Basically i have carpet in my bedroom, and i want to get rid of it and have the natural wooden floorboards on show instead. My problem is, will the bass frequencies from my amplifier travel through the floor more if i take the carpet up.

If so what can i do to stop them?

You could always keep a little section of carpet under the amp.

Why must you put a little x at the end of every post?

Mostly guys like and we do not wish for man kisses.

but seriously, the bass frequencies would still travel through the wood even if the amp is on carpet. I think.
Also, that first sentence is my best attempt so far at being sigged.

It isn't that bad actually. I've played on carpet, and couldn't really tell a difference.

carpet wouldnt really suppressed lower frequencies so there shouldnt really be a difference but why would you rather have hard wooden floors then a FLUFFY CARPET!!!?
Starting bass or just looking for a new one? Here's a suggestion: Go to your local music store and try some out.

try buying a load of polystyrene cieling tiles from a hardware store then place them under your amp this will stop alot of vibration travelling !

remove it all, it amplifies you slightly and makes your lows a bit clearer.

Wooden flooring is definitely going to make it sound louder and rattle through your room more. To make the vibrations stop try putting the amp up on a chair or something similar. It removes the vibrations from the ground.

Leave the carpet down.

I've heard that cutting tennis balls in half and using them as feet for your amp can help with this. it's cheap enough to try, right?

no conversation on the board. I guess shin would have kept a section of carpet under the amp. So I would like to shin, what you did? Besides in future if you have any questions related to flooring, always feel free to PM me.

get something foamy of squishy to put under your amp needs to be about an inch thick to do any good tho

also depends on how big your amp is after a certain point theres no way you can quiet it down.
