SVS Subwoofer Isolation System Improves Bass Performance, Makes You a Better Neighbor

The screw-in elastomer Isolation Feet decouple subwoofers from the floor resulting in cleaner sounding bass and less buzz/rattle in the room while significantly reducing floor vibrations that can annoy neighbors.

Girard, OH - October 2, 2013 - SVS, a worldwide leader in high performance home audio products, announces availability of the SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System, an affordable and discreet alternative to traditional platforms and risers designed to improve sound quality while reducing pesky floor vibrations that can cause sonic rifts between sub owners and their neighbors or roommates. The Isolation System comes in packages of four (standard) or six elastomer feet (larger subwoofers), with three popular thread sizes to accommodate virtually any subwoofer, SVS brand or otherwise.


Decoupling a subwoofer from its surroundings has a number of positive effects. For one, the floor doesn't offer its own sonic signature or boom to the performance; resulting in cleaner, tighter bass. Plus, as anyone who's ever cranked a subwoofer up to reference levels can attest, the buzzing and rattling of dishes, light fixtures, furniture and other room dcor that results can be distracting and take away from the subwoofer's true calling. With the SVS SoundPath Isolation System installed, a subwoofer is unburdened by the room it resides in and free to produce crisp, impactful lows.

Audio science dictates that a bass drum is more likely to cause consternation among neighbors and roommates than a flute, even when played at the exact same volume. Why? Bass from movies and music is heard more perceptibly than mids or highs because the longer wavelengths of low frequency sound waves travel further and pass more freely through air and matter at an atomic level. To address the complaints that can arise from having a killer subwoofer, SVS extensively researched sound performance using accelerometer and acoustic measurements to develop the SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System, engineering it to significantly reduce floor noise by absorbing the vibrations that normally get transferred into floor.

"Believe it or not, a common question the SVS support team gets asked is, How can I enjoy my subwoofer as loud as I want without bothering my roommates or neighbors?" said Gary Yacoubian, SVS president. "The SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System was developed for audio fans who want better bass performance without the room effects, and also for those who live in close proximity to neighbors, so they can enjoy movies and music without disturbing the sleeping baby next door, studying roommates or the elderly couple playing bridge below them."

The optimized durometer elastomer feet that make up the system feature a durable anodized steel outer shell and steel machine screws with thread sizes of ¼-20, M6 or M8, to fit almost any brand of subwoofer. Super easy to install with an understated yet elegant finish, the SVS SoundPath Subwoofer Isolation System is available now for $49.99 (four foot system) and $69.99 (six foot system).
