Product Description

The Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer is a unique speaker mounting device that at once eliminates disruptive resonant coupling from the loudspeaker to the stand, while providing a stable base that reduces the recoil caused by the forward energy of the loudspeaker motion.

  • Improves transient response
  • Widens the sound field for better imaging
  • Tightens up the bass response for greater accuracy

Made from three basic components, the Recoil Stabilizer is essentially a platform for the loudspeaker that features a high-density urethane base that isolates the speaker from the shelf, monitor-bridge or stand. This effectively decouples the loudspeaker to eliminate vibration-borne resonance to the substructure. A heavy laser-cut steel plate is added and sandwiched between the isolation layer and a no-slip neoprene top. The steel plate introduces significant mass to the structure and serves to stabilize the speaker.

By reducing the backward 'recoil' energy as the speaker coil pushes energy forward, initial waveform transients no longer suffer lag and the sharpness of the resulting pulse is more defined. The result is significantly greater detail at all frequencies, with tighter bottom end and improved depth of field.

    The Recoil Stabilizers are great! A huge difference from regular foam pads. They sound more stationary and connected. I'm quite happy with them.

    My nearfield speakers sound better on the Recoil Stabilizers than they did without them. The bottom is solid, the vocals are clear and my speakers don't fall down. It's a great product.

    I was suspect at first, but after a few minutes with the recoil Stabilizers I realized how much difference they made. Especially on the low end. I'm keeping these. They work.

    Your mixes are only as good as your monitors and mix environment. When I began using the Primacoustic Recoil Stabilizer I immediately noticed improvements in the low end clarity of my near field monitors, to the point that I no longer needed to use a separate subwoofer. Incredibly, the detail of high frequencies and image localization were also improved.

I love these things.
General
Your general opinion of this product.
The bass tightened up as soon as I switched from the foam decouplers I had been using. The separation improved also. Each instrument was better defined. They look great as well. They are pricier than most products sold for this purpose, but to my mind it was money well spent.
