The HRS Helix is designed to significantly reduce the negative impact of air and structure-borne vibration on your audio or video component performance. The Helix is specifically designed for use with components that have stiffer (plate and billet) metal chassis construction and yields targeted performance improvements when used in conjunction with the HRS Isolation Bases.
The HRS Helix was designed specifically for use with HRS Isolation Bases. Using the HRS Helix in conjunction with another shelf that does not have the same capabilities as the HRS Isolation Bases can limit the performance benefits achieved by the Helix. The Helix can also be used in combination with HRS Damping Plates. While the Helix significantly reduces bottom chassis noise, the Damping Plates will work to reduce top chassis noise in the component.
The Helix is produced in a very low-profile design, completely invisible under most components, so it is ideal when you wish to maintain the original look of the component.
The HRS Helix is designed so that sets of three or four units arranged as shown in the diagrams below will provide exceptional performance on any standard-size component.
Small Components (less than 100 square inches): Three Helix are required to make the component stable. Do not use less than 3 fixed units.
Normal Components (approximately 150 square inches and larger): HRS strongly recommends using more than three units to obtain maximum performance.
Larger Components (approximately 300 square inches and larger): HRS recommends using up to five or more Helix on larger components.
