Product Highlights
  • Sound Source De-Coupler
  • Lightweight
  • Portable

The AmpDude from Auralex is a subwoofer or instrument amplifier/speaker riser that is very effective at reducing or eliminating resonance transfer through floors. The increased isolation results in a cleaning up of the tone put out by the source.

The platform is made of 1/2" MDF covered with black ozite and supported by two Platfoam runners, surrounding a Studiofoam center strip. The portable riser comes with convenient handle preinstalled.

Applications include live sound and residential theater subwoofers, under stage monitors, isolating DJ turntables, under guitar and bass amplifiers. Great for recording studios, residential theaters, houses of worship and club gigs.

Decouples sound source from the floor, resulting in greater audibility and clarity
Helps improve sound transmission loss
Tightens and increases sonic detail of the source
Lightweight with convenient handle preinstalled
Dimensions 15 x 15 x 2.5" (381 x 381 x 64 mm)

      Comments about Auralex AmpDude - Subwoofer Floatation Device (Single):

      The sound has definitely improved, which is its primary purpose. Auralex claimed this would isolate the bass and prevent it from reaching my mother in law next door, but she seems to complain more now then when I had my blue sky sub sitting on a blanket. LOLSince it did improve my bass response overall, it was worth it. The sub sits on spikes and this subdude. Very happy with it.

        Comments about Auralex AmpDude - Subwoofer Floatation Device (Single):

        I ordered this just wanting to see if it did what they said it would and it really does. I am running an SVS SB12-NSD subwoofer on a carpeted/padded floor and it tightened up the base plus the dishes in the next room stopped rattling. It made my system sound better and I think it is well worth the expense.

          Comments about Auralex AmpDude - Subwoofer Floatation Device (Single):

          This product is a carpet coated board (sounds like plywood when rapped hard) supported by two dense strips of foam, and several triangle cut strips. It supports my Genelec 7060B (57lbs) very nicely without bottoming out. Though you could probably make something almost as good for a bit cheaper, it probably wouldn't be worth the work unless you're on a tight budget. It decouples the sub-woofer from the floor as much is as possible. The only vague issue in this particular case is the pad (15"x15") is slightly smaller than the subwoofer (though not smaller than the base of it), so it just barely fits. That said, the carpeting provides enough friction it can't be knocked off the SubDude.
