Carbide Audio introduces the new Evo update to the Carbide Base audio footer. Far from a simple evolution, every part except for the internal ViscoRing™ was redesigned to further enhance vibration control performance.
Improved coupling better allows low amplitude vibrations to pass into the device to be dissipated as heat. The following changes were made to improve coupling:
Updated Lower Isolation Stage
Updates to the lower ball bearing isolation stage better allow small horizontal footer movements in response to low amplitude vibrations – a critical component for the isolation of micro vibrations. The following changes to were made to the lower isolation stage:
Progressive Shape Factor
Our patent pending Progressive Shape Factor technology has further evolved. As the ViscoRing™ bulges under compression, ridges within the housing progressively brace the bulging surfaces more gradually as the load initially increases. This results in better isolation performance when supporting equipment on the lightweight end of the weight range for a given ViscoRing™.
While performance in the critical bass and midrange frequencies is similar, the high frequency performance has improved with the updated Evo version.
