Subdude-HT AND SVS SoundPath Subwoofer feet?

So I have a SVS PB12-NSD on the third floor and am trying to reduce the amount of vibration and rattling in the walls and rooms directly below and adjacent.


I ordered both a Subdude-HT (https://auralex.com/subdude-ht/) AND SVS SoundPath subwoofer feet (https://www.svsound.com/products/sou...olation-system). Is it ok to use both or will the use of the feet negate the need for the Subdude-HT (or vice-versa)?

You can certainly use both - but you probably won't need both. Both products will serve to isolate and decouple the subwoofer from the flooring. Some of the buzz/rattle will be strictly from acoustic sound pressure from the subwoofer and not from mechanical energy transmission - so don't expect a complete removal of all buzz/rattle. But they should definitely help.

I have the SVS feet on my PB1000 and I live in a condo with, knock on wood, no complaints. I have had this thing pretty loud at times.

I have a PB12-NSD. The room is around 20ft. wide by 15ft. deep..

The seating positions are along one of the 20ft. walls and the home theater system on the opposite 20ft. wall. So the direct distance from the seating positions to the home theater system is around 10 to 12 ft..

The alternative route would have been to downgrade to something like the SB-1000. I didn't realize how much it costs though. I couldn't sell the PB12-NSD for enough to cover the cost of one SB-1000.

You won't need both. The SoudPath feet are more than enough to decouple the sub from the floor. Keep in mind, these sorts of things are mostly to keep wooden floors from vibrating. The effect is much less noticeable if you are on a solid foundation.
