My house is very old with wooden floors throughout. My system is in the living room (1st floor) with a basement underneath. Is there any advantage to building a short, sturdy speaker stand to get the sub, say, about 6 " off the floor? I've read that getting a sub off the floor can help reduce boominess and tighten things up some. I'd appreciate any comments/suggestions. I'm not in a position to upgrade so the best I can do is tweak what I have to squeeze the most out of it.
Or am I better off just getting a thick slab of marble and setting the sub on top of that?
The sub is now hidden near the corner behind a new, large chair so anything I put under it will be pretty much unseen and shouldn't cause too many WAF repercussions.
Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to read and/or respond to this.
