IsoAcoustics brings ISO-PUCK to market
Company’s new low-profile, highly flexible and scalable round acoustic isolator is available now.
IsoAcoustics has announced that ISO-PUCK, the company’s new low-profile, highly flexible and scalable round acoustic isolator is available now.
The ISO-PUCK is designed for discreet use under pro audio speakers and subwoofers, musical instrument amplifiers, DJ mixers and turntables as well as a wide variety of stage applications (supporting cabinets, stage monitor wedges, mic stands, etc.)
ISO-PUCK’s extremely low profile make it a discreet solution for isolating speakers, amplifiers and other products where vibrations can affect best performance. With a height of just 1.18 inches (28mm) and 2.4 inches (60mm) in diameter, the ISO-PUCK’s round shape means it can be ideally positioned on any surface, especially on the narrow spaces atop a meter bridge.
The pucks are designed to be used in multiples to match the weight of each speaker, amplifier or other product. With a weight bearing capability of 20lbs (9kg) for each puck, three or more of them can be combined to support the weight of the particular product requiring isolation.
The IsoAcoustics logo defines the front of the unit, confirming the alignment of the internal isolators, so positioning is made simple, allowing it to be configured and turned easily to suit the supporting surface.
The ISO-PUCK features a flange suction cup on the top which adheres to the bottom of the cabinet or product, as well as a bottom flange which adheres to the supporting surface. As a result, the energy is transferred to the core of the multipart isolator – resisting lateral movement and offering superior isolation – resulting in improved clarity, 3-dimensional openness, and uncoloured sound.
Cenzo Townshend, the award-winning music producer and sound engineer who has worked with artists and bands including a-ha, Kaiser Chiefs, U2, Snow Patrol, Florence + the Machine, James Blunt, Bryan Ferry and more, has been a long time IsoAcoustics isolation solutions user. He recently used the ISO-PUCK at his Decoy Studios in the UK and has praise for the new product.
“The difference that the ISO-PUCKS made on my console, was most noticeable in the lower mids, tighter and more focused,” Townshend commented. “The pucks open the highs and widen the imaging, enlarging the soundstage”.
