Default i dont understand "risers" . . .

why do people build "risers" for their speakers, especially noticed on subwoofers?? Am i missing something? I have noticed they tend to look cosmetically horrible.

Mine is going to look very nice when I find a router to finish it the way I want. I'm going to route tracks into the legs so that I can slide some lightly stained pine sheets in between the legs to hide the acoustic foam that I will put underneath. The purpose of the riser is to improve the sound coming from the sub.

See this thread for more info.

To increase performance from your sub, whether it be minimal or measureable. It's a simple thing to do in order to get increase ouput.....and who wouldn't want that?!

I was skeptical at first, but I used some side tables with mats to see if it did make it sound better. I found when I raised it to the tweeter level, the bass was cleaner and harder to pinpoint the direction or location of sub.
