Maximize Your Studio Monitor Performance

Get the best sound out of your monitors that you can with Auralex ProPAD studio monitor isolation pads. Based off of the best-selling MoPADs, the ProPAD uses an MDF base covered with ISO-plate to isolate your speakers. Like the shock absorbers in your car, ProPADs sit under your monitors, absorbing vibrations that would otherwise transfer into your desk or your floor. You'll get cleaner, more accurate speaker playback that will make your mixing easier than ever. You've paid good money for your monitors, now get the most out of them by adding a set of Auralex ProPAD studio monitor isolation pads.

Auralex ProPAD Studio Monitor Isolation Pads at a Glance:
  • Super-accurate sound by decoupling your monitors
  • Fine-tune your studio with exact monitor positioning
Super-accurate sound by decoupling your monitors

When your studio monitors sit directly on a stand, desk, or floor, they transmit vibrations that cause the surface they are on to act like a lower-frequency speaker. Auralex ProPADs separate your speakers from their intended stands, stopping the transfer of vibrations. This is called decoupling; it helps you mix more accurately without false low frequencies. You'll be surprised by how much better your mixes with playback on other systems.

Fine-tune your studio with exact monitor positioning

Auralex ProPADs let you position your studio monitors at the exact angle you need, allowing you to create the perfect sweet spot for listening. Each ProPAD includes angled wedges, which allow you to tilt your monitor for your ideal setup. ProPADS make it easy to angle the monitors on your desk up or tilt your stand-mounted monitors down.

Auralex ProPAD Studio Monitor Isolation Pads Features:
  • Acoustic isolation for your studio monitors and more
  • Adjustable angles
  • Dimensions: 13" L x 8" W
  • Slip-resistant top
Make your studio sound better with Auralex ProPAD isolation pads!

What a difference

I knew there would be a difference, but never knew how much. My lows are way more present. Very clean sound your looking for.

Auralex does it again!

Great monitor pads! I like them better the the mopeds. Better construction, and very solid. A secure place for my monitors. Look great too! Going to buy my second set this week!

Love The ProPad

The auralex propad was a great buy for my studio. Mid range is more focus and on the top end I can make better decision on boosting or cuting the high frequency. The moniters that set on top of these pads are JBL LSR 5'' and now they translate even better. If you have moniters in this price range or any higher or lower price range they will sound that much better with the propad under them. The sound is a night and day difference.

great pads

Wish the dimensions were better considering even the XLs are just longer but not wider. Even though there is some overhang they get the job done and definitely improve sound quality.

PRETTY DARNED GOOD....BUT A LITTLE LESS THAN PERFECT

WELL, after years of "getting by" and learning how to compensate for what I thought were flaws in my studio monitors, I finally got around to decoupling my monitors from my desk.I have a pair of M-Audio BX8a monitors. While they may not be the best studio monitors out there, I've learned them and know how to get a decent mix from them. BUT....I also know that I've been working around some crazy bass and mud and I finally decided it was time to get some isolation. I was originally just going to get some MoPADs. Why not? They're a relatively cheap way to refresh what you're hearing in your mix position and give you a better sense of detail. But I, like many, succumb to marketing and purchased the ProPADS instead thinking "Hey! They're TWICE as expensive....they MUST be even better, right!?"I have to say that they did exactly what I was looking for....they gave me a better sense of detail in my mixes and (although I may be imagining it) even made my sweet spot sound a little wider. It even made my mixes sound as good as Tony Maserati's! (OK....just kidding about that last part!)There is ONE complaint, though. Unlike MoPADS, which come is SETS of two so that they can be spaced farther apart to accommodate larger monitors, the ProPADS are one size....which happens to be too small for my monitors! I was really surprised by this! I suppose it's no big deal, but the outer half inch or so of my monitors overhang the ProPADS on both sides. (BTW - My monitors are standing up straight.....not laying on their sides.....which would have been even worse!!)I didn't notice the size on the description, which is my own fault. I guess I should've read a little more closely and measured my monitors (which would have saved me $50). I guess I also should have borrowed some MoPADS from one of my friends to try out first because, to my ears, my mixes sound almost identical while my monitors are sitting on either sets of pads.Marketing is an evil monster sometimes and I was wooed by the beast!A pro mix engineer with GOLDEN ears the likes of Maserati, Lord-Alge, Swedien, Miller or Kramer may be able to hear a major difference between the two different types of isolation pads, but to my BRONZE ears, there's just no difference that warrants twice the price!I'm just sayin'.........

I listen to my music through a Dangerous Dbox for D/A and a Dangerous BaxEQ and then into Adam A7 monitors. Simply putting these under my monitors tightened up the bass response and made the high frequency response clearer.
