IsoAcoustics Announces Aperta Sub Isolation Solution for Subwoofers
IsoAcoustics, the Canadian company and hottest name in audio isolation control products right now, has announced its new Aperta Sub isolation for subwoofers.
Dubbed “a clever solution to maximise your enjoyment of bass whilst keeping the neighbors happy” by the Canucks themselves, the Aperta Sub is an isolation stand designed for subwoofers weighing up to 36.3 kg.
According to IsoAcoustics, 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 favourite music or movies. But despite our love for bass, the large pulsating driver produces energy and vibrations that travel through solid structures.
Room acoustic treatment alone doesn't solve these problems and doesn't mitigate structure borne-noises. IsoAcoustics proudly boasts that its Aperta Sub isolation stand “not only reduces these disturbances but also delivers better sounding audio.”
By 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.
The Aperta Sub consists of top and bottom isolators, each connected by a rigid frame that provides a stable base and lifts the subwoofer off the floor. The patented IsoAcoustics isolators are directional and designed to be aligned with the subwoofers drivers to maintain the energy on-axis. The company says that this high degree of isolation will also clean up the muddy low-frequencies to reveal more bass definition.
It has a low-profile and compact design, measuring 265mm W x 290mm D x 33mm H and is designed for both front-firing and side-firing subwoofers weighing up to 36.3kg. The Aperta Sub also includes carpet disks which feature 15mm spikes that anchor into carpeted surfaces for a stronger connection.
Available now, the IsoAcoustics Aperta Sub sells for $299 RRP.
