ISO-Pod for Genelec Subwoofers?

Hey what's good?

Is there something like ISO-Pods for subwoofers as well? I heard that some studios undocked their sub's from the ground. Does it make sense? 

​​​​​​​Thanks in advance :-)

Well, under a 7350A, I've used pads designed to keep desktop computers safe from vibrations from nearby explosions (at construction sites). My only point, though, was to make the boom box sit still on an uneven wooden cottage floor... (Oh yes, I really did take it along on a trip with a pair of 8330's and will do so again. :-)) 

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Didn't seem to do anything bad, hard to say whether there was any other than the most obvious benefit though. At least this option wouldn't be too expensive to try for yourself.

Yeah, decoupling can remove distortion from the signal. It's a good thing, if the floof doesn't become part of the speaker.

Concrete stands and quarz sand also make sense.
