I had the spikes in place, but then I tried some different locations in the room so I removed them for the move. I feared the worst from those big teeth while wrestling with the beast. Could do some real damage. Anyways, it's been sitting directly on the carpet ever since. I don't seem to notice any difference.

Not to hijack, but have you found any advantages in using the subdude?

I use the spikes on carpet just so the sub wont walk away. But it's a pain if you have move it. I just looked at the thread for the SubDude, how do you like it?

To be honest, I can't say I've noticed a HUGE difference with the SubDude. I know that, with the 500, at times, I still can feel my floor shake (or, at least, that's what it feels like). However, that shaking could be much more pronounced without the SubDude. Also, it gives me peace of mind in that I feel, I'm doing my best not to disturb my neighbors. For $50, I feel it's worth a shot, but I can't guarantee the results. Craigsub uses one. PM him for a more educated opinion.

I'm all hooked up...Set crossover to 80.. phase 0... volume is about at 9 o'clock The bass is very clean Amp output at 4 It is loud but not boomy It is very impressive , a tight clean sound so far. I put on Cream's Reunion dvd. It is pretty amazing. I played the explosion scene from Master and Commander. That too was pretty darn good. I am thinking I can get a bit deeper and more body rattling bass if that ,makes sense...I am 12-13 feet away from the speakers. Do I turn up the volume on the sub? or do I increase the amp output higher than it is? I am sure when my wife comes home this will be an exercise in futility. I am now upstairs at the keyboard and it is shaking LOL! I guess it's louder and deeper than I thought!! I will post in a few more hours when my "ears are broken in" What I do know is I did a side by side with thge old Bic and what a difference.....
