    Not used them myself, but I've heard they work well for reducing bad vibes!

    Concrete slabs (something like patio tiles) under each deck, then pillows/halves of squash balls/something like the previous two suggestions but more technical should help.

    See if you can find the youtube vid of Mr Scruff's setup - shows you how extreme sound isolation can get ...

    I use outdoor rubber playground tiles between concrete bricks. Sometimes I remove the feet and use halv'd tennis balls as well.

    I've heard of setting the tables on ashtrays with rubber bands over them (stretched through the grooves around the rim) as well.

    The playground tiles i'm talking about look like this:

    Super ghetto:

    Thick rubber bands and sewer pipe cut into 4 inch cylinders. Apply 4-6 rubber bands to the cylinder and place under each turntable. Works like a charm cost nothing

    its amazing how much technology we have and for something simple like bass vibrations you have to search high and low for an inflatable x or chopped up tennis ball lol! oh well fingers crossed it works if not ill go high tech and use ashtrays and elastic bands

    I used to place two chopped up tennis balls under the TT's feet..worked perfect.

    but then again I used to put butter in my old gemini scratch master's cross fader too.


    the rubber mat looks like a better option.
