  • There are differing schools of thought regarding direct coupling vs isolation to reduce flanking noise (noise transmitted through solid objects which are in contact) plenty of bedtime reading on the subject should you be inclined.

    This is a pretty good guide to practical home acoustics:­acticalacoustics.doc

    In my current room (supspended pine floorboards) i have found that a decent sized paving slab under the speakers helps minimise the transmission of lf noise - speaker stands on topbof the slabs should be a good way to go.

    Oh and dont buy new speakers ,second hand is much better value and they will sound beter as the surrounds will have had time to soften (provided they are not foam and have rotted away) and despite what manufacturers claim there really hasnt been much advancement in speaker technology in the last 50 years...
