    Default Anyone ever use Blu Tack to hold a speaker in place?


    Seems to come well recommended.

    In the past, Ive used 3M velcro stuck to the two front feett on my ProCenter 2000, but that adhesive can mark furniture. The problem with these speakers is, they have an adjustable rubber foot in the center of the back side, and the two little feet on the front are very slick. With vibration this thing can rotate/slide on slick entertainment centers.



    Since Im wall mounting the tv, the center is coming out of it's hole to the top of the ent center, which should make it sound better for a couple of reasons. A couple of magazines have recommended this stuff and it appears to not mark up furniture like the velcro adhesive would. If i do not use something, Im pretty sure the ProCenter will not stay put.

    There are rubberized pads that can be had in home depot or lowes that can be cut to size they serve 2 purposes 1st they restrict movement and secondly they also dampen the mounts and eliminate vibrations or resonances.

    I've used blue tack (and other variations...) before and they work fine.

    I use rubber tabs with an adhesive on the back. They came with my stands.

    Blu worked great. It comes right off the furniture when needed, but sticks well.
