Furthermore, in accordance with Newton’s third law of motion (each action has an equal and opposite reaction), whenever the speaker cone moves in one direction it will try to push the speaker cabinet the other way.
And stands do more than combatting early reflections. They also provide what’s called decoupling between your speakers and the floor (which is also known as mechanical isolation). We will let Otto describe their construction: “Take your typical Dynaudio Stand; you have feet with either spikes for solid floors or rubber for wooden ones at the bottom. Then you have a base plate that manages vibrations. Also, large base plates with feet far apart are more stable, making it harder for the speakers to fall over.
So, what should you do instead? We’ve talked to our product team to learn more – and the solution is stands. Sideboards, tables and chairs are out of the question, too. Speaker stands are specifically designed to bring the best out of your speakers by managing vibrations, reducing early reflections and ensuring the proper amount of treble. Together with our Product Manager - Home, Otto Jørgensen, we’ve taken a look at the fundamentals.
It’s physics: for every action, there’s an equal and opposite reaction.
