Aperta SUB

Discover greater bass definition.

INTRODUCTION

About the Aperta SUB

With a sculpted aluminum frame and patented IsoAcoustics integrated isolators, the Aperta Sub introduces a new standard in acoustic isolation for subwoofers. The Aperta Sub decouples the subwoofers from the supporting surface to prevent the physical transfer of energy that excites the supporting surface, causes room rattle and disturbs your neighbors. The patented IsoAcoustics isolation also prevents the subwoofer vibrations from reflecting on the supporting surface and being conducted back up the subwoofer cabinet. Managing these reflections eliminates muddy bass smear and reveals greater clarity and definition.

Design

Low profile, innovative shape

The Aperta Sub has a low-profile design at 10.5” (265mm) wide x 11.5” (290mm) depth x 1.3” (33mm) height and is designed to be used with front firing and side-firing subwoofers that weigh up to 80 lbs (36.3 kg). Innovative shape allows the Aperta Sub to be positioned directly underneath the subwoofer cabinet without interference with the existing subwoofer feet.

Carpet disks are included with the Aperta Sub for use on carpeted surfaces. The carpet disks provide a strong connection through the carpet to provide a solid foundation for the Aperta Sub.

Built for Bass

More bass, less rattle

We are hard-wired to pick up bass rhythms more than other tones, and low bass frequencies allow the listener to feel a deep syncopated connection to their favorite music or movies.

With a large driver producing low frequencies, the subwoofer creates a large amount of energy that can excite the supporting surface, interfere with other audio components and annoy your neighbors.

The Aperta Sub provides a high degree of isolation and cleans up the muddy low frequency sound, resulting in tighter bass response and greater clarity. The unique patented isolators are directional and are designed to be positioned with the logo facing forward, to resist lateral deflection and oscillations, for greater accuracy and focus.

The Aperta Sub is a must-have for home theater lovers, HiFi enthusiasts, and bass junkies of all ages and is especially beneficial for those who live in apartments or condos.

FAQs

The Aperta sub is designed for isolating subwoofers. It has a low profile and innovative shape to avoid interference with existing feet. Subwoofers are often positioned on carpeted floor, so the Aperta Sub includes Carpet Disks to provide a strong connection through the carpet to provide a solid foundation for the Aperta Sub. The Aperta Sub is available only in black. The other Aperta models are designed for bookshelf speakers. They feature our patented isolation and have built-in tilt adjustment that can be dialed-in 6.5 degrees upwards and downwards to optimize your speaker placement and focus. The Aperta, Aperta200 and Aperta300 are available in black and silver.

Yes, each Aperta Sub includes 4 Carpet Discs to be assembled in conjunction with thick pile carpets. These Disks provide a strong connection with the flooring below and make sure your subwoofer still has a solid base.

The Aperta Sub is quite possibly the simplest of our products to use. With a sculpted aluminum frame, the Aperta Sub is delivered in the box ready for use. This means all you need to do is simply place it underneath your sub and enjoy listening to the benefits of IsoAcoustics patented isolation technology.

For best results, we recommend positioning the stands with the IsoAcoustics logo facing forward, in the same direction as the driver. For a clean look, you can turn the stands backwards so that the logo is not visible.

The IsoAcoustics patented isolators are directional. They are shaped with an internal taper and concave that prevents off axis movements and keeps the energy on-axis and aligned with the direction of the transducer’s travel

 

For side-firing subwoofers, the Aperta Sub will work best turned sideways so the isolators are aligned with the driver.

We recommend measuring the dimensions of the Aperta Sub against the flat bottom surface of your subwoofer to verify how they will fit. The subwoofer should be the same size or larger than the stand. A few inches of overhang on each side is acceptable. We recommend using our online calculator to determine if the Aperta Sub is the best fit for your speakers. If you have any questions or concerns, you can submit an inquiry to IsoAcoustics for review through the online calculator. A representative from IsoAcoustics will review the details and respond by email.

No, the Aperta Sub does not feature height or tilt adjustment. The other models in the Aperta series feature tilt adjustment because they are designed to be used with bookshelf speakers which require proper focus to ear level. The Aperta Sub is designed for use with subwoofers which do not require tilt adjustment.

The ApertaSub is 10.5” W x 11.5” D (265x290mm) and has a low profile at 1.3” (33mm) in height. The Aperta sub has a rigid sculpted aluminum frame and an innovative shape that allows the Aperta Sub to be positioned directly underneath the subwoofer cabinet without interference with the existing subwoofer feet. The Aperta Sub does not require assembly, includes carpet disks for installation on thick carpeted surfaces and features more advanced isolators that provide superior performance.

The ISO-200Sub measures 7.8” W x 10” D (200x255mm) and is taller at 3.75” (95mm). The ISO-200Sub is made of high-impact ABS and the poles are made of stainless steel. Some assembly is required. Carpet disks are not available for the ISO-200 Sub. A rigid platform (Ex. Granite or marble) is recommended when positioned on thick carpet surfaces.

The ApertaSub is a single unit that is very easy to setup underneath a subwoofer. It is a fixed size that does not fit all subwoofer sizes. The Aperta Sub includes Carpet Disks to provide a strong connection through carpeted surfaces.

The ISO-Puck models require multiple units underneath each subwoofer. The position of the ISO-Puck isolators can be adjusted, so the ISO-Pucks can be used with subwoofers of any size. The setup using the ISO-Pucks requires a little more effort to correctly position them underneath a subwoofer and orient them correctly. Carpet disks cannot be used with the ISO-Puck models. When used on a thick carpeted floor, one option is positioning a piece of granite or marble on top of the carpet.

The ApertaSub is a single unit that is very easy to setup underneath a subwoofer. It is a fixed size that does not fit all subwoofer sizes. The Aperta Sub includes Carpet Disks to provide a strong connection through carpeted surfaces. The ApertaSub has a weight capacity of 80 lbs (36.3 KG) and also works well with lighter subwoofers.

The OREA models require multiple units underneath each subwoofer. The position of the OREA isolators can be adjusted, so the OREAs can be used with subwoofers of any size. The setup using the OREAs requires a little more effort to correctly position them underneath a subwoofer and orient them correctly. Carpet disks are not available for the OREA models. When used on a thick carpeted floor, one option is positioning a piece of granite or marble on top of the carpet. The OREA models each work over a narrower weight range and provide excellent performance within these ranges.
