Default Concrete

Hello all
Would there be any benefit to my setup to add Stillpoints under my speakers,subs and possibly some equipment ? My speakers sit on top of granite pilths with cone spikes to the floor and factory spikes on the speakers to the pith.These are on a carpeted concrete floor along with my subs with rubber feet. My rack system is also on concrete in another room. Being concrete and in separate areas I shouldn’t have vibration issues in theory. The two subs are behind the speakers in the corners. I’m just looking for a little insight before jumping in for little to no benefit.IMG_1705.jpgIMG_1701.jpgIMG_0893.jpgIMG_0895.jpgIMG_1702.jpg

do you feel the sandwich approach aids in the overall sound ?

I agree with respect to equipment rack vs. speakers but with subs right behind the main speakers and your 'layering' of the coupling between the main speakers and the floor I'm not so sure ??

FWIW, my room is carpet over concrete and my 120# Revels's are spiked right thru to the concrete

The speakers are ported through the bottom . I had the pilth made to help tighten up the low end a bit, it did bring a little more grunt to the sound. I added the subs later on .
