Auralex SubDude-HT

As part of its redesign, the newly announced Auralex SubDude-HT features a lower profile and a larger platform.

Auralex's newly redesigned SubDude-HT is designed to isolate a variety of speaker products ranging from residential loudspeakers and subwoofers, to PA speakers and guitar cabinets.

When it comes to the design of audio systems whether it’s the home or even in commercial environments, it can be easy to overlook the importance of acoustics. While it may be easy to forget about acoustics when the focus of clients is typically on electronics, a properly designed listening environment is paramount to the overall quality of a sound system.

Auralex’s new SubDude-HT builds upon the attributes of the company’s original SubDude speaker isolation platform to allow electronics professionals to isolate residential products such as large speakers and subwoofers, and commercial products that include PA speakers, and guitar and bass cabinets. Auralex says the platform incorporates 3/4-inch velour-covered MDF and one inch of the company’s Platfoam material that decouples the platform from the floor. The company adds the platform measures 22 inches wide by 17 inches deep by 1.3/4 inches tall to help it support a number of speaker products.

Once the SubDude-HT is placed under a speaker or subwoofer its isolation capabilities are said to help clean up the muddiness that emanate from the floor to create more accurate sound.
