I am very casual when it comes to sound systems, I recently got a logitech g560 speaker, which has a downward facing subwoofer. I am renting an apartment for 1 more year (student, gonna move after my uni is done) so I don’t really want to invest a lot -and probably not allowed either- to change the floor and wall structures.

Is there any relatively cheap way I could somewhat isolate the room so that I could use the subwoofer with a peace of mind and not have the sound leak to the apartment below/next to me? Any wall foam , or some bass trap/floor mat that could help? (I live in Europe)

The 2 speakers are next to my monitor and the subwoofer is under my desk. The floor is wood/fake wood.

Appreciate the advice!

Noise transmission issues require a permanent barrier build. You can isolate the sub from the floor contact.
