Lets you hear low end frequencies with greater accuracy.
The Auralex SubDude is a 15" x 15" x 2.5" Subwoofer Isolation Platform wrapped with a cleanable black velour to fit any room setting. Its purpose is to prevent sound from transmitting through your subwoofer to surrounding surfaces.
Subwoofer speakers create big vibrations (low frequencies) that you can feel in the floor and in objects placed nearby. When the source of the vibrations is coupled directly to the floor it causes these objects to vibrate or resonate”not only at the fundamental pitch the source is creating but also at harmonic frequencies that discolor the true sound from the source. Now you have two (or more) objects vibrating, which creates an acoustical problem called "secondary resonance".
The most noticeable effect of the Auralex SubDude is on harmonic frequencies above 100 Hz. This is the harmonic range above the fundamental the sub is recreating, allowing you to hear a more true bass tone below 100 Hz by eliminating upper harmonic resonances. This translates to the listener as more accuracy in the low end, and a cleaner (less muddy) crossover between the sub and your full range LCR channels. The SubDude Isolation Platform effectively reduces secondary resonance by decoupling your subwoofer from the floor so you hear your sub and not the vibration of the other objects in your listening environment.
When speakers are tested in anechoic chambers, they are isolated from objects around them that could introduce resonance. With the Auralex SubDude Isolation Platform, you can recreate a similar scenario in your living room.

I got this from stupid deal with some other stuff i think it is also reffered to as the Gramma AE. there are much bigger versions of this for amps and cabs, which is what i use this one for. Haven't used it on the sub woofer but when its used on anything where the bass can get worbly and overwhelming and shake the windows it tightens it up alot for a cleaner sound. especially when micing a small amp or something like that.
