Too little or too much pad deflection will not work to decouple energy transfer. When the equipment weight is properly loading the EVP, the pads will compress some, but not fully, allowing the equipment to float. When properly loaded, the EVP will evenly compress about 10 – 30%. Following the steps will insure proper deflection and performance.
- Determine the weight of the equipment to isolate
- Enter weight into EVP Calculator (below) and select Pounds or Kilograms.
- Decide on 2 INCH or 4 INCH square EVP.
- Decide on number of EVPs (3, 4 or 5)
- Determine proper EVP density (LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH)
- Choose between RUBBER OR FELT.
- Place order
As with all our products, there are measurements backing the claims, along with a 30 day money back guarantee if not satisfied.
2” vs. 4”: Generally 4” EVPs should be selected for subwoofers and full-range speakers, and/or when you need the stability, or the load handling. 2” EVPs works for most electronics. More than four EVPs can be utilized.
Rubber vs. Felt: Generally, select rubber when you don’t want it to move, i.e. under floor standing loudspeakers or a guitar amplifier. Select felt when the equipment will be resting on a shelf of some kind, allowing you to easily slide it into position without scratching the shelf.
