Hey Guys,

I'm trying to find some self adhesive rubber padding that arefairly thick that I can stick on the bottom of my speakers but won't damage the finish and leave a lot of gooey residue when removed, Any suggestions? Trying to cut down on the vibrations.the speakers are causing.

Cut some of this to size, a bit smaller than the speaker so that it won't be obvious:

It's not adhesive, but it doesn't need to be.

There is a product that is PERFECT for that.

It is sold at RV stores such as Camping World to line the shelves in motor homes and camping trailers to keep things from sliding around on the road.

It usually comes in a roll about 10 inches wide and is a sort of a waffle-pattern tacky rubber matting about 1/4 inch thick, which is only half that thick with weight on it.

You can easily cut it to fit with scissors.
