    Post Wood floor VS concrete

    As was posted wood will vibrate and these vibrations are too often not controlled.

    Impression of BIG bass,the floor vibrates and creates a tactile transducer effect.No Clark devices used

    Boom and unwanted noises caused by the non rigid floor.

    Now with concrete you may not get the shaking effect buy you get much cleaner bass and almost eliminate the nasty peaks created by a live floor.

    Where I live the floor resides on thick concrete and no squeaking or overblown vibrations take place even above 115dB(listening position)when my subs are blasting.

    WIth my PC systems its another story,as the subs rest on an elevated mezzanine.The bass effect is FAT but detail is much lesser.And yes the glorious shaking is all there.

    Any accurate system should rest in a room where the floor is very inert and where the room is treated with acoustic panels plus some bass traps. All thisin the name of purity and lack of colorations.

    Amen, brother - concrete slab all the way for the best bass.

    Throw rugs, upholstered furniture, wall fixtures, drapes, and such will break up room reflections in the mids and highs - any fear of that with a concrete floor is unfounded.

    All good stuff so thanks for the new thread.

    Will bass traps stop my house from vibrating? My subs are on concrete but the house wants to go to the moon. How do traps work?

    Post Bass traps and what they do

    No,bass traps will not stop the house(walls)from vibrating.Bass traps will gob some extra bass waves and preven nasty bass peaks in the room if placed with care(often in corners,behind rear ported speakers).

    Bass traps work wonders sometimes,and take the "boom" effect away.
