Funnily enough, last time I read up on this topic, was when I was trying to stop bass from my speakers travelling down to the flat below. The things I learned were: A - don't have speakers in the corner of the room and B - Coupling. Apparently when a speaker is accoustically connected to whatever it is sitting on, this then also acts as a speaker - e.g. the floor or furniture it may be sitting on. To uncouple it from said furniture, the speaker needs to sit on a soft wallowy mass (I used neoprene pads in the end) thereby uncoupling it. The worst thing to sit speakers or stands on (in terms of preventing sound waves travelling to neighbours) was needle points as these couple the speaker very effectively to the surface below.

And this all ties in with what you are saying!

Yeah, it used to be the fashion to fit needle points to speaker stand feet and between the speaker and the stand, I still have all the points that came with mine but I used "black-tac" instead.

I've taken an unorthodox step and decided to make my hill out of sponge cake, coated with dark chocolate. The idea is, I will be able to nibble at it whilst playing with the trains. I'll replace the trees with sugar trees of course to match.  :laugh:

And take a Swiss Army Knife to it to slice it up  :D

If it looks right then it most probably is right.
