The Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer is a unique speaker mounting device that eliminates disruptive resonant coupling from the loudspeaker to the stand. 10,5"X13" Horizontal
Designed for nearfield monitors, it provides a stable base that reduces the recoil caused by the forward energy of the loudspeaker motion.
The Recoil Stabilizer is a loudspeaker platform that combines three basic components: a high-density urethane foam base to isolate the speaker from the shelf, monitor-bridge or stand; a heavy ¼" laser-cut steel plate; and a thin neoprene top surface. The foam effectively decouples the loudspeaker to eliminate vibration-borne resonance that invariably introduces phase anomalies, while the steel plate introduces significant mass to the structure, stabilizing the speaker. The no-slip surface coats the top to ensure the monitor stays firmly in place.
By reducing the backward 'recoil' as the speaker coil pushes energy forward, the initial transient no longer suffers lag and the sharpness of the resulting impulse is more defined. Upon first listening, one immediately notices more punch and extended low end. Upon further listening, one begins to notice greater detail at all frequencies, improved transient response and more defined depth of field. This not only makes mixing easier, but since the Recoils eliminate unknown resonance from contaminating the sound, your mixes immediately translate better to other rooms and audio systems.
I didn't think these would really make much of a difference, so I was surprised when they did. They're hard to a/b with and without them, with any accuracy, but it seems they really do kind of clean up the image and things a bit. They are not like game changers, but I would say worth the couple hundred for a pair.
