200 Speaker Glue?
« on: February 21, 2020, 12:53:12 PM »
Hey guys... Anyone know what kind of glue they use on 200s to glue down the speaker to the metal amp rail?  I'm having to replace my speaker and I don't want to use something too strong that I won't be able to remove it later on if need be.  Thanks.

Two bolts hold the speaker to the rail. They used silicone to dampen vibration in between the speaker and the mounting plates. . Is this what you mean?

Yes.  Thanks.  I thought it was glue because I had to pry the speaker off the rail - it seemed glued on.  Do I need to use silicone when I install the new speaker do you think?

Ditto. Silicone can be used like a glue in many situations. It is used to glue down some kitchen countertops, but it is relatively easy to remove if needed.
