Ran into an interesting problem the other day; I know you guys are a loud bunch, so I figure somebody here has to understand. Anyway, breaking in a new head/2x12 pair on stage, I noticed the head moves around a fair bit. I like a loud, bass-heavy tone from that setup, so it's expected that the cab - Avatar 2x12, Eminence Commonwealths, stood on its side - will probably vibrate some. That said, I don't want to risk knocking the head onto the floor.
My thoughts thus far: Sitting the head on the floor is an option, but it'd be nice to leave it atop the cab if possible. Turning down the volume and/or bass are not so much options. I guess I'm just hoping somebody can link me to some vibration-absorbing miracle feet to install on the head and cab. Thoughts?

A lot of cabs I've used have rubber built in on top, does the avatar not? In any case a rubber sheet or similar might be worth a try.

try not standing the cab on its side. you may still be able to get the projection you need without the excessive vibrations not being absorbed.

10p nails through the head into the cab should hold it nicely in place.
