MonitorStand

$479.00$3,200.00

A monitor speaker stand is a studio must. A typical monitor speaker on a stand is located about half way between the floor and the ceiling. The floor/ceiling bounce returns back to the monitor out of phase. This imposes a phase cancel effect on the speaker’s output; for example, the first cut is around 74 Hz for 8’ ceilings, causing the engineer to boost 74 Hz in the mix unnecessarily.

The ASC MonitorStand “stack” upsets the vertical symmetry in the room and minimizes this negative acoustic feedback. The lower Trap (Base) absorbs bass, whereas the upper Trap (Top) stops short of the ceiling and vents bass. The combination eliminates the phase cancel effect and lets the engineer work in a linear environment. Whether part of an ASC ATTACK Wall system or in a stand-alone configuration, ASC MonitorStands give you more than just simple support for the physical placement of your monitoring system; it also dramatically improves the monitor and room accuracy.

Works with nearly every monitor speaker made today, from a little Focal CMS65 to the large Genelec 8361 or Westlake BSSM12 — and everything in between.

Description

A monitor speaker stand is a studio must. A typical monitor on a stand is located about half way between the floor and the ceiling. The floor/ceiling bounce returns back to the monitor out of phase. This imposes a phase cancel effect on the speaker’s output; for example, the first cut is around 74 Hz for 8’ ceilings, causing the engineer to boost 74 Hz in the mix unnecessarily.

With ASC, studio monitors are nested into a “Monitor Stack”, comprised of specially built TubeTraps. The Monitor Stack upsets the vertical symmetry in the room.

The lower Trap absorbs bass, whereas the upper Trap is short of the ceiling and vents bass. The combination eliminates the phase cancel effect and lets the engineer work in a linear environment. Whether part of an ASC ATTACK Wall system or in a stand-alone configuration, ASC MonitorStands give you more than just simple support for the physical placement of your monitoring system; it also dramatically improves the monitor and room accuracy.

For your next monitor speaker stand, look no further than the ASC MonitorStand. Built in a wide variety of sizes and customizations, they can accommodate nearly any monitor speaker built today. Using near-field Focal CMS65? No problem, select our smallest Model-9. Using some large ATC SCM50ASL? No problem, use our highly popular Model-16. How about an extra-wide, extra powerful set of Westlake BSSM12 beauties? No problem, use a pair of Model-16 side-by-side.

Round-top Genelecs? Side firing Barefoots? Top firing Focals? Yep, yep, and yep! We can build custom monitor “bridges” to allow top performance without altering the voice of your speaker. Call today for pricing, examples, and details.

Two types of MonitorStands are used in the construction of your “Monitor Stack”: Tops and Bases.

Bases

These are large, structurally reinforced units designed to withstand the weight of today’s self amplified reference loudspeakers.  The absorptive properties are also optimized for the function of eliminating floor-to-ceiling resonance: individually sealed pressure chambers contained within each unit allow for maximized absorption, independent of proximity to the loudspeaker.  Combined with the complimentary IsoThermal upgrade, this provides for extremely rapid damping of vertical energy in the plane of the speaker.

Tops

Tops are smaller, and allow the bass wavefront to be mildly absorbed and then rapidly weakened through expansion and diffusion over the top of the stack.  As of 2016, MonitorStand Tops are equipped with an IsoThermal upgrade, nearly doubling their absorbing power below 200 Hz.

Sizes

Standard

  • Base: 30″ and 42″ (42″ is our most common)
    • Note: This is the edge-to-edge dimension, unlike our standard TubeTraps which are 1/2″ longer
  • Top: 18″

This combination works well for the majority of mixing setups, elevating the acoustic center of the reference monitor loudspeaker to be level with the ears of the engineer.

Custom

Customizing the height of the Base unit is frequently done to accommodate unusual loudspeaker shapes and sizes.

  • Base max height: 48″
  • Top max height: 24″
