Auralex MoPAD Isolation Pad

Prevent the interference of resonant frequencies and improve the accuracy of your monitors with MoPAD Isolation Pads.
Auralex MoPAD Monitor Isolation Pads provide sonic isolation between your monitors and whatever your monitors are resting on, instantly improving the accuracy of your entire monitoring system. Each MoPAD is sized 12" x 4", and designed to use 2 pads per monitor.

No matter how good your mixer, mics, preamps, cables, and other pieces of gear that you've invested in, you're not truly hearing what your recordings sound like until you isolate your monitors from their environment. Here's why: Everything has a resonant frequency at which it vibrates like a tuning fork. Everything in your studio that vibrates contributes artifacts to your sound, so why would you let your monitors acoustically couple to a shelf, a rack, or the meter bridge of your mixing board?

Once you've bought the best gear and acoustically treated your room, what's left? Improving your monitors' accuracy. Your loudspeakers are the most critical components you use to verify the quality of your work.

This is where the Auralex MoPADs come in. MoPADs provide sonic isolation between your monitors and whatever your monitors are resting on, instantly improving the accuracy of your entire monitoring system. MoPADs are affordable, easy to implement and really effective at decoupling your monitors from your room and all its contents.

"Great for your monitors!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have the BIG KRK 10's (3 way monitors) these things are 55lbs each speaker! The bass is crazy loud which has tons of vibration! I have these monitors on my workstation desk of course (they don't fit on stands) and without the pads things on the desk hop around..For example, if I set a water bottle on the desk without the foam pads, that water bottle falls over, no joke. With the foam pads, the water inside the water bottle doesn't even shake! I had fun with this, almost like the termpur pedic bed things with the wine glass! Overall, these are great..A bit pricey considering you can buy a block of foam from thefoamfactory.com for only $20 and cut it yourself but hey, if you want to spend the money on these it is worth it! I suggest these to anyone with large monitors/sub woofers! It also helps with the sound, everyone knows vibration kills your audio! Get these, you won't be dissapointed! Visit my youtube channel for reviews, I will have a video on these very soon! youtube.com/bonezproductionz
