I have installed 10 bass traps and with the help of a calibration microphone and the Room EQ Wizard software, I have the situation much improved, but not "perfect". When I'm playing some music from Stanley Clarke or Christian McBride (where they are using a full-size, standup bass), there is still a little "boominess" in the bass registers.

Just for grins, when I could get some help lifting those subs, I thought I'd cut some 4x4's to see if that would make a difference, if so, order a pair of the sub stands in these postings.

Is this all worth the trouble?
I say yes! It's worth the effort. I also have a JL Audio f113 (just 1). When on the floor I had the boominess. As soon as I placed the sub on the Stillpoints component stand all boominese was gone and it integrated seamlessly with my VS VR- HSE speakers. I can only assume the Sound Anchor stands would be better.
