ASC MonitorStack 16 Inch Diameter - 2 BasePlates, 2 Bases and 2 Tops
16" Diameter MonitorStacks are designed for mid-field speakers and include a pair of MonitorStand tops, bases and Baseplates to dramatically improve monitor and room accuracy.
ASC MonitorStacks are broadband absorptive speaker stands comprised of specially built TubeTraps that sandwich your studio monitor between a top and bottom tube.
A typical monitor on a stand is located about half way between the floor and the ceiling. The floor/ceiling bounce returns back to the monitor in a phase. This imposes a phase cancel effect on the speaker’s efficiency, typically, the first cut is 74 Hz for 8’ ceilings, then, the engineer boosts 74 Hz in the mix unnecessarily.
The Monitor Stack upsets the vertical symmetry in the room. Two types of MonitorStands are used in the construction of your "MonitorStack": Tops and Bases. Standard sizing for Tops is 18" height, and standard sizing for Bases is 42" height. The lower Trap absorbs bass, the upper Trap is short of the ceiling and vents bass. The combination works well with the majority of mixing setups, eliminates the phase cancel effect and allows the engineer to work in a linear environment.
Tops are smaller, and allow the bass wavefront to be mildly absorbed and then rapidly weakened through expansion and diffusion over the top of the stack. As of 2016, MonitorStand Tops are equipped with an IsoThermal upgrade, nearly doubling their absorbing power below 200 Hz.
Bases are large, structurally reinforced units designed to withstand the weight of today's self amplified reference loudspeakers. The absorptive properties are also optimized for the function of eliminating floor-to-ceiling resonance: individually sealed pressure chambers contained within each unit allow for maximized absorption, independent of proximity to the loudspeaker. Combined with the complimentary IsoThermal upgrade, this provides for extremely rapid damping of vertical energy in the plane of the speaker.
Whether part of an AttackWall system or in a stand-alone configuration, ASC MonitorStacks give you more than just simple support for the physical placement of your monitoring system.
