I am curious how many here prefer a hard floor vs a soft floor. To be clear, I am talking about how the floor that you stand on connects to the ground. I'm not talking about carpet vs wood floor or anything like that. I define a "hard floor" as basically a concrete floor, perhaps with a layer of solid wood and/or carpet on top but no hollow spaces whatsoever below your feet when you are standing on the floor. A "soft floor" would be any case where you are standing on any amount of hollow space under the flooring, such as typical wood framed floors. Any part of a house/apartment that isn't on the first floor would be a soft floor for example, but in many places the bottom floor is a "soft floor" also. The main variable, to me, is in regards to the bass. Heavy bass can shake a soft floor, but can't really do much to a hard floor. To some, being able to feel the bass via the floor is a critical component of the low-end. Those same vibrations can also result in unwanted noise however, as furniture and other objects in the room are rattled. With a hard floor, pretty much the only bass you feel is what is conducted to your body (and maybe your seat) from the speaker/sub via the air. It can sometimes result in the bass seeming more tight and clearly defined, but you lose out on some of the effect that the bass has. Feeling the bass through the ground can be significant enough that some use "Bass shakers", otherwise known as "Tactile transducers" in their system specifically to shake the ground and mimic the results of a large subwoofer. What do you prefer, and why?
