rubber between brackets and speakers &/or wall?


Standard Member
Hi, just about to fit my Quad L-ite 2's to the wall with some metal brackets...
Just wondering, is it a good idea to fit some rubber pads or washers of some sort in between the wooden speaker and the metal bracket?
2 reasons I thought of this, 1 to keep the speakers from being marked, & 2 to try and absorb some vibration so the metal bracket doesn't mess with the sound. This may also help with vibration to next door?!
Anyone tried this? or is it not worth the bother?
Views appreciated...

I wouldn't worry about it - my thinking is that the manufacturers would include it if it's needed, it would only cost them pennies after all.

hey guys I'm about to do this right now without the rubber!

So many jokes, so little time... ;)

The only thing i would rubber mount is the sub. Low freqencies dont come from your main speakers...so i wouldnt worry...as you say they cost pennies, so no harm done even if you did.
