Thanks, I took care of all the ones in the living room yesterday. Still working on trying to keep the plastic lens from vibrating when the music is on. I taped them down but they still vibrate. I'm thinking I need to come up with some sort of rubber gasket to put between the plastic lens and the aluminum frame to keep them from rattling together.

Two sided tape.

Gatorgirl
I had local glass shop cut tempered acid etched glass to replace the cheap plastic lens.
Then as Randy suggested silicones them in.
Ordered 2 extra for breakage . 10 years no breakage
Just another method,worked for us.

NEVER!!!!! Looking to add a bigger amp and louder speakers on top of a satellite receiver. I can happily live without TV but I must have my music!

Remember those undesirable people you were worried about parking next to in an RV park?

You might just be one!

Very funny Randy.
I am considerate when I have neighbors, but on the open roadways.....that's another story! I can't drive without music, my mind gets too distracted.
No worries, I know my taste in music is not for everyone, I'm just happy my husband shares the same passion for music as me.

Use a dab...me?
...never. I ran a good bead all the way around then pushed the lens into it and finished it with another bead along the edge of the lens...don't want that thing to rattle in the least bit. Thanks for the tip.
