IsoAcoustics today announced their newest isolation stand for subwoofers. The Aperta Sub, an isolation stand designed for subwoofers weighing up to 80 pounds (36.3 kg). The Aperta Sub allows the listener to hear greater bass definition from their subwoofer, while keeping unwanted vibrations from annoying neighbors in apartments or condos.
Expanding on the success of the Aperta line, the IsoAcoustics Aperta Sub effectively manages the energy from the subwoofer resulting in tighter bass response and greater clarity. Decoupling the subwoofer from its supporting surface, the Aperta Sub manages the energy from the subwoofer and prevents the physical transfer of energy through the supporting structure.
We are hard-wired to pick up bass rhythms more than other tones, and low bass frequencies allow the listener to feel a deep syncopated connection to their favorite music or movies. The large pulsating driver produces energy and vibrations that travel through solid structures that create issues in the listening space and can often be disturbing to others. Room treatment can be costly and doesn’t mitigate structure borne-noises. Enter the Aperta Sub isolation stand that not only reduces these disturbances, but also delivers better sounding audio.
The design of the Aperta Sub is simplicity itself: it consists of top and bottom isolators, each connected by a rigid frame that provides a stable base and lifts the subwoofer off the floor. Aperta means ‘open’ in Italian, which describes the stands’ stylized design that creates open space and compliments its surroundings. The patented IsoAcoustics isolators are directional and designed to be aligned with the subwoofers drivers to maintain the energy on-axis. The Aperta Sub provides a high degree of isolation and cleans up the muddy low-frequencies to reveal more bass definition.
The Aperta Sub has an innovative shape that provides stability and avoids interference with existing subwoofer feet. It has a low-profile and compact design, measuring 10.5″ W x 11.5″ D x 1.3″ H (265mm x 290mm x 33mm) and is made to be used with front-firing and side-firing subwoofers that weigh up to 80 lbs (36.3kg).
The Aperta Sub also includes carpet discs which feature 0.6″ (15mm) spikes that anchor into carpeted surfaces for a stronger connection.
