Auralex Anounce SpeakerDudesJuly 24, 2008
SpeakerDudes(HD) are isolators for your speakers.
SpeakerDudes will decouple your speakers from the surface they rest upon, resulting in a more pure, accurate tone. Low frequencies will be projected and will no longer lack the definition you desire. Mid and high frequencies will be crisp and intelligible. Rattles and resonances will be a thing of the past.
Speaker manufacturers develop and design their speakers based on tests that are performed in anechoic chambers where the speakers are suspended in the middle of the room – i.e. there is no interaction between the speaker cabinet and a hard surface. Once the speakers are implemented into real world applications, the speakers will not sound the same because they are now interacting with the environment.
The SpeakerDudes(HD) wedge allows you to tilt the speaker (or any item to be decoupled/isolated) to listening angles of 4° and -4°. Turning the wedge face down allows the speaker to be set flat 0°.
SpeakerDudes(HD) have unlimited uses, such as isolating delicate electronics from vibration. The use of SpeakerDudes under CD burners, laptops, turntables, and other electronics is encouraged, providing the SpeakerDudes do not restrict ports or vents.
Test conducted using accelerometers to determine the amount of vibration that was reduced by inserting SpeakerDudes underneath a speaker.
