GRAND PRIX AUDIO APEX XL FOOTERS
This listing includes the following
- Apex Standard footers (3 or 4)
- Apex silicone nitride bearings (3 or 4)
The new Apex XL increases the height and diameter of the cone, doubling the volume of the internal polymer and increasing its interface area with the external structure. The result is significantly greater energy dispersion and a huge step up in performance.
The musical impact of the reduction in noise floor and lower microphony needs to be heard to be believed, bringing performers to life and allowing their music to breathe.
Please note: This product requires GPA Levelers to work with any racks. There are multiple thread sizes available on the levelers which can be purchased here. If you do not know which thread size you require, please contact us directly for further help.
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.
