Whats Up Guys Brad Here In This Video, Ill
be reviewing SvS’s soundpath subwoofer Isolation system now just how much of a difference did these isolation feet make and should you consider checking them out for yourself well. Let’s get into it and find out now Previously I did an overview video on SvS’s sound path Subwoofer Isolation system along with their tri-band wireless audio adapter now In that video I talked about what you get in the box as well as what the isolation feet are made out of so I won’t really be covering that here and in all honesty what you get is fairly straightforward and simple. Just the isolation feet and a few sets of screws for various thread sizes, So there isn’t much to go over anyway and to be completely clear here. Svs did loan me a single set of isolation feet in order. review them but they didn’t pay me anything for this review and I don’t get to keep the product for free after I’m done with it.
My Opinions Are My Own And Svs Will
be seeing this video for the first time when it goes public on Youtube. So i’ve actually been curious about Svs’s isolation feed for a while now having read and heard about the benefits of decoupling your subwoofers and speakers from various online forums and Youtube videos. If you don’t know what decoupling is it basically weakens the interaction between your subwoofer or speaker and the floor with the intent being to eliminate the energy transferred between the two now before we go any further.

the channel at no cost to you okay Now where was I decoupling Ah got it thanks so decoupling actually has a few benefits for starters reducing base energy through the floor also means reducing the base energy through your walls as well, which can help reduce things buzzing and rattling throughout your room. This also means that base energy won’t transfer as much to other rooms of your house or even outside of your home, which can’t help if you’re constantly disturbing the people living with you or your neighbors or both honestly and because decoupling lifts your subwoofer or speakers off. The floor just ever so slightly? This can mean cleaner, tighter sounding bass that can end up improving your overall dynamics. Okay okay so enough about decoupling we get it Did the isolation feet themselves actually do anything do they really cut down on buzzes and rattles throughout your room and can they actually improve your sound quality or is it all just marketing Bs well no to the marketing Bs and yes to everything else well to a degree. Let me explain so when I attached the isolation feed to one of my PB2000 pros and played an audio demo using only that subwoofer.
I Had Literally No Expectations And Prepared
for the worst. I mean how could four little elastomer feet attached to my subwoofer make a difference at all well. I was actually pretty blown away to be completely honest and the first thing I noticed right. Away gone was this annoying rattle that my walls made whenever a really low bass note would hit Think of the opening to Godzilla King of the monsters. Those three Godzilla stomps that got progressively louder sounded like they were wreaking havoc on my inner walls without the isolation feet attached and now they were dead silent.
Its Something That I Wish I Could Capture
using a microphone. But unfortunately, I haven’t been able to hear it in the tests. I’ve done. It also helped in reducing some smaller rattles throughout the room, though I had already done quite a bit to minimize them anyway now Something else. I noticed as a byproduct of the walls not rattling anymore.
Localization Of Base Was Drastically Reduced To The
point where it was non–existent before attaching the isolation feet and with the walls rattling anytime, There was a base heavy scene I. Like I could localize where the base was coming from even when running three subwoofers because the right wall doesn’t rattle at the same time or as much as the left wall. Now even though bass below a certain frequency is non-directional. Any type of buzzing or rattling near your subwoofers can make it seem like bass is coming from that area instead of all around you with the isolation feet attached. I just couldn’t tell where the bass was coming from anymore at all it was honestly awesome.

Now Unfortunately, Its Really Difficult If Not Impossible
to capture the differences. I’m hearing with just a regular microphone, so I wanted to try out a little idea. I had I thought it’d be fun to put a glass of water on a board in front of the subwoofer play a scene without the isolation feet then put the isolation feet. The subwoofer and play the same seam to see if there were any changes in the ripples in the water created by the base energy Now I’m not really scientific at all but fun to try out. Nonetheless, and guess what it didn’t really show much because I’m not a scientist or Steven Spielberg and I Don’t work for engine syncing them up and playing them side by side.
They Look Identical For The Most Part.
