Default Muffle subwoofer ?

Do you guys have any ideas how I can muffle subwoofers from my computer and from the home theater ?

The neighboor right under me was a pain in the a** so I was not concerned about that. But the new one have a 9 months old baby and I don't want to be the dumb guy who wakes up the baby all the time.

Do you have any suggestion? Except turn the volume lower ?

I would say if the sub has a port plug it with cloth, or you could also wrap the whole thing in a blanket, you could also try raising it away from the floor.

Anything to reduce reverberation and vibration, i think more than anything vibration. It could certainly help, reducing the surface area that the sub touches the floor with ultimately reduce vibration.

I think there is no way to reduce the vibration until the sub is on the flore. Try to put it on something. Ideally is to hang it LOL

Will it be better to have like 4 parts (one on each corner of the sub) than a big part that cover all the sub area?

Yes i would agree, i know my sub has four small rubber feet that raise it 2 inches off the floor, my neighbor below never hears the bass. I would also say to keep it out of a corner if possible.

Have you tried setting it on a piece of furniture?

Also taking the sub out and fill the inside with towels might help.
