I'm using 3/4" thick wood and its sort of hidden. I made sure the wood was slightly larger than the bottom metal frame but smaller than the dimensions of the couch so the wood does not stick out and is only visible if you look under the couch.
Is your floor carpeted or tile/hardwood?
Also, I take it you don't have the room for something like a S1801 directly behind your MLP? That would give you a similar feeling of having a room full of 18" subs. The near-field is pretty intense. It is comparable to a Crowson I have and actually more intense with some content being on a floating/suspended floor it can bounce my hand of the side table I use for mouse pad to control my HTPC. Plus using it gives more impact in the midbass than the Crowson. I just prefer the near field sub overall to the Crowson. But I know many people do not have the room for one or don't want it because of aesthetics.
