Isolation Feet for Buttkicker (or other tactile transducers)

    Just purchased RaceRoom RR2000 chassis. The chassis comes with rubber feet, (6) #751 20 117 and (2) #751 20 119.

    Does anyone know if these rubber feet will successfully act as 'isolation feet' for tactile transducers (using 4 ButtKicker mini LFE transducers in chassis mode with SimVibe software)?

    Or, do I need to replace the stock rubber feet with actual isolation feet made for tactile transducers (see image below of Buttkicker Kinetic Isolator RDB-375)?

    I want to get the most kinetic/vibration transferred to the RR2000 chassis.

    would a rubber 'carpet' (like the one in the trunk of my car) work?

    Your question suggests, I should have taken my physics courses more seriously (LOL). I would assume that the density and thickness of the rubber, and the weigh it supports, are variables to determine the level of vibration absorption. I figured if the GE Vibration Pads could support a fully loaded washing machine, it could support an occupied rig. They have worked well for me so far.
