1.25" Dia Sorbothane Hemisphere Rubber Bumper Non-Skid Feet with Adhesive

Product Review (submitted on December 5, 2017):
I purchased these for home theater speaker decoupling, and the improvement was immediately obvious. There was a lot of low end resonance (mud) being created in the shelving. I tossed in a CD and started up one of my favorite songs. Once these were applied (easy install that took seconds), the low end mud was gone, and the guitars and vocals became clear, and I was a happy camper. Since the resonance was gone, the stereo image was much more accurate as well (apparently the resonance was going into the floor as well). Watching TV is more pleasant now as there's no mess, conversations are clear and my wife is no longer asking "what did he say??". Your mileage may vary on your setup and environment. Mine, obviously, was in need of help and these did the trick.

The speakers are large bookshelf speakers, about 27 lbs each sitting on heavy wood shelving. From investigation, the weight of your speakers is critical to the selection of the Sorbothane product. These support 5 - 10 lbs per pad, average of 7.5 lbs per pad, 4x pads per speaker for a supported load of ~30 lbs (or a suggested range of 20 - 40 lbs), ideal for my speaker weight. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is that I don't know their longer-term effectiveness, but for the price, I can afford to buy these as needed compared to other isolation solutions!
