I was reading the thread on "spiking" and got intrigued. My RTi12s are on outriggers with rubber feet. They have been sitting on berber carpet, sinking in quite a bit and sounded pretty good with the new amp.
After reading, I placed them on a 20" x 20" x 7/8" inch of solid oak that I took out of our entertainment center that we bought in Germany way back.
Holy Crap! The damn things virtually disappeared. The bass was less pronounced, but tighter, mids seemed to stay about the same and the tweets tamed down.
Can anyone explain to me how this is possible? How did just doing this one little thing give them such a transparent quality?
