Overview: The IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R ("isolator") speaker stands are
designed to raise your speakers or studio monitors off of the tabletop or floor
and angle them toward your ears. The stands have a unique floating design which
isolates and decouples the speaker from the mounting surface to eliminate
acoustic distortion. The ISO-L8R155s are black in color, and include the parts for 14 different
combinations of height and tilt for optimal placement and listening positions.
Note: This package includes a pair of speaker stands.
Application: The ISO-L8R155 Studio Monitor stands are designed for
medium-sized studio monitors, bookshelf, and desktop speakers. They should be used
with speakers with dimensions greater than 6" wide and 7.5" deep, and weighing
up to 30 pounds each.
PIF Principles: IsoAcoustics ISO-L8R 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
Height/Angle Adjustment: Two lengths of tubing, plus two sets of tube
inserts, are included to allow you to adjust the height and angle of the
speakers. The rigid steel riser tubes are approximately 5/8" in diameter and
come in 3" and 8" lengths. The short tubes should be used for larger
speakers, and the long tubes for smaller speakers. The high-density plastic
inserts are placed in the ends of the riser tubes to tilt the speakers up to a
maximum of 6.5°. The inserts are placed in the rear risers to create a downward tilt or in
the front risers for an upward tilt. You can use the short or tall inserts, or
both, to obtain the optimal listening angle. The stands can be configured to multiple
combinations of heights and angles, from a minimum height of 4.875" (short risers
with no inserts used) to a maximum of 9.625" (long risers with both inserts).
Isolator Sections: The stand consists of top and bottom isolator
sections, made of high-density plastic, with high-modulus co-polymer isolators
on each corner. The combination of isolators and steel tubes significantly
absorbs and dissipates the energy coming from the speakers so that it does not
travel to the mounting surface. This allows the speaker to "float"
independently, eliminating acoustic distortion. Both the base and upper isolator
sections are 6.112" wide and 7.49" deep.
