That was my main reason for purchasing these. It worked in my case, but my case is unique. I believe these are meant for users who have a subfloor (wood flooring) what the vibration travels through the wood. Concrete doesn't suffer from this nearly as bad as wood. Since my sub sits on top of my insert fireplace they worked perfect!

Yes they are the hard type. The sound path make the sub "float" you can literally put your hand on the sub and move it 1/2" in any direction effortlessly. It's kinda weird...

That being said, Interstellar was the first film for my sub to shake the floor in such a way that no other film I have watched before do so, and it does it very effortlessly. Movies like Transformers move the air quite well when getting low, but it doesn't do constant 30 second ~20Hz rattling like Interstellar does. This was fith the rubber feet installed. A great tactile feeling, indeed. Calibrated at 75dB as well (though I was probably playing it at 65dB).
The slam my SVS produces is more than adequate without the rattle vibration a lot of people like.

Eliminate a sound produced in a movie because we use isolation feet? A 12hz note is a feeling not a sound.
All this about the cost is ridicules...the cost is more than the manufacturing. I guess because years, months, days to "create" something that isn't part of the P&L?
The time and effort SVS spends in the R&D of their product deserves a pricetag as does my OPPO Bluray player...pretty sure I can buy a $69 player. Why would I spend $500?
