    Critical Mass Footers under Mono Blocks?

    Critical Mass Footers under Amps?

    I am not sure if using the Critical Mass footers 1.0 size under my mono amps is a good thing. The bass maybe seems a little less dynamic and deep, but I am not sure.
    Can anyone add input or share on their experience using these footers under amps?

    Heard many systems with CS2 / CS2M 1.0 or 1.5 footers under stereo or mono amp with amazing result. Since amp is usually much heavier so the larger the footers the better the result.

    Consider also their new "ultra" footers. I never used the older versions, but the ultra had a very positive impact in my system (although I don't have them under my monos).

    Thank you for the comments. The amps are sitting on top of a 4" maple base which has 2" Audiopoint's underneath. Perhaps I have too many?

    So, today I reinstalled the Critical Mass footers under the amps. Even though the bass may seem to be less, the soundstage is wider, deeper and more enjoyable. (BTW, I have 6 sets of the CM footers under my components).
