I wish I knew how much the box was going to weigh went it was done. I'm in a kind of a catch 22. If I go with the sorbothane feet I want them to be short as possible because the taller I go, the smaller (less internal volume) the box is going to have to be as the height of the granite over top of it cannot be raised. So without knowing the weight of the completed box, I don't know which how tall of feet I am going to have to buy to get the properly sized weight/ratio. In other words, if I deduct say 1/2" off the height of my box to allow for 1/2" feet, will the 1/2" feet be with the weight rating that my box winds up at. I can always try and use more/less of the feet as necessary to get the equation right, but its still kind of a guessing game at this point if it is going to work out properly.
Should I also some sorbothane pads between the back of the subwoofer box and the drywall?
Loud low bass will couple to the floor, the walls and shake your dishes, appliances and furniture regardless if you place the enclosure on a foam pad or compliant feet. It comes with the territory.