If we zoom in really close we can actually see that the side with the isolation feet does in fact have fewer smaller ripples, which I guess could technically mean that less bass energy is being transferred through the floor. But this was hardly a scientific test and more for fun so to make up for it let’s look at some measurements in room eq wizard to see if there are any changes to. frequency response before talking about the impacts to sound quality so jumping right into rew. Our first measurement is of the SvS PB2000 Pro without the isolation feed attached.
This Subwoofer Is Placed In The Front
right corner of the room, and this measurement was taken at the main listening position. Now if we turn on the measurement with the isolation feed attach which is the green line. We can see that nothing really changed any variation in response which as you can see for yourself is incredibly minor. I’ll chalk up to just being a margin of error. I wanted to also measure my second PB2000 Pro, which is in the front left corner of the room to see if we get similar results.
The Blue Line Here Is Without
the isolation feet, and if we switch on the measurement with the isolation feet we can see that again. There really wasn’t a change at all or anything that would be noticeable to our ears. I also wanted to do near-field measurements to take the room out of the equation and see if we get any measurable differences. The first measurement here is the front right corner sub with no feet attached turning on the measurement with the isolation feet attached and here again we really see no change other than a slight reduction in overall volume. This was totally on me as I didn’t move the microphone to make up for the fact that the sub was now a couple of inches off the ground so the microphone technically wasn’t pointed at the exact same spot my bad and I do this again on the measurements for the front left corner subwoofer and we can see that it’s a similar thing to the front right subwoofer just.
A Bald Dude Not Adjusting The Mic To
make up for the extra height. The isolation feat added so much for making up for that previous Jurassic Park Scientific blunder brad so as expected. There were no real differences when looking at the measurements between having the isolation feet off versus on so there wasn’t any difference in sound quality than either correct well. Actually things did sound quite a bit tighter and cleaner than before. There was a certain level of clarity that I noticed just wasn’t there before it’s really hard to describe, but I was actually shocked because the best way.
I Can Explain It Is Exactly How
SvS has worded it on their website tighter and cleaner sounding bass and better sonic clarity and dynamics Initially, I thought this was down to the policy B effect. I believe I was having the PCB effect but as I kept doing a and B comparisons. I couldn’t help but notice the improvements when the isolation feet were attached now Don’t get me wrong. This didn’t suddenly make the bass coming out of my subwoofers vastly different or incredibly superior in every way. I mean I didn’t feel the bass in my home theater sounded bad before at all but adding the isolation feat definitely improved things and I think the best way I can describe it is that it cleaned up the base and added that final finishing touch it was missing before so would I recommend checking out Svs’s sound path subwoofer isolation system well.
Ill Just Say This Svs Sent Me The
single pack of four isolation feet to review I was really impressed by them more than I thought I’d be so much so that. I couldn’t help but wonder what my system with four subwoofers would sound like with isolation feet on every single one, so I bought three more sets and will be purchasing the one Svs sent me and I gotta say I won’t be going back to not using them. I really do feel that the claims of improved dynamics sonic clarity, along with tighter cleaner bass are actually true at least in my system and I think it’s worth mentioning that there really isn’t a negative impact here. I still get the same pant flapping bass and chest slam.
I Did Before Just Without The Annoying
room, rattling and buzzing so yeah. I definitely think these are worth checking out. They’re not insanely pricey at fifty dollars for a four pack and seventy dollars for a six pack, but it can get costly if you have multiple subwoofers and some. People may not feel that the improvement in sound quality is worth the extra cost and that’s honestly okay.
I Personally Enjoy The Improvements That Im Getting
enough that I do feel it’s worth the nearly two hundred dollars. I’ve spent buying all four sets with that said If you’re on the fence, but want to try them out. I definitely recommend buying them from either Svs who have a 45–day risk-free in-home trial or amazon who have a more standard 30–day return policy You’ll find links to both in the description below if you enjoyed this video and found it helpful feel free to give it a thumbs up as it will help this video reach more people if you have any questions about SvS’s sound path subwoofer isolation system or if you use them yourself and want to share your experience with others leave a comment down below.
