MAPLE SPEAKER PLINTHS
Hear The Full Potential Of Your World-Class Floorstanding Speaker
Concrete and plywood floors cripple the sound of your speakers. They muddy the bass, smear the midrange, and add harshness to the treble. Many, if not most, perceived room problems are caused by bad-sounding floors. Instead of spending thousands on room treatments that address the wrong problem, here is a direct, evidence-based cure: drain the speakers vibrational energy, not into the problem floor, but into heavy maple bases rigidly mounted above the floor via our brass footers.
Our 2" or 4" maple bases make a far cleaner sink for receiving and dissipating the speakers vibrations than flimsy, resonant " plywood flooring or, worst of all, concrete. Concrete, tile, and stone strongly reflect back into the speaker almost all of their received vibrations, out of phase and distorted. Modern engineered wood floors are nearly as toxic to good speaker sound, particularly floating floors that rest on rubbery insulating sheets. Carpet over concrete or plywood just worsens the situation.
To double the sonic upgrade of our maple stands, replace your speakers spikes or composite feet with our much more rigid, massive, brass Threaded Heavyfeet, Triplepoints, MegaMounts or Threaded Megafeet.
We make Maple Plinths to fit all small and medium size floorstanders. To increase the mass and reduce speaker rocking, we recommend a Plinth at least two inches larger than the speaker width and depth. If you're on concrete, 4" thickness is highly recommended. Note that, in careful listening comparisons, the effect of the Plinth's increased height is miniscule compared to the huge improvements in bass and treble.
