The whole idea is to make really quick and easy DIY isolation feet from leftovers which come under glass board and DIY amplifier monoblocks (Article yet to come). This is just temporary solution until I make proper isolation platform. This is pretty much all from leftovers including wood, foam and glass boards, so please don’t laugh.
What ya need:
– piece of wood, cork
– soft absorbing material, foam, squash balls, Sorbothane
– a bit of paint
– double sided tape
– glass boards
– wood or MDF board
Whether or not you may hear a difference…of course that’s a different subject.
Presumably this is for people with hollow wood floors or like that…..where the floor vibrates with loud audio passages (sound vibration)……minimizing vibration transfer.
Because with a stable concrete floor….any (too) soft isolation feet will in fact result in a GAIN of vibration in the unit sitting on the feet, because the ground is more stable (heavy) than the unit sitting on top of it.
The lighter object will succumb to vibrations before the heavier.
Imagine a bowling ball sitting on a hollow resonant floor, then vibrating the floor with large sound waves. The ball may move and/or vibrate with the floor. Now imagine a bowling ball on a concrete floor with large sound waves…..nearly no movement of the ball.
A bowling ball sitting on a vibrating resonant wood floor, but on top of some resonance-absorbing padding…..decouples the two, and seems much better than nothing at all.
