If the output from the sub seems uneven, you need to try and find a location where it produces a less lumpy response. A good tip for doing this is to temporarily place the sub where you normally sit to mix, and then listen at different places around the edges of the room while playing back a same level chromatic (semitone) scale of sine waves from a sampler until you find the spot that produce the most consistent level across all notes.
Of course, you do still need to attend to room reflections by adding some basic acoustic treatment — but that’s another subject and one that we have covered on numerous occasions in our Studio SOS series.
Atacama offer a wide range of speaker stands with a choice of colours, dimensions and style to satisfy most requirements .
If you already have a pair of simple foam speaker platforms, you can improve their performance simply by gluing a heavy floor tile to the top. Ordinary contact adhesive works fine for this. Then you can either glue some kitchen mat to the upper surface, to provide some grip, or use Blu–Tack, as discussed earlier, between the tile and the loudspeaker.
Centre Channel speakers require dedicated stands as they tend to be of unconventional dimensions. The CC Series provides that solution and are available in a wide range of height options.
The SLX Series is a professional quality stand which caters for larger bookshelf speakers where an increase in the footprint is required to ensure optimum stability.
