Auralex Acoustics, Inc. is now shipping its ProPAD and ProPAD XL Monitor Isolation Pads from its ISO (Instant Sound Optimizer) line.
The ProPAD is a premium-performance variant on Auralex’s popular MoPAD.
The ProPAD features a durable, three layer highly damped construction with increased durability and structural integrity, and provides superior isolation from the vibrations and resonant energy created by studio monitors.
The ProPAD prevents this energy from being transmitted into the supporting furniture, which would greatly color the monitors’ sound and degrade their imaging. The ProPAD is sold in stereo pairs and is designed to work with monitors employing up to 8-inch woofers.
ProPAD’s updated design features a 0.75-inch layer of Melamine-wrapped MDF covered with a thick layer of Auralex’s proprietary IsoPuck isolation material, which is made of recycled rubber. Six stick-on feet, also made from IsoPuck material, are supplied for flat or angled applications.
The ProPAD is the perfect solution for decoupling monitors and reducing structural vibration in all manner of sound-critical spaces, including recording studios, post-production/edit suites, mobile recording facilities, hi-fi listening rooms, home theaters or anywhere a monitor/speaker isolation platform is needed to improve sonic purity.
The ProPAD XL speaker isolation product is a larger version of the award-winning ProPAD. The XL version is designed to work with horizontally oriented, twin woofer monitors and provides the same isolation qualities found in the popular ProPAD. ProPAD XL is the perfect solution for decoupling monitors and reducing structural vibration from larger format monitor speakers.
