I borrowed this idea from the science of biogeometry (the study of how forms and shapes can have an effect on living things), following a tip by A. Martherus, a fellow open-minded and forward-thinking Beltist. Although the creator of this shape, Dr. I. Karim, did not intend for its use in audio, I believe it works on what is recognized as Beltian principles. That is to say, while I have not confirmed its effect on medical health or crops (these shapes are said to have a positive effect on both), I have confirmed its effect on audio. Or more specifically, our perception of reproduced music. In fact, I designed this shape simply as a free and viable means of demonstrating the Belt phenomenon to the uninitiated. If you do perceive any change in the sound, remember that whether that change is deemed beneficial or not, it is an observation of the phenomenon.

How to Print Out
You have a JPEG of 4 shapes. Print them out large as you can on a sheet of paper (my original figures were shapes of approx 10.5cm from top to bottom, with the longest leg approx. 8cm, and the width of the shape about 1.5cm). The smaller they are the less perceptible they are. You can also make them larger if you wish.
Once printed, cut the shapes from the paper in rectangles (you do not need to follow the shape itself). If you printed 4 at a time, you’ll have 4 rectangles. That’s a good start, but for some people, even 4 is not enough to positively hear an effect. For this reason, I recommend printing out at least a dozen L-shapes.
How To Apply
This part’s easy. You simply need to tape a piece of paper with an L-shape printout on it to an object with a minimum (small piece) of scotch tape. You don’t have to see the shape with your eyes for it to have an effect, and in fact, it is better (soundwise) that printed side be facing toward the object (ie. speakers) it is attached to.
Where To Apply
You can start with the audio system, but really, it could have a beneficial effect placed on almost anything. Where on the object it is placed is more important, in terms of sound quality. Best places to start is near the input & output of equipment; ie. the input jacks on the back of cd player, amp, etc., or near the power cord, or speaker terminals or the center of the speaker panels. Next you can try the center of shelves or wall units, on or inside equipment too (ie. on top of or under equipment covers), etc.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, a group of elite Jedi fighters were training to use a mysterious “force”, to aid them in their quest for security and a better life…..
…On this planet, not so many years ago (roughly 10), I embarked on a series of audio experiments that involved aligning slotted screws on light switch plates (link), so that they were 180 degrees vertical. This was, naturally, an idea from Peter Belt, of P.W.B. Electronics. One which I sought to validate or invalidat
I’m starting to change my way of thinking about the so-called “Belt phenomenon”. Starting to realize that, there is no “Belt phenomenon” as such. And its wrong for me to think about it in those terms. Yes, there’s a “Belt phenomenon”, in that Peter Belt discovered this hitherto unknown(?) scientific(full article)
