IsoAcoustics has announced the availability today of the Aperta Sub for $149.99, an isolation stand designed for subwoofers weighing up to 80 pounds (36.3 kg). As well as enabling “greater bass definition”, the unit should ensure “less complaints” from neighbors. IA adds that because we are hard-wired to pick up bass rhythms over other tones, the energy from a subwoofer is more likely to disturb others nearby.
The new base should also be responsible for tighter bass response and better clarity. By decoupling a subwoofer from its supporting surface, the Aperta Sub prevents a physical transfer of energy through the
supporting structure. The design consists of both top and bottom isolators, each connected by rigid frames forming a stable base which lifts the subwoofer off the floor. Furthermore, ‘aperta’ meaning open in Italian, refers to the stylized open-space form, which the company says complements its surroundings.
Onboard patented isolators are directional and designed to be aligned with the subwoofer drivers to maintain the energy on-axis, while muddy low frequencies are cleaned for more bass definition. The unit measures 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 weighing up to 80 lbs (36.3kg). The Aperta Sub also includes carpet disks which
feature 0.6″ (15mm) spikes that anchor into carpeted surfaces for a stronger connection.
