    I just started using my new setup which consists of an Eden 210xlt and an Aguilar 359 amp with a Furman PL-8 power conditioner. The amp and stuff is mounted in a SKB 4 space unit. When playing at volume level 4 or above everything vibrates in the rack and is real annoying. Is this something I should expect or what's the deal here? I removed the rack case off the speaker and most of it stopped. Is it bad to put the amp on the speaker cab? Do they make a rubber pad to put between the cab and the rack?.........Gary

    The same thing happend to me. The rubber/foam pad seems like it would work, but i havent seen one, i guess you could make your own. But for now, the only solution i found was not to put the rack ontop of the cab.

    Are there any nut clips not being used clipped in place on the rails? Those will rattle like a mofo.

    I use a piece of foam to keep my QSC power amp quiet....

    I'd be finding whatever is loose and tightening it.
