Is There a Way to Lessen Vibration On Cables From Powered Speakers
@ghasley It’s a class a/b push pull amp. In about two years I will upgrade to their HD6 speaker system, so for now, getting inside the plate might be a step too far for me. I have thought about cutting some strips of Neoprene and placing them alon... 
why do so many discussions turn contentious?
It's much easier to insult than contribute. To contribute to a discussion takes work, time, effort to type it out.  Trolls only need one sentence, maybe even one word to derail the discussion. Trolls attack anything that someone cares about.  That...

FINAL UPDATE:I solved the problem.  Not mitigated, solved. The EVA foam only did a minimal job.  I found the solution in Neoprene rubber sheets. Just one thin sheet made a difference. Eventually, I used the entire roll and wrapped it around the ca...

@ghasley It isn't that I cannot unscrew, it's a temperature issue.  The amp gets hot and the putty melts very quickly.  My fear is, leaving the putty will melt and get onto the electronics and cause damage. I am researching heat resistant foam pad...

@three_easy_payments   " I don't care. Doesn't bother me in the least. "So that's why you continue comment on this thread, because you don't care?" And there is no rage here. "Ok, let's not call it "rage" and call it insults and belittling sa... 
The "Snake Oil" Trope
@three_easy_payments " Why do you even care if some people refer to them as "snake oil"? "Why do you care to comment about someone else’s purchase that wasn’t yours as "Snake Oil" in the first place? " Isn't it simply rewarding enough that you app...

@rufusluna " So you are claiming cognitive bias exists in the people who are not fooled by BS "Since their definition of "BS" is pure opinion and not based in any form of fact that they can prove...yes." instruments calibrated to measure signals ... 
Is There a Way to Lessen Vibration On Cables From Powered Speakers
@ghasley True, but it seems less risky to offload the vibrations from the cables than it is to dismantle a powered speaker.  The vibrations begin with the speaker drivers and how they interact with the cabinet and sockets. I suppose that is the tr...

@millercarbon Don't you mean, "I'll know it when I hear it." ;) 
Is There a Way to Lessen Vibration On Cables From Powered Speakers
@ghasley I would say mitigated. The vibrations are not 100% gone.  The deep bass vibrations are still felt all the way down the line, but the higher frequency vibrations are gone. Right now the technique I used is very ugly and looks down right ca...

@Millercarbon I would need to get more foam sheets. At present I have sandwiched about a foot, just before the cables go off the desk.@ghasley The sound got better. It seemed as though there was more "depth" to the sound added.  Like the sound was...

@georgehifi Since the site nor the mods have not defined what is and what isn't "Snake Oil," all topics are open for discussion.  Even fuse ones.

UPDATE:I found a successful solution!Remember those foam pads?  They came from some electrical component shipping packing.  They're like EVA craft foam sheets. Anyway, I discovered that if I sandwiched the cables between two sheets and used a rubb... 
Is There a Way to Lessen Vibration On Cables From Powered Speakers
@millercarbon Yup. I lucked out in that I had the financial option to explore my idea.  I used to be relegated to only being able to afford a $300 dollar cable, maximum.  Which did improve sound, but only by small steps, but a step none the less. ... 
Is There a Way to Lessen Vibration On Cables From Powered Speakers
@Millercarbon  Indeed.  I should move along..... ;)@ghasley Well, the interesting thing is, folks would say that my spending 10 times the value of the speaker system on cables and power distributors was ill-advisable, but these speakers wouldn't s...
