HELP: Speaker is sliding around on it's stand.

I just upgraded subs to the SVS Ultra and it's causing one of my front speakers to vibrate around on it's stand. Relocating my sub isn't much of an option so I'm looking for some way to adhere my speaker to it's stand without leaving any kind of residue on the bottom. Anyone had any luck using 2 sided sticky tape? Ideally I'd like to find some bumper or feet material that is sticky enough to keep it from sliding around but I have no idea what products would work.

Thanks in advance.

There is some non-skid material you can get like this :

You can get kitchen shelf liner Which is an open weave foam rubber-like material. It's inexpensive and would work great for this purpose.

Blutac is an old standby....olds posters on walls and speakers on stands.

Another possibility is clear Vinyl plastic sheeting which can be found at any Fabric store in various thicknesses. This in not thin poly drop cloth plastic, this is thicker.

https://www.fabric.com/buy/de-695/30-gauge-clear-vinyl

https://www.fabric.com/buy/ap-883/20-gauge-clear-vinyl

This is a bit like cling-film, only much thicker, and should do a good job of holding the speakers in place.

Do not use anti-slip matting it will react to the finish on your speaker and leave a mark. It's only the bottom so you may not be fussed.

It has reacted to my Celestion A1 wood veneer, it's gone all dull and there is a cross pattern mark. It won't polish out.
