GRAND PRIX AUDIO APEX MINI FOOTERS
Please select either 3 or 4 pack from drop down menu above.
This listing includes the following
- Apex Mini footers (3 or 4)
- Apex Mini hardened steel bearings (3 or 4)
- Component interface (3 or 4)
Sometimes you just don’t have the height in your rack to fit APEX supports under a unit – but you still want APEX performance. For that situation we now provide the APEX Mini, a scaled version of the APEX, using exactly the same, proven materials and geometry but designed specifically as a component coupler. Only 1.175”/30mm tall, it uses a smaller diameter ball than the standard and XL versions, so it’s not compatible with the APEX Levelers, but what it does do is provide the maximum possible performance from a more compact package. The Mini is almost 0.225”/6mm shorter than the standard APEX. That might not sound like much, but in many cases it makes all the difference.
Please note: If you are looking for a solution for your rack, please select from Apex Standard or Apex XL models. Contact us for help on selecting the correct leveler thread for your rack.
Apex footers might look like classic ‘isolation’ cones, but they are far more sophisticated and effective than that.
They combine a hardened steel (or silicon-nitride ceramic option for Apex Standard or Apex XL) ball interface with a dual-purpose isolation/dissipation support. The external, structural elements are pressure formed from carbon composites, the void within the cone filled with a specially developed, proprietary polymer that decouples the upper element from the base. Originally developed for aerospace applications, this polymer exhibits extraordinary energy dissipation properties. The precision moulded cup offers a perfect contact surface for the ball, ensuring optimum energy transfer into the carbon cone and then, via the cone’s large internal surface area, into the polymer. The end result is remarkable management of spurious energy, whether that energy originates within the supported component, or is transmitted by the structure that supports it.
