    Re: Isoacoustics Gaia Speaker Isolation

    I'm using Stillpoints Ultra 5's on my speakers and they changed the presentation of sound, which required alterations to the setup of my speakers. But, it was a definite improvement. I definitely wouldn't say the sound got more lush. The sound spread out and got thinner in my system. But adjusting the speakers for this wound up being an improvement in focus and tone. I had upgraded from Stillpoints Ultra SS.
    My floor is hardwood and not particularly sturdy or even. I'm not sure that Stillpoints are the best choice for my floor, but I did get an noticeable improvement from them.

    I have threaded inserts for my speakers on the way to audition the Gaia I footers on my speakers to see what they bring to the table (or the floor).
    I'll let post my comparisons versus the Stillpoints Ultra 5 after the inserts arrive and I spend some time listening and adjusting my speakers if needed.

    At the time I tried the Stillpoints I had some Legacy Focus SE speakers. Tried them on both concrete and carpet. As I recall, the sound seemed to lack some dimensionality on both surfaces.

    Hi I am thinking of buying a set of the Gaia 1 for my 4365. May I ask what is the thread size of your 4367 ? I am not sure if the thread size of the 4365 and 4367 is similar, I believe the Gaia 1 comes with 3 different sizes of screws? which one did you use on your JBL?

    Thanks

    I'm sorry, I honestly don't know for certain the exact thread size...only that one the sizes of adapters in the kit was the exact size for the 4367s. (For some reason I 'm thinking M12, but this could be wrong.)

    You would probably need to check with JBL to find out the exact thread size for your 4365s.

    Thanks, I think you could be right on the M12 thread size.

    JBL informed me the thread size is 1/4'' - 20, but I found them to be small. Even the M8 is too small for the 4365. I believe, 4365 and 4367 shares the same footer size, i.e. M12. Can you look into your unused threads that came with the Gaia 1 package? if only the "smaller" thread screws remains, that M12 is the one underneath your 4367 now

    I am using the largest of the supplied three sets of adapters. According to the Gaia product infomation sheet this would in fact be the M12 thread size.
