Is it OK to put a subwoofer on carpet?

Subwoofers on Carpet The subwoofer can sit right on the carpet, and the sound should be propagated from the subwoofer and mixed with the rest of the soundscape just fine. And even for a down-facing subwoofer, the amount of sound being absorbed by the carpet is likely going to be negligible.

If the subwoofer is front-firing, the subwoofer can be placed on its side. This is possible only if the speaker is facing the listening area. Obviously, the speaker cabinet would need to permit the subwoofer to be stable on its side, but most do. A down-firing subwoofer cannot be put on its side.
