Most manufactures use hot glues now as it's quicker during the assembly process. With that said not all hot glues are the same and depending on what your glueing it may not be the best choice.


The speakers are held in with a screw and a little contact adhesive to prevent it from resonating at the far end. I prefer to place a piece of thin felt drawer liner under it instead of gluing just at the far end.
