Improve the performance of your speakers with 3D printed Sugru feet

Audiophiles, here is a little known fact about Sugru Mouldable Glue: moulding this wonder material into cones for your speakers will isolate sound vibrations, meaning you get nicer tunes and fewer complaints from the neighbours. Not just technically impressive, they look pretty darn good too.

You can easily mould these clever little cones by hand, but for the perfectionists among us, we’ve designed a 3D printed mould so you can produce precision cones yourself.

Soapy water applied to inside of mould

Step 1 — Coat the mould

Paint a light coat of soapy water (that’s just a drop of dish soap in water) onto the inside of the mould and shake off the excess.

Press the Sugru slowly and firmly onto your speaker and twist gently from side to side.

Excess Sugru removed

Step 4 - Remove excess Sugru

Sugru will extrude through the hole in the top of the mould and out the sides. Remove this excess Sugru.
