Aperta 200 Speaker Isolation: The IsoAcoustics Aperta 200 (pronounced
A-pair-tah) sculpted aluminum speaker stands are designed to raise your speakers
off of the tabletop or floor and angle them toward your ears. "Aperta" is the
Italian word for "open", and describes the look of the stands as well as the
spatial openness of the sound that comes from your speakers. The stands feature
a low profile, enabling speakers to have a low stance while enhancing their
clarity and performance. The stands also have a unique floating design which
isolates and decouples the speaker from the mounting surface to eliminate
acoustic distortion. The stands' unique tilt adjustment enables the user to set
the optimum tilt angle, with fine gradation markings provided to ensure precise
Note: This package includes a pair of speaker stands.
Compatibility: The IsoAcoustics Aperta 200 is designed for
bookshelf, desktop speakers, studio monitors, and large speakers on floor
stands, as well as under floor-standing speakers with the bottom sections of
7.8125" (w) x 10" deep, to cover the four isolators. Your speakers may have a
modest overhand beyond the stand. The Aperta
200 can support up to 75 lbs. The stands "IsoAcoustics" logo should be turned
towards the listening position.
PIF Principles: IsoAcoustics Aperta 200 stands are designed
to support the PIF Principles of acoustic design:
- Placement: The proximity to adjacent and nearby
surfaces. The stands raise the speakers off the supporting surface and away
from adjacent surfaces to reduce reflections.
- Isolation: The stands decouple the speakers from the
supporting surface to reduce the energy from exciting other objects. The
speaker is allowed for float independently.
- Focus: By raising and tilting the speakers, the stands
create an ideal listening position. The speakers should be tilted to the
listeners ear level, and positioned to form an equilateral triangle from the
speakers to the listener.
Angle Adjustment: The IsoAcoustics Aperta 200 stands feature a
unique integrated tilt adjustment to dial-in the optimum tilt angle, with fine
gradation markings provided to ensure the precision of the angle adjustments.
Adjustments of up to a 6 degree angle can be made to tilt speakers up or down to
attain greater focus.
Isolators: Isolators prevent the transfer of speaker cabinet energy to
surrounding surfaces, effectively isolating the speaker from the desktop,
bookshelf, floor, or other surface. By allowing the speaker to perform in free
space, it's able to sound the way it was intended. The end result is an
unaltered, accurate sound, true to the artist's original intention.
