Note....I do not want to use blu tak or anything to physically attach the speakers to the stands as I may move them around from time to time.
I used a simple, inexpensive monitor isolation pad from Amazon between my stands and BMRs: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I was concerned more about it possibly sliding, so I stuck a few of these type of pad on the stand top to prevent any sliding. The BMR does not slide on the foam pad. (I didn't buy that specific product though, just grabbed something from my local hardware store... same idea, though.)

Isolateit does make a sorbothane product that is coated and not supposed to interact with wood finish. I was going to try them for my Phil 3 Uppers, when I found out that Jim went ahead and included the regular sorbothane feet. I talked to a guy with Isoalteit and he said this option is less grippy because of the coating. If you want to make certain something is going to stay in place, you have to decide between the possible damage the plasticizer may do to any finished surface you put them on. I was told that the adhesive backing is easily removable with little to no concern of damage from the adhesive (again from Isolateit).


I'll try to get a photo up of the sorbothane "imprint" on the top of my lower cabinet. Its not bad, and as Dennis and Jim pointed out, you'll only ever see it if you separate the cabinets for moving them...

I'm using a similar set of pads to set speakers on a cabinet in on office. Maybe I'll give those a try. I had just thought they might add some instability between the speaker and stand and make it easier to tip them over. But since I already have a set, I will give those a try. Thank you for the idea!

I'm using 36" VTI stands. Unless you drunk tackle them... I think you are safe.

On a completely separate note from the previous post, I happened to look on craigslist the other day and see a used pair of AAMs. As much as I don't need anymore speakers, I just couldn't help myself. It was a reasonable deal, so now I have another set of speakers. I have been trying out different sets in my office. Originally I thought the BMRs were gonna be it, but they were just too good and are now in my main setup instead.

I've used these for years with excellent results with loudspeakers weighing 30-100 pounds, really keeps the speakers from moving or dancing on stands,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

I'm using the yoga blocks and have posted the links here before as a good way to get some foam without paying the high prices. They do decouple a bit, but I'm willing to try the sorbothane or silicone because I think they would do better.
