A cheap DIY option is to build a couple of towers by stacking concrete blocks or bricks. This low–cost approach really works — we’ve used it successfully on more than one Studio SOS visit — and because of the high mass, very little vibrational energy makes it through to the floor. Some people like the rugged appearance of bricks, but if it’s not to your taste you can always disguise them with cloth drapes, or even spray them gold if you like that kind of thing!
And, of course, it needs to put the speaker in the correct position relative to the listener, which usually means with the tweeter aimed at an imaginary point just behind the listener’s head. Note, though, that a few speakers are deliberately designed to be aimed directly ahead rather than at the listener, so always check the recommendations in the manual that comes with your particular loudspeaker before directing them inwards.
An isolation platform works in a similar way to a car’s suspension, and comprises three mechanical components: a spring, a mass supported by the spring, and some form of damping to prevent the sprung mass from continuing to bounce around. In a car you have the springs between the axles and the car body: the car body provides the mass and the shock absorbers provide the damping, to stop you having a bouncy ride.
Some frames have smaller plates which will not be an issue with some screens but might be a problem for bigger 8 screens or monitors which are meant to sit enjoy the Adam A77X to give you an instance. Be conscious that we left other kinds of speaker stands, most especially wall mounts, so as a means to maintain this manual based on the types mostly utilized in house studios. If that's a stand which you would catch, catch it in Ultimate Service to make sure you do not get a version that is just crap. It is a basic stand which really does the job at an excellent price. Generally, extreme positions it's likely to be assured in. Strong wood stands are somewhat more durable, however, are also a tremendous deal more costly and hard to find.
