Many stands come with a compartment dedicated to sand and similarly heavy and well-damped materials. And there’s method in the madness. You see, the speaker plays music by moving its drive unit in and out to create sound pressure: when the drive unit pushes outwards, it creates sound pressure, but when it moves inwards it pushes the entire speaker backwards.
One way to improve the situation is to add mass by means of a platform fixed to the top surface of the foam. Primacoustic do this in their Recoil Stabilizer by using a very thick steel slab with rubber matting on top, while Auralex and other companies use MDF topped with dense rubber on their more up–market platforms. IsoAcoustics take yet a different approach, by using a frame made from rigid components joined by resilient isolators.
Moseco are the designer model in the Atacama range using both acoustic and environmentally friendly Bamboo to enhance the listening experience. Moseco has recently been awarded both 5 stars and BEST SPEAKER STANDS 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 in What Hi-Fi? S & V magazine ,so don’t just take our word for it!
