Additional Information

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.

NOT suitable for Aurora 6 Speaker stands.


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 adding Atabites, you will reduce stand ringing and give a tune-able platform from which to set up you bookshelf speakers.


The amount of filler to use will depend on the speakers, cables, speaker positioning, hifi component match, room acoustics and what sonic characteristics the listener is looking for. 


The more Atabites used, the more depth of bass, detail and defined sound stage should be heard. 


However, overfilling can dull the stands causing detail and mid-range to soften, so experiment with the amount used to match the speaker stands to your specific requirements. 


As a rule, half to two thirds full gives the best results.


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