    What are your thoughts on BLU-TACK?

    I use these under my speakers. Not very attractive but they work fine and you can't beat the price:

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'll take a look at those later today. In the meantime I wrapped the Sorbothane in kitchen plastic wrap to protect the finish.

    I have my Gloss Espresso Sierras on blu-tack. I haven't noticed any problems

    Can you try moving the surrounds a foot or more away from the couch? Anyone sitting near the edge will get blasted with just one speaker. Sitting in the middle would be great though.

    In my experience, Sorbothane pads have been hit or miss. I have seen some that do not have an oily residue and don't outgas, leaving wood finishes unharmed -- while I have also seen Sorbothane pads that are very oily and have done some serious damage to speaker cabinets.

    I haven't used blu-tack all that often, but have never had an issue with museum wax or "quake hold" - which I believe is basically the same thing as blu-tack, just costs less. That said, I know we have customers using blu-tack and I can't recall anyone reporting any problems.

    I have used Quake Hold and it is excellent. It adheres well, easy to remove and also leaves no trace when removed. The only caveat is to make sure and follow the directions - do NOT use more than the small amount they tell you to use. Otherwise, watch the I Love Lucy episode about "Bulldog Cement Remover" to see what problem you may encounter, which I did from first hand experience. After that I followed the directions, never had a problem.

    I just learned this the ward way, it's amazing how much damage it causes.

    Many years ago, I also learned the hard way about Sorbothane.
