Product Description

Atacama SMD-Z 7HD Atabites is a tub of high density filler designed for mass loading of your speaker stands. Delta shaped chips interlock together creating minimum air gaps and are more effective in practice than using sand, allowing your speakers to reach their full sonic potential. Supplied in 7Kg tubs.

Why fill your speaker stands?

Despite most stand-mount speakers being referred to instead as "bookshelf speakers", we'd always recommend putting such speakers on proper speaker stands rather than on a bookshelf (!) and you'll only get the best sound from your fillable speaker stands if you fill them with a high mass filler like these Atabites. This will "deaden" the speaker stands, reducing any "ringing" and the increase their mass to deliver improved bass response.

How much should I put in?

We recommend filling most stands half way up using Atabites, then testing the bass response in your room, then progressively fill the stands up a little more until bass response is upto an acceptable level.

Maximum Approximate Weight: 

Below is a list of maximum approximate weight of atabites that can be used for each pair of of atacama speaker stands:

- Nexus 5, Moseco 5 = 7Kg
- Nexus 6, Moseco 6, Duo 6 = 10.4Kg
- Nexus 7, Moseco 7, Duo 7 = 12.2Kg
- Nexus 10, Moseco 10 = 21Kg

- SL/SLX200 = 7.2kg
- SL/SLX300 = 15.2kg
- SL/SLX400 = 24kg
- SL/SLX500 = 32.8kg
- SL/SLX600 = 41.6kg
- SL/SLX700 = 48.8kg
- SL/SLX1000 = 68kg

HMS1.1 & Moseco XL 500mm = 34kg
HMS1.1 & Moseco XL 600mm = 41.8kg
HMS1.1 700mm = 55.4Kg
HMS2.1 = 84kg

How many tubs do I need?

For speaker stands with thin centre columns, 1 tub should be enough, but for most speaker stands with more substantial fillable columns, we recommend 2 tubs. We've shown some examples of how many tubs you'll need in a list on the left. If in doubt, feel free to contact us and we can recommend how many tubs you'll need.

    I purchased the Atacama Mostec 6 speaker stands at the same time purchased Atacama Atabites. It is deemed to one of the items that upgrade the speaker stands to make them even better & wow!! The sound difference will put a broad smile on any one face. It increases mass and reduced ringing. It is well worth investing in.
