GAIA Speaker Isolation Feet

GAIA Speaker Isolation Feet

Postby 10ovr » Wed Jul 19, 2017 2:41 pm

So Harry ,,After reading this ( Optimal results are heard by installing these units with the logo facing the listening position, or rotated 180 degrees, to align the isolators with the speaker’s motive forces, lift and place the speakers into position as the GAIA lower isolator will adhere to the supporting surface: ) What did you find best for the KEF Blades being that they have side speakers ??? I have some KEF Blade 2s and the GAIA II coming in next week,,,,It's good to see you back on the Forum ,,,,Thanks Tim

The GAIA isolators are a must on the KEF Blades, any version of them. Haven't experimented yet with rotating them as the speakers are so heavy, they are sitting on a 1" thick glass plate, and rotating those isolators is a really hard job as they stick to the glass every time you lower them down,

Have fun and let me know your results.

Glass gives a more transparent sound.
