I have recently moved to new apartment and now face a strange problem. The building is very old and wooden floor is too alive. If I am walking in one corner of apartment the vibration from steps can be felt in other corner. Banging the floor with foot gives you a sense that furniture and fixture is going down. I have installed padding and carpet to calm down the footfalls.
With or without spikes (spikes hardly penetrate padding and carpet) my floor standing speakers seems to have lost all of their talents. Bass is especially blotted and extremely loose. One can feel the floor playing in harmony when playing music.
I do not worry about the carpet or floor. Please help me with some solution?
