Atacama recommend Atabite -7.5HD inert filler to achieve maximum sonic performance. Up to 84KG can be used per pair.
In order to get the best possible sound from your speaker stands, it is reccomended that the main columns are filled with a high density inert filler .This will reduce ringing and give a sonically dead platform from which to position bookshelf style speakers. By adjusting the amount of filler used, you can experiment to find the optimum amount of filler to suit your speakers .Featuring new zinc coated micro-discs, the NEW UPGRADED Atabite inert filler now gives increased density to volume over the old Atabite inert filler and has a uniformed particulate size giving consistant sonic performance. The Zinc coating reduces any oxidisation and degradation and enhances the visual aesthetics.
PLEASE NOTE- Atabites are supplied by weight, not volume. (7.5 KG tubs). Some settling of contents may occur in transit. The maximum approximate weight of Atabites that can be used in each pair of HMS 2.1 600mm speaker stands is 84kgs.
Sonic results will depend on speaker stand positioning, type of speaker, room size, type of electronics and cabling, listening position and personal taste. However, as a general rule filling the stands approximately two thirds full generally gives the best results
