Overview: The AudioQuest SorboGel Damping and Isolation
System includes four "Q-Feet". The Q Feet are placed underneath your speakers and electronic
components to absorb external vibration and resonances from the equipment.
SorboGel: The Q Feet are made of SorboGel, a dense, visco-elastic
polymer in a semi-liquid/semi-solid state. Its very long molecules turn
kinetic energy (vibration) into an insignificant amount of heat.
Performance: Using the Q Feet will improve the sound and
picture of your A/V system by both isolating and damping unwanted vibrations.
Harmful resonances from speakers and subwoofers can enter into DVD players and
receivers if not absorbed.
Usage: The four Q Feet are to be placed near the corners of
your component or speakers, allowing the component's feet to hang without
touching anything. If your subwoofer's feet are taller than the Q Feet, you
should remove the subwoofer feet. The PVC plastic trays are used to protect your
furniture, because the SorboGel will damage the finish of whatever it touches.
(To prevent unseen marks on the underside of your components, you can use a
simple plastic film such as a food wrap.)
Capacity: Each individual Q Foot will support up to 6-1/2
pounds--the four enclosed in this package will accommodate components up to 26
pounds. For heavier components, more Q Feet will be needed.
