Atacama - SLX 500 - Speaker Stands
The SLX Series is Atacama's professional range of speaker stands available in a wide range of height options and caters for when a larger top plate is required.
SLX Series are supplied in a Satin Black paint finish with Silver Metallic or Diamond White as a cost option.
Each pair of SLX stands include new 5mm thick laser cut carbon steel base plates, eight BZP 8mm adjustable floor spikes featuring stainless steel detailed top caps and upgraded High Load Trapezoidal (HLT) Isolation Gel Pads for the top plates.
It's recommend that each pair are mass loaded with Atabites in order to maximise their sonic potential (see below for quantity guidance and recommendations on the amount of mass filler to use).
Floor spikes and HLT Isolation Gel pads are included with each pair of stands, with the option of adding Atabite mass loading filler, top spikes and spike shoes if required.
As these speaker stands use isolation spikes, two sets of four Atacama HD-S (Nickel finish) spike shoes are recommended to protect delicate floor coverings.
SLX speaker stands are designed and manufactured in the UK.

Atabite quantity recommendation
Below are stated the recommended number of tubes to share between each pair of speaker stands. All vertical poles should be equally filled. Amounts are approximate and will not necessarily completely fill the tubes. It is suggested that you experiment with the exact amount to achieve the best sonic results for your particular system setup as the speakers, room acoustics, cable loom, positioning of the speakers and hifi components will determine how much Atabite filler to use to get the best sound from your speakers.
As a general rule, approximately half to two thirds full gives the best results. If you find the speakers are lacking high end detail and sounding dull at the lower end that usually means you have overfilled the stands and will need to reduce the volume of Atabites in each stand.
If the speakers are new, it is suggested that the exact amount of Atabites needed will best be determined once they are run in. Refer to your speaker instructions or contact the supplying retailer/ manufacturer for guidelines on running in recommendations.
