Collection: Loudspeaker/Rack Isolation and Mobility

In addition to superb isolation, floor-standing loudspeakers need mobility for fine-tuning soundstage and imaging, to find the best interaction with room acoustics, and for aesthetic or social reasons. Conventional casters are terrible for audio applications, because various rollers and wheel housings introduce reverberations from floor and loudspeaker vibrations, adversely affecting the loudspeakers' performance.

Loudspeakers and equipment racks scarcely need to be rolled rolled around, not like a service cart at a hotel. They just need to be moved a little from time to time. Rather than rolling on wheels, an ability to slide across the floor is sufficient. Herbie's loudspeaker Gliders enable mobility on bare floors and carpeted floors while providing superb decoupling and sonic improvement. Besides general overall benefit throughout the sonic spectrum, deeply extending, linear bass with pronounced definition is the most consistently reported improvement achieved with Herbie's Gliders.

Positioning, like toeing the speakers in or out just a little, moving them closer to a corner or away from a wall, can have dramatic acoustical effect. Bass response, linearity and soundstage imaging are among the acoustic phenomenon addressed by speaker positioning. With any change in room decor or upgrade of components or accessories, some readjustment of loudspeaker positioning is often needed to maintain proper phase relations and keep everything synergized at an optimal level.


"[...] practically everyone always prefers the sound with their spiked speakers left sitting on Herbie’s gliders – not to mention the enhanced ease of movement. No going back to “spiked into the floor” for them."
-Jim Smith, Author of Get Better Sound
