Speaker suspension bridge – Stainless steel top
The speaker isolation suspension bridge, to lift your speakers, floating them in the air and isolating them from the floor.
This is a slightly more economical option than the brass top version, but works just as well and has a different more Art Deco look.
The sound is kept out of the floor, it lifts the whole soundscape higher in the room, gives it more air and a richness and warmth that you don’t get when the floor joins in with the performance. The smallest details become clear and staging is so precise, it is a delight for your ears. They give your speakers an instantly audible and substantial upgrade.
We were not sure what what the results would be when we made these, but we are very pleased with the way they work, they have far exceeded expectations. We suspect that downstairs neighbours may prefer it too, in tests about half the power transmitted though the floor was cut out.
The speaker suspension bridges here will take speakers up to 9″ wide (230mm) from 25Kg up to about 70Kg in weight. They come in sets of four (two for each speaker). Other widths can be easily catered for, though we would need a bit of notice to make them to order, typically about a week. A set are shown in the image section made for a pair Aspara horn speakers, a 8″ wide speaker.
The main bar is cut from 8mm Stainless steel, so it is very stiff and robust. The fittings are made from hand turned and polished brass with a lacquer finish to prevent tarnishing with stainless steel dome nuts to finish the top. The magnets are neodymium with a nickel plating and have proved very reliable, showing no sign of deterioration after several years in service.
Please be aware that the magnets are powerful and that extreme care should be taken if you decide to disassemble the bridge for any reason. The speaker cables should also be kept at least a few inches from the bridges.
