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.
