    Default speaker stand material

    Hi,

    do you have any suggestions for some material that is good at gripping to put between the speaker stand and speaker?

    it's for temporary setup, so I don't want to use Blu Tac.

    thanks

    You could use the rubber-grid stuff they sell to line kitchen/bath drawers.

    It's cheap, you can cut it easily to fit the size of the speaker + stand, and it has decent grip while keeping it temporary. The pics even show it being used to keep a cell phone on the dash of a car.

    I've never used Blu Tac, but I always thought that stuff was designed to be easily removable?

    Go to Wal-Mart. In the paper, notebooks....school supplies area. Look for packs of thin dark brown cork. Cut to fit the top of your stand, secure with a few drops of hot glue.

    both are great ideas. they are low cost items and both worth a try. I will pick some up! maybe sandwich the 2 for some decoupling?

    too bad there is no standard for monitor speaker mounting threads and speaker stands, there should be like VESA tv mounts.

    I use the cork "dots" on my stands---works well (grips) and doesn't mess with the finish on my speakers. They're adhesive backed and come in a number of diameters.

    + 2 om the soft rubber tool drawer liner. I went a step futher and have used 3m auto rubberized window/ weather stripping adheasive to mount the Craftsmen drawer liner to all of my stands. The spkr will not slide at all and is completely decoupled from the stand. I have no intention of removal so I used the strongest bond I could find.

    that grid stuff is great but I used it on a pair of homebuilt moniter 5's it ended up etching the finish badely I would have to refish them, next time I will try the cork ..

    I use a Loctite Fun-Tak. It is remarkable similar to a product the OP doesn't want to use and can be found at Wal-mart for about $2.
