- HiFi Trade?
Yes sorbothane. Sonic Design make some reasonably priced stuff. Just pick the size for your spkr weight. I use them & would recommend them.Just wondering how people mount there speakers on stands.
I use Blue Tack but is there a better way?
I can remember when audiophiles insisted on black tack 😆
I've never found a need to stick my speakers to the stands with anything tbh🤔I had never heard of black tack before, is it any different to blue tack, apart from the colour?
I use little felt sticky pads they work a treat from Amazon👍
Yeah they will just peel off again I also find it easier to tilt the speaker forward or backward just add one on to the rear or front ones & they just come off if not required👍Thanks for the tip. Are they easy to remove, for replacement or if no longer required?
I’d say, quantum technology used in the manufacturing process and reassuringly expensive.I had never heard of black tack before, is it any different to blue tack, apart from the colour?
That must be the quantum physics stuff I would expect nothing less from PMC👌🏻Audiophile grade BluTack came with my PMCs.
I think an oil leaks from the blu tack and penetrates the veneer.With some veneers and/or vinyl cabinets, BluTack can stick too well and you end up pulling off the veneer. Or permanently staining it.
It’s very versatile though, as you can try different sized blobs - as mentioned above - and if you remove and re-seat the speakers once or twice a year then it shouldn’t stick fast.
Unless I was trying to avoid the cabinets toppling onto children, I’d choose alternative gels, pads or discs these days. Or designs than can be bolted together.
It’s a plasticiser.. they are added to many materials including paint .. They make materials flexibleI think an oil leaks from the blu tack and penetrates the veneer.
