AudioQuest SorboGel Q Feet
Our take on the AudioQuest SorboGel Q Feet by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
AudioQuest's SorboGel Q Feet are made of Sorbothane®, a synthetic polymer used for isolation and vibration damping. When the very long molecules in Sorbothane absorb vibrations they wiggle, converting the kinetic energy into a negligible amount of heat. For best results, place the flat side of the SorboGel Q Feet directly against your component rather than under the component's feet. A Stereophile Recommended Component.

- 4 Black plastic trays
- Instruction sheet
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.
