The following is a press release issued by Magico.
March 24, 2017 – Magico, LLC the Leader in High Performance Loudspeaker Design and Manufacture, is pleased to announce a newly developed spiked footer solution called the SPOD.
The SPOD is based on the scientific design principles of Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) and provides an effective way to couple Q-Series, S-Series (MkI / MkII) and V-Series loudspeakers to the floor while dissipating unwanted mechanical energy away from the enclosure. Demonstrable results include increased dynamics, enhanced focus, greater resolution, and a closer representation of the original musical performance as it was intended during the recording process.
The main structure of the SPOD is formed from multiple machined aluminum sections which when assembled form a vertical stack. A solid pure copper substrate center round is sandwiched by a top and bottom layer of aluminum that when compressed together facilitates the Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) function. An adjustable spiked footer threads into the SPOD base and when locked into position provides solid coupling to the floor.
