I'm serious here -- anyone out there ever experienced a subwoofer shaking loose nails in flooring? My living room area has hardwood floors and I'm concerned that a big sub might shake the subfloor loose. I already have squeaks in carpeted areas and the place is only a few months old :-/

I have a 120 year old house with a "suspended" wooden floor. I bought the EP350 sub. I haven't noticed any loosening of floorboards. I am building speaker isolation "sandboxes" for the EP350 and my M60's. Auralex has "MoPads" that reportedly do a great job at isolating the speakers. So, if your concerned, just isolate 'em, which in theory will improve their sound anyway...

I have hardwood floors upstairs, and downstairs have an EP600 and twin 350v3's, not an issue, unless your running the subs way to hot.

I'd have mine right on the hardwood floor FWIW.

I don't think your going to have an issue, subs aren't like jackhammers. \:\)
