    How should I attach Paradigm Studio 20s and 40s to stands? Is double sided tape enough, or should I use screws? I'm a little afraid to drill into the speakers. I have the 20s now, and am looking at getting some 40s to use as the fronts. They seem to big to use just tape.

    Thanks

    Bob

    I read here that you can use a blue tac substance that they sell at home depot.

    Hello Bob:

    First of all, what kind of speaker stands are you currently using? Are those from Paradigm (Premier Speaker Stands J or S Series)? If you are, they do include isolation pads in their packaging, which are placed on the upper plates. The speakers will adhere to the stands, without the need for any screws or adhesive taping. Granted, if you do not try to knock the speakers over, obviously (no duh!).

    If the speaker stands are from a different company, you can purchase the "Blu-Tack's" that Thang had mentioned. You can purchase these from Audioadvisor.com. You should be able to find something similar at your hardware or convenience store. The Blu-Tacks usually go for about $10. Simply place one on each corner of the top plate of the speaker stands. Put your speakers on top. Most of the time, you don't have to screw the speakers onto the stands.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!

    Do NOT drill holes into the speaker. BlueTac works fine (sticky clay substance that doesn't mark surfaces). Don't get this at an audio place... Office Depot sells it for significantly less $$$.
