    HAYWARD, CA (USA) – October 29, 2018 Magico, LLC the Leader in High Performance

    Loudspeaker Design and Manufacture, is pleased to announce a newly developed spiked footer solution for the A3 loudspeaker named the APOD8.

    The APOD is based on the scientific design principles of Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) and provides an effective way to couple the A3 or S1 MkII loudspeaker to the floor while dissipating unwanted mechanical energy away from the enclosure. Demonstrable results include increased dynamics, enhanced focus, greater resolution, and a closer representation of the original musical performance as it was intended during the recording process.

    The main structure of the APOD is formed from multiple machined aluminum sections whichwhen assembled form a vertical stack. A solid pure copper substrate center round is sandwichedby a top and bottom layer of machined aluminum that when compressed together facilitates theConstrained Layer Damping (CLD) function. An adjustable spiked footer threads into the APODbase and when locked into position provides solid coupling to the floor.

    Direct installation of the APOD is intended for the A3 and S1 MkII loudspeakers.
