Overview: The IsoAcoustics Aperta (pronounced A-pair-tah)
sculpted aluminum speaker stands are
designed to raise your speakers or studio monitors off of the tabletop or floor
and angle them toward your ears. "Aperta" is the Italian word for "open", and
describes the look of the stands as well as the spatial openness of the sound
that comes from your speakers. The stands have a unique floating design which
isolates and decouples the speaker from the mounting surface to eliminate
acoustic distortion. The Apertas have a unique integrated tilt adjustment that
lets you tilt the speakers between 1° and 6°.
Note: This package includes a pair of speaker stands.
Application: The Aperta Studio Monitor stands are designed for
medium-sized studio monitors, bookshelf, and desktop speakers. They should be used
with speakers with dimensions greater than 6" wide and 7.5" deep, and weighing
up to 35 pounds each.
PIF Principles: IsoAcoustics Aperta stands are designed to support
the PIF Principles of acoustic design:
- Placement: The proximity to adjacent and nearby surfaces. The
stands raise the speakers off the supporting surface and away from adjacent
surfaces to reduce reflections.
- Isolation: The stands decouple the speakers from the supporting
surface to reduce the energy from exciting other objects. The speaker is
allowed for float independently.
- Focus: By raising and tilting the speakers, the stands create an
ideal listening position. The speakers should be tilted to the listeners ear
level, and positioned to form an equilateral triangle from the speakers to
Angle Adjustment: The Aperta speaker stands feature top and
bottom aluminum isolation sections that are held together with tube inserts
(0.639" diameter) on each corner. Two of the tube inserts feature threaded tilt
adjustment screws that lengthen the insert from 2.4" to 3.1", enabling you to
dial-in the optimum tilt angle. The screws have gradation marks in 1° increments
for precision angle adjustments of 1° to 6°. To obtain a downward angle, the
adjustable tube inserts should be placed in the rear. For an upward angle, the
adjustable tubes should be placed in the front.
Isolators: On each corner of the stands are high-modulus co-polymer isolators. The combination of
the isolators and aluminum tube inserts significantly
absorbs and dissipates the energy coming from the speakers so that it does not
travel to the mounting surface. This allows the speaker to "float"
independently, eliminating acoustic distortion.
