My dedicated HT is upstairs in a 4000 cubic ft bonus room that has a 2nd stair case leading down to the den. The bonus room is over the garage and part of the den, and i also have two subs. I love the sound this room gives me acoustically due to it's irregular shape and angled ceiling lines. The subs do excite the wood floors especially when they troll down in the 20hz & below material. You can really FEEL the intense low stuff in every seat (6) my favorite seating area is the couch. I sit about 18ft away from both subs, you could not pay me to move my HT down stairs!

If your floor becomes damaged because of the bass you have more problems than we can fix here!!!


I run two 10's in my upstairs room. Aside from a candle or two being knocked over there is no risk of any damage whatsoever.

I'm a big proponent of the Whole House Subwoofer System by BS Systems. This product installs in the attic by attaching to the the junction between the main supports and the rafters.


You can connect everything from the home theater to the buzzer on the dryer to the WHSS.


In particular, I love the sound of my clock radio with this extra bass. I wake up every morning to the local shock jock, his boomy voice resonates through the whole house, waking up my kids as well as my llama in the shed.


Truely excellent low extension! :)

...isn't that basically just someone selling an IB? To me I'd rather do a DIY IB with 3, 6, 9 15"s :D

I remember having my old system upstairs, when at my parents home. They complained like hell when the lights were shaking, I swear it was a conspiracy against my M&K subs..lol

I have the opposite problem, my HT is downstairs on a concrete floor and it rattles stuff off the wall in my daughter's room 2 flights up!

I too have my HT in a soon to be enclosed loft. The effect of "my three subs" (sounds like a '60's TV show) on the structure is like a room-sized Buttkicker! A nice, unintended consequence...
