IsoAcoustics’ Aperta Sub Stand Lets You Bring The Bass Back Without Waking The Neighbors

Do you like to crank your sub, but you’re scared to bother the neighbors? Well, IsoAcoustics has the product for you.

It’s called the Aperta Sub, and it’s an isolation stand for subwoofers weighing up to 80 pounds.

The design is based on their excellent Aperta bookshelf stands (check out our review), which uses IsoAcoustics’ patented isolator pads on the top and bottom connected with a rigid frame in the middle. This structure then lifts the Subwoofer off the ground and keeps it from transferring disruptive energy through the floor and the walls. 

Not only that, IsoAcoustics says that isolating the Sub’s energy will also help tighten up the bass and enhance bass definition. 

The Aperta Sub’s low-profile and compact design is made to work with a wide variety of subwoofers, and it comes with spike feet to allow for use on carpeted surfaces. 

The Aperta Sub is available today in the US and retails for $149.99.

A clever solution to maximize your enjoyment of bass (whilst keeping the neighbors happy)

Markham, Ontario- May 18th, 2021 – IsoAcoustics adds to their award-winning line of isolation products with the Aperta Sub, an isolation stand designed for subwoofers weighing up to 80 pounds (36.3 kg). The Aperta Sub allows the listener to discover greater bass definition from their subwoofer with less complaints from their neighbors.

More bass less rattle
We are hard-wired to pick up bass rhythms more than other tones, and low bass frequencies allow the listener to feel a deep syncopated connection to their favorite music or movies. The large pulsating driver produces energy and vibrations that travel through solid structures that create issues in the listening space and can often be disturbing to others. Room treatment can be costly and doesn’t mitigate structure borne-noises. Enter the Aperta Sub isolation stand that not only reduces these disturbances, but also delivers better sounding audio.

Expanding on the success of the Aperta line, IsoAcoustics created the Aperta Sub that effectively manages the energy from the subwoofer resulting in tighter bass response and greater clarity. Decoupling the subwoofer from its supporting surface, the Aperta Sub manages the energy from the subwoofer and prevents the physical transfer of energy through the supporting structure.

Greater bass definition
The design of the Aperta Sub is simplicity itself: it consists of top and bottom isolators, each connected by a rigid frame that provides a stable base and lifts the subwoofer off the floor. Aperta means ‘open’ in Italian, which describes the stands’ stylized design that creates open space and compliments its surroundings. The patented IsoAcoustics isolators are directional and designed to be aligned with the subwoofers drivers to maintain the energy on-axis. The Aperta Sub provides a high degree of isolation and cleans up the muddy low-frequencies to reveal more bass definition.

The Aperta Sub has an innovative shape that provides stability and avoids interference with existing subwoofer feet. It has a low-profile and compact design, measuring 10.5″ W x 11.5″ D x 1.3″ H (265mm x 290mm x 33mm) and is made to be used with front-firing and side-firing subwoofers that weigh up to 80 lbs (36.3kg). The Aperta Sub also includes carpet disks which feature 0.6″ (15mm) spikes that anchor into carpeted surfaces for a stronger connection.

The Aperta Sub is a must-have for home theater lovers, HiFi enthusiasts, and bass junkies of all ages and is especially beneficial for those who live in apartments or condos. The IsoAcoustics Aperta Sub will be available in the US today, May 18th, and in the UK on June 7th and will retail for $149.99USD/£149.
