In order to get the best possible sound from your speaker stands, it is recommended that the main vertical columns are partially filled with a high density inert filler .

By using Atabites you will reduce ringing and give a sonically dead platform from which to position bookshelf style speakers.

Featuring new zinc coated steel micro-discs, the Atabite SMD-Z 7HD inert filler has a uniformed range of particulate sizes ( 2-4mm diameter) giving consistent sonic performance. The Zinc coating adds mass, protects the filler from both oxidization and degradation while enhancing the visual aesthetics.

We are even known to paint them in Satin Black on one side if production time allows! (purely aesthetic, does not make any difference to the performance, will not be seen when the Atabites are installed into the speaker stands, but looks nice in the tub!).

PLEASE NOTE- Atabites are supplied by weight, not volume. (7 KG tubs). Some settling of contents may occur in transit.

As a guide, each 1.8L tub contains approximately 1,6L of Atabites. As a comparison, 1.6L of typical dry *beach sand would weigh less than 2.5KG.

Maximum approximate weight of Atabites that can be used for each pair of Atacama speaker stands:-

NeXXus 600 Esssnetial =16.8kg

Nexus 5, Moseco 5, =6.8KG,

Nexus 6, Moseco 6, Duo 6, =8.4KG

Nexus 7, Moseco 7, Duo 7, =9.84KG

Nexus10, Moseco 10, =14.14KG

Moseco CC series, as above with corresponding leg height.


Audition/ SLX300=16.36KG

Audition/ SLX400=22.10KG

Audition/ SLX500=27.84KG

Audition/ SLX600=36.6KG

Audition/ SLX700=39.34KG

SLX1000=56.56KG (SL series, as SLX)

HMS1.1 & Moseco XL 500mm=30.8KG

HMS1.1 & Moseco XL 600mm=44.53KG

HMS1.1 700mm=58.2KG 

HMS2.1 & HMS2X-600=85KG

Apollo Cyclone 5= 6.8KG

Apollo Cyclone 6= 8.4KG

Apollo Cyclone 7= 9.84KG

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.

NOT suitable for Aurora 6 Speaker stands.

Filler can be used with non-Atacama/Apollo speaker stands but check suitability first with the stand manufacturer.
