Each OREA model is designed with a different weight capacity. They each have a coloured ring on the bottom isolator that denotes the model and weight capacity. The OREA series are packaged individually to allow greater flexibility when determining the number of units to use. We recommend a minimum of 3 units under each component, depending on weight.
Three OREA models tuned and optimized for each weight range
The weight distribution of the component can also be taken into account. If for example the component is heaviest at the back, then it is common to use 3 isolators with 2 positioned at the back corners and 1 positioned front/center.
The weight limits are based on the performance curves which are illustrated in the chart below:

How do I choose which OREA model to use with my speaker or component?
We recommend choosing the OREA model base on the weight of the speaker or component that they will be supporting. It is common to use 3 or 4 OREA isolators for each component or speaker. The weight capacity per OREA isolator is as follows:
OREA Graphite – 4 pounds (1.8 KG) per isolator
OREA Bronze – 8 pounds (3.6 KG) per isolator
OREA Indigo – 16 pounds (7.2 KG) per isolator
OREA Bordeaux – 32 pounds (14.4 KG) per isolator
We recommend using the IsoAcoustics Online calculator for determining which model to use with your speaker or component.

Omtaler av Orea isolators
“Pound for pound, OREA is among the best value for money upgrades that can be made to any hifi system”
“There is no doubt in our mind that the IsoAcoustics OREA Bronze do what they promise.”
“With four Oreas under each Stellar M700, and each amp sitting on its own Poly-christal stand, the sound acquired another measure of clarity and transparency…”
