Speaker vibration control device
I had a pair of Techsonics but couldn't tell a difference. I also had concerns that they kept falling off. Also I thought they should have been directly bolted on to the speakers. Take the magnetic panel off too for a secure bond.

The speaker stands I made were worthwhile. The bass tightened up and the midrange was less smeared.
