Rubber stoppers for fxi5.

Hi
I picked up a set of used fxi5. They didn't come with those rubber stoppers / pads that go on the back of the speaker when you wall mount. Does anyone know where to get these? Emailed customer support a few weeks ago now and no answer yet, just a ticket number.
Thanks

    The hardware stores sell all kinds of bumpers as do numerous online sources.

    Look for adhesive rubber, poly, silicone discs. Check for thickness to keep them from being too thick or thin once attached to the wall mounting.

    Furniture stoppers/discs can also be used and cut to size.

    Thanks. Anyone know which depth the spacer needs to be?

    Why don't you measure the rubber bumper on those nice lsifx I sent you? I believe it is similar design.

    Here is a picture of the fx500 vs the lsifx. The lsifx has a deeper stopper. hgyr4wbxx1x5.jpg
    The stoppers are pretty well as deep as the power port/mounting bracket

    Rubber, polyurethane, silicone etc. will all have an effect on vibration and coupling with the attached wall...you should know better...and you call yourself an audiophile and mechanic! :smiley:
