    doesnt really matter where you put your sub, although the usual place is underneath your desk in the middle, sub isnt directional so its doesnt matter, if its rattling stuff, either find whats rattling and secure it, or turn the sub down. better to produce at lower volumes anyways

    ~Remove everything from your room other then the sub, nothing should shake then. If it does still shake, smash your window making sure to not cut your self and remove all the glass left in the frame using heavy duty gloves, unscrew both the main door's and any cupboard doors' hinges. Remove said doors.

    There will defiantly be no rattling now. :)

    it does matter where you put your sub

    have it in the middle of the room somewhere and not in the corner

    also turn the sub down if its got controls

    and 50hz?

    thats shit

    ive got some mrodaunt shorts made in 1975 that go down to 37hz and they arent that big either

    been done before.

    I've heard you can get spikes to put on the feet of your sub that channel the vibes down through the spike giving off no excess, might try that
