Default Subwoofer Isolation Pads?

I see some Subwoofer Isolation Pads (or feet) being sold online. They don't come super cheap (4 feet for the SVS seem to be $50). They're sold as a way to cut down on ground vibrations through multiple rooms (ie: apartments, or multiple rooms in a house) while also giving cleaner/tighter sounding bass.

https://www.amazon.com/SVS-SoundPath.../dp/B00NCSQ5GK

Both would be nice to have -- as long as they don't affect the actual quality of the sound. Has anyone used these before? any feedback from actual users?

I have 3 subs and really enjoy the sound of them, but I also hear things rattling (and can hear some bass from other rooms). With a high price (for what they are; $150 for 3 pairs of replacement subwoofer feet), you'd want something that both works and does not affect the quality of your subwoofer.

These would be for use on wooden floors

Just build yourself one of these:

They are inexpensive, and really raise the performance of a sub.

I like the Soundpaths. I have them on two of my subs and they've helped a bit.

I've thought about getting some of these for my subs. Probably very similar to the SVS isolation pads but much cheaper.
