Hi Hank,

Only some of the original cabinets came with threaded inserts on the bottom for feet.  The factory had originally used large threaded inserts which used a large M8 thread.  Unfortunately they shipped out some very long and narrow spikes originally which I had not seen and they would break out under the heavy weight if tipped on an angle other than being set straight down.

I had once found some thread reducers for M8 down to M5 which allowed us to attach rubber feet, but you will likely have to order them as they are not very common parts.  I would suggest grabbing an M8 screw at the hardware store and check the thread first before you order anything.

Hi

I'm a new-comer to the MFW-15 Got two, one working with V3, and one working but humming with V2. Will do some capacitor surgery on it first to see if it fixes the hum issue.

My question is: was the sub designed to sit on the floor, or is 4" - 5" spacer on bottom OK? Mine are sitting on wheeled dollies, so I can move them.

Thx

Spacing from the floor is up to you.  If the subs are working properly I'd make sure the wheels are the nylon gasketed ones with locking levers.
