    Worth at least considering if these old foams from the 70's are the type that kill you in a house fire...that said in the event my Tannoys would be the first thing I'd save from the inferno ;-)

    Do staple the Silent Coat. Whilst the glue will work fine, over the years it may degrade resulting in the Silent Coat shifting.

    That’s probably a good height to aim for. Getting them off the ground certainly helps with bass quality too.
