The difference isn't subtle.

When we moved into our new facility several years ago, our studio designer recommended these. But we were over budget, so we bought the MoPads and called it a day. Well, I just got around to getting a pair of Recoil Stabilizers, and I wish I hadn't waited so long. I expected the improvement would be subtle. I was wrong. The difference was immediate. Tighter bottom. Better overall definition. Bottom line? I'm a believer.

Hear your monitors

i hate that they cost so much... but after much research i realized that a diy project like this would only save me a few bucks... so i went ahead and decided to buy them. the first thing i noticed is that my ns10s (which arent known for good bass) sounded extremely full and alive... i've used a sub with my ns10s for years and when i put these under my ns 10s and then i engaged the sub i started to hear how un-defined and muddy the bass became. I spend about 2months going back and forth tuning my sub to suite my room and now i never use it. it sure is expensive but trust me this is night and day compared to mopads.

Based on reviews from professionals and semi professionals alike, I have long since been wanting to add these to my studio arsenal. After putting these to use in my studio, my decision to switch has proven more than sound, it has me wondering why I didn't switch sooner.I'm formerly a MoPad user (which are not at all a bad product, especially for their price range) - but I am completely blown away by this product. The Recoil Stabilizers have enabled me to mix much more easily and effectively than I have prior to utilizing them. Frequency response from my monitors is now exceptionally tight and defined across the spectrum, imaging is MICRO-pinpoint in accuracy, transients are as sharp (or as dull) as I want them to be - in short, I'm able to really hone in on my mixes without having to THINK about honing in, the truth of my mixes are just THERE, enabling me to make good decisions without occasionally having to guess. I'd recommend this product highly to any engineer, regardless of environment or experience. I also want to take a moment and thank my sales rep, Chris Lewis, for always providing the best level of customer service I have ever had from any gear retailer - he's truly amazing, transparent as can be and is the main reason why Sweetwater is my choice for studio gear. Thanks, Chris!!

Fantastic focal point enhancer

Was skeptical at first...always been satisfied with my mopads. Had a wonderful experience at Sweetwater's gearfest this past summer, and was sold the second i talked to the nice reps at Focal about the best monitor/low end isolator for my Focal CMS 65's. Was about to purchase the CMS sub and tried these as a last minute mix fix. Blown away by the stereo field enhancement and low end tightness. Knew I'd tell myself they sounded better than the cheap mopads, so i put my hand under my mix desk to feel for low end rumble...before (w/ mopads) and after (w/ recoil stabilizers) --and it was night and day. The metal plate absorbs all low end clutter and imaging benefits immensely! Highly recommended!

Unbelievable - 50% better monitoring instantly.

Despite hearing very credible people say these were great I put them off for a long time and was somewhat skeptical though open minded as to the glowing reviews of all these greats including Bruce Swedien! Now I'm thinking "why did I?!" These have instantly improved the sound of my monitoring by at least 50%, in some ways I feel 100%. Like a new set of monitors that perform hugely better than the "old" ones. You can use a lower volume as you can hear everything very clearly. If I listen at the old levels, my ears start to hurt after a while - I realized I needed to change my usual range of listening and turn it down because I can hear everything that much better, it's not muddy but crystal clear and right there. Who knew! Absolutely insane what a difference these make. An absolutely indispensable piece of gear. If you can't afford them in your budget, get cheaper speakers and get these instead - you'll have better monitoring in the end and that's what it's about. Monitoring for me is now 3 stage process 1. Professional monitors 2. Bass traps and acoustic treatment 3. Primacoustic recoil stabilizers Miss one and you are missing 30% of the mix as far as I'm concerned - these are literally THAT important - as in, bad monitors, no acoustic treatment, no stabilizers - either one or more and you're on crutches. There is no more struggling to hear the mix anymore, it's just THERE. It's like you are hearing the sound of the music / source and not the speakers. Incredible. Get these. Do it. A note to buyers, I was given some wrong advice about the size I would need, and told I should get a RX9 for my S3A's, but I emailed Primacoustic and they were very honest and told me actually a RX7 would do the job just fine, in both horizontal or vertical settings (at the moment my S3As are vertical). You do need a larger size if the weight demands it but as for surface area contact on the bottom of your speakers Primacoustic said this is not really a technical issue as they will still isolate (within reason of course) but people get the larger ones for aesthetic reasons (so the isolator is the same size as the speaker). But for the extra cost of the larger one (quite a lot) unless you've got money to burn or the aesthetic is that important to you, I got the RX7 and for my speakers they are great. To me what's most important is the functionality. So to be clear the main thing is the weight support and not so much the surface area, you can't get the smallest size for a huge heavy monitor - everything within reason - but by the same token you don't need to get the *same size* as your speaker base unless you want to. In my case this saved me a lot of money ($200 odd). In my case having my S3A's horizontally later will be fine on the same stabilizers as well, they will take the weight as they already do, they just won't be the same size as the speaker base - but for me that's fine - stands aren't like that either I don't see the point in spending so much more money (unless your monitors are that much bigger and heavier that they need that of course). If in doubt check with Primacoustic in my opinion. Incredible incredible difference not only in bass but across all frequencies - has even sorted out things I thought were lingering room treatment problems - but since I can listen at lower volume I'm not pushing the room, and for that reason alone everything is clearer. Hard to describe but all over you can hear everything much much better. The difference was startling and instantly noticeable. An Absolute must have essential for any studio large and small. Makes good speakers great, and great speakers do what they promised in the first place.

I have a set of these to go with my JBL LSR4328. It's incredible how much something like this can improve the sound quality of my speakers. These pads are not your typical foam pads. They're incredibly heavy and robust. If you have studio monitors and they're just sitting on stands or on a desk, you must consider buying these. It makes a world of a difference.
