Pair of speaker isolation platforms
Our take on the Auralex ProPAD™ by Crutchfield's Dave Bar
The Auralex ProPAD's unique triple-layer construction is highly effective for preventing vibration from your speakers from being transferred into supporting surfaces and muddying your sound.
Bring out the best in your speakers
Even the best speakers and studio monitors can suffer a noticeable loss of performance if the surface they're resting on is vibrating along with the music. That transferred vibration adds coloration to the sound, resulting in reduced accuracy and clarity. Fortunately, there's a easy solution: Isolate your speakers from their environment with the Auralex ProPAD monitor isolation pads.
Placed under your speakers, the ProPAD's triple-layered foam and MDF construction will effectively decouple them from whatever surface they're sitting on, instantly resulting in purer, more accurate sound. You'll hear greater bass definition, increased midrange resolution, and a deeper, more focused soundstage. Included foam wedges allow you to angle your speakers towards your listening position for optimized sound.

Professional Monitor Isolators: Auralex ProPADs feature a durable, 3-layer highly damped construction that provides superior isolation from the vibrations and resonant energy created by the studio monitors, preventing this energy from being transmitted into the supporting furniture. ProPADs are extremely useful for decoupling monitors and reducing structural vibrations. Auralex ProPADs help your studio monitors to deliver:
- Increased midrange resolution
- Deeper, more focused soundstage
- Improved low-frequency definition
- Optimized listening axis
- Significant reduction of extraneous mechanical resonance
