Magico, announced a newly developed spiked footer solution called the SPOD, based on the scientific design principles of Constrained Layer Damping (CLD). CLD is a method which is well documented and an extremely effective way to channel unwanted vibrations away from a component and its platform. SPOD provides an effective way to couple Q-Series, S-Series (MkI/MkII) and V-Series loudspeakers to the floor while dissipating unwanted mechanical energy away from the enclosure.
According to the press release, demonstrable results include increased dynamics, enhanced focus, greater resolution, and a closer representation of the original musical performance as it was intended during the recording process.
The main structure of the SPOD is formed from multiple machined aluminum sections which when assembled form a vertical stack. A solid pure copper substrate center round is sandwiched by a top and bottom layer of aluminum that when compressed together facilitates the Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) function. An adjustable spiked footer threads into the SPOD base and when locked into position provides solid coupling to the floor.
Magico SPOD is available for immediate shipping in three versions, the SPOD 8, for direct installation on S1Mk II, S3Mk II, S5Mk II, V2, V3, Q1, Q3 and Q5, the SPOD 8 plus, for direct installation on S1 and S3 (in the S3 version a new outrigger is included) and the SPOD 6, for direct installation on S5.
