In order to get the best possible sound from your speaker stands, it is recommended that the main columns are partially filled with a high density inert filler. Atabites has an approximate density of 2403 kg/m sq. compared to dry sand which has a typical rating of just 1442 kg/m sq.
By using Atabites you will reduce ringing and give a sonically dead platform from which to position bookshelf style speakers.
Featuring new zinc coated micro-discs, the Atabite SMD-Z 7HD inert filler has a uniformed particulate size giving consistent sonic performance. The Zinc coating adds mass, protects the filler from both oxidization and degradation while enhancing the visual aesthetics.
PLEASE NOTE: Atabites are supplied by weight, not volume. (7 kg tubs). Some settling of contents may occur in transit.
Here is the maximum approximate weight of Atabites that can be used for each pair of speaker stands:
- Moseco 5=7 kg
- Moseco 6=10.4 kg
- Moseco 7=12.2 kg
- Nexus 5i=7 kg
- Nexus 6i=8.2 kg
- Nexus7i=12.2 kg
- HMS1.1=500 mm=34 kg
- HMS1.1 600 mm=41.8 kg
- HMS1.1 700 mm=55.4 kg
- HMS1 TS-600 mm=41.8 kg
Sonic results will depend on speaker stand positioning, type of speaker, room size, type of electronics and cabling, listening position and personal taste. However, as a general rule filling the stands approximately half to two thirds full generally gives the best results.
