    I know how to and all I have the screw gun and 16 1" screws, and a ruler. I have a few ?'s though.

    1. Should I put them on the sides or infront/behind the corners?

    2. When I play I get a ton on shaking in the whole house, it gets to the point where I hear the rumbling of the contents in/out of the room more that my actuall sound sometimes, will castors elimate some of this by chance?

    3. Any thing I should know?

    For stability, place them as near to the corners as you can, but stay back a little bit for structural integrety of the cab, you don't want to drill right at the edge or have the pressure from being dropped on the wheels to be born by a weak edge of the cab.

    Also, verify BEFORE drilling that you have sufficient space so that neither your drill nor your screws will hit a speaker or other component inside the cab.

    Your speaker will still sonically couple with the floor through the wheels, just perhaps not quite as much due to the vobration absorption qualities of the rubber wheels. The softer the rubber, the more absorption of vibrations.
