Hello

I recently purchased on of these for my kitchen Boom:

I currently have the Boom positioned directly on top of the Yamaha - and it sounds great.

However I'm concerned that this may not ne the best arrangement audio-wise, and am also worried that the vibrations may damage the precious Boom.

Can any advise ?

What is the material for sonically isolating the Boom from the woofer eg. something to place underneath the Boom ?

Thanks

Probably ok, the only thing in the Boom that could possibly be damaged is the VFD display. And that's probably going to be ok considering the years I had a VFD display in my car and had no issues.

Can't say if you're risking damage, but if it were me these would be on the bottom of the Boom:

I use feet as above under my hard disks and TV recording boxes,it's very good at damping the vibrations.

If I just want to stack stuff and stop it moving about I use this type of material

If it were me, I would try my best to separate the Boom from not only vibration but heat. It should be relatively easy to tell if the Boom can safely reside on top of this sub or not.
