Auralex - SpeakerDudes or MoPads? For Mackie HR824 Mk2

Hello!

So I'm looking for some isopads for my Mackies HR824,

I'm choosing between this two:

Auralex SpeakerDudes Speaker Isolation Stands (MoPads) | eBay

Auralex MoPads Studio Monitor/Speaker Stands - MOPAD | eBay

I'm not sure witch one is better or witch will work better, the two pieces one or the one pieces.

Btw: The mackies have like 16Kg

They are also more cheaper, but I'm not sure if the difference between the surface of contact has any impact in the function of the pads

Their basically the same thing. One just comes in 2 pieces and I think that better than the one piece one. The 2 piece ones are more versatile

There are some other pads that using a steel plate with the foam I forget the name but they aren't cheap!!They should be very easy to make a facsimile of.IMO the monitor stand has more to do with it than the pads though.

Well, I don't have stands, I mean, disconnected stands, my stands are attached to my desk and racks.

They're called the Primacoustic Recoil Stabalizers

Primacoustic RX5 HF Recoil Stabilizer Pad (Flat) | eBay

US $89.99 Plus $65.35 for shipping to my country.

The price is ok, but the shipping is too expensive!

I think that with some ruber and the MoPad I can do the Primacoustic Recoil Stabalizers versión

I have those monitors, and the Mopads work fine for me. I don't really care so much about the decoupling though they probably do help. It's that these monitors don't have a grippy bottom surface. They are piano finish all around. YOu don't want that sitting on a hard surface. A) it'll move around over time probably and B) it'll scratch the finish.

So I use the Mopads to avoid those problems, and also to tilt them downwards since they are fairly large and when added to the height of the top tier of my desk the tweeters would be firing over my head if they weren't tilted.

Good point about the piano finish.

But the Recoils (or the DIY recoils) ones other ones have a rubbish surface, isn't hard mmm
