a little if i sit my sub on it? O_O or does auralex make different size?.

Yes they have different sizes.

 

Back up some on this Thread and you will see links to their home page.

Thanks,I'll scan the thread. Amazon only had one size, but thanks terry!.
post #1236 of 1311
If you cant find the right size its not going to hurt anything for it to hang over a little. As long as all the feet are on it youre ok.

Thanks 

i'll check it out^.  Yeah @Bond 007 the sub feet were not even on the sub dude at all. But i may have to send back to amazon. I'm kinda curious if this will stop the rattle in the room, Especially where the sub is sitting so close to the door way.

I got the Gramma from Amazon for $40 the other day, the subdude was too small for my Klipsch RW-12d. My original reason for purchase was to mute some of the vibrations our neighbors complained about. As soon as I installed it (if that's even the right word), the bass was much more obvious. I had to re-run Audyssey and drop the volume on the sub quite a bit from where it was before. The bass still sounds stronger, which I guess is good and bad for my situation...i.e. I can't figure out if the neighbors appreciate this upgrade or not? It seems to reduce vibrations but increase volume, not sure what to make of the results for my application.

yeah but i basically want to know if i made it better or worse for the neighbors lol! i seem to hear it more but hear vibrations less, so i'm not sure what it did (if anything) for them.

To be honest, its very likely they cant tell any difference.

Well not to be a clown on this end but I can offer you a suggestion.

 

Drop by your neighbors and listen for yourself and mention to all of them you made a change in the hopes of helping with the Noise.

 

At least at that point they will know you care or you would not have dropped by to check things out in person.

so what does the thing actually do? amazon reviews say it helps stop vibrations...heck so does the item description. but also it seems to be louder in volume, which seems slightly contradictory. i just can't seem to understand what has taken place now that it's off the ground...

let's just say i'm not real fond of the neighbors and they aren't real fond of me, so that's not an option smile.gif

I did. To absorb vibrations the sub creates within floors, walls, etc. But you contradicted that by saying the neighbors vibrating floors and walls (which are connected to my floors and walls) were not affected most likely. So that's why I ask, what is it doing?

I said no such thing. I said that the neighbors likely cant tell the difference. Meaning before and after you got the subdude. I mentioned no specifics.
Different people notice different results. If youve read this thread you already know that.
What its "supposed" to do is explained in the Subdude website.

Any benefits for front firing subs?

Well I read you on the neighbors.

 

I have had some like that over the years.

 

Sometimes best to just leave them completely alone if possible.

I just got a Polk PSW10 sub. I live on the top floor of a 2 story apartment building and am thinking of getting a SubDude in hopes that it will minimize the bass heard in the apartment below me. The Polk sub is 14"W x 16"D....the SubDude is 15"Wx15"D. I would not think the 1" overlap would not cause any issues, right?

Also, I see that there is a SubDude II available, which is the same size but is 1.75" high instead of 3" high...which one would theoretically be better at reducing the bass heard downstairs from me?

Thanks!

1" overlap wont hurt anything as long as all the feet are on it.

Thanks 007. Any comments about the small height difference between the SubDude and the SubDude II ?

imo It doesnt make any difference. Personally I would prefer the taller one for no good reason.

Since the subdude is not based on any known acoustical or vibration control science, you can do what you want and it will all work the same which is not so much.

Neither will have the slightest effect, either in theory or in practice. Those who have been caught in the trap of Gear Stockholm Syndrome will say otherwise. But they won't be able to offer a shred of proof, as there is none.

Wow, so it seems to some that this thing is a waste of money.

Not to pat myself on the back, but the two recent naysayers have some of the better technical credentials around. Go back up the thread and you will see our last more detailed efforts.
