In order to get the best possible sound from your speaker stands, it is recommended that the main columns are partially filled with a high density inert filler . Atabites has an approximate density of 2403 KG/m sq. compared to dry sand which has a typical rating of just 1442 KG/m sq.
By using Atabites you will reduce ringing and give a sonically dead platform from which to position bookshelf style speakers.
Featuring new zinc coated micro-discs, the Atabite SMD-Z 7HD inert filler has a uniformed particulate size giving consistent sonic performance. The Zinc coating adds mass, protects the filler from both oxidisation and degradation while enhancing the visual aesthetics.
PLEASE NOTE- Atabites are supplied by weight, not volume. (7 KG tubs). Some settling of contents may occur in transit.
Here is the maximum Approximate weight of Atabites that can be used for each pair of speaker stands:-
Moseco 6 Duo 6=10.4KG Moseco 7 Duo 7=12.2Kg Moseco 10=21KG,Duo 10=N/A
Nexus 6i=8.2KG Nexus7i=12.2KG Nexus10i=21KG

HMS1.1 & Moseco XL 500mm=34KG HMS1.1 & Moseco XL 600mm=41.8KG HMS1.1 700mm=55.4KG HMS2.1=84KG.
SLX series, refer to product page.
Sonic results will depend on speaker stand positioning, type of speaker, room size, type of electronics and cabling, listening position and personal taste. However, as a general rule filling the stands approximately half to two thirds full generally gives the best results.
