SVS Subwoofer Isolation System Makes You a Better Neighbor


SVS-SoundPath-Subwoofer-Isolation-System-small.jpgSVS announced the availability of the SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System, an affordable and discreet alternative to traditional platforms and risers designed to improve sound quality while reducing floor vibrations that can cause problems between sub owners and their neighbors or roommates. The Isolation System comes in packages of four (standard) or six elastomer feet (larger subwoofers), with three popular thread sizes to accommodate virtually any subwoofer, SVS brand or otherwise.

Decoupling a subwoofer from its surroundings has a number of positive effects. For one, the floor doesn't offer its own sonic signature or boom to the performance, resulting in cleaner, tighter bass. Plus, as anyone who's ever cranked a subwoofer up to reference levels can attest, the buzzing and rattling of dishes, light fixtures, furniture and other room décor that results can be distracting and take away from the subwoofer's true calling.

Audio science dictates that a bass drum is more likely to cause consternation among neighbors and roommates than a flute, even when played at the exact same volume. Why? Bass from movies and music is heard more perceptibly than mids or highs because the longer wavelengths of low frequency sound waves travel further and pass more freely through air and matter at an atomic level. To address the complaints that can arise from having a killer subwoofer, SVS developed the SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System, engineering it to reduce floor noise by absorbing the vibrations that normally get transferred into floor.

The durometer elastomer feet that make up the system feature a durable anodized steel outer shell and steel machine screws with thread sizes of ¼-20, M6 or M8, to fit almost any brand of subwoofer.

The SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System is available now for $49.99 (four foot system) and $69.99 (six foot system).
