my bro has some double sided tape/weatherstripping, holds crazy amount of pressure, its used for cars, since he works at an auto body shop, he fixes everything on his free time, its awsome having acess to any auto body crap that i want and some one who can fix my crap for free labor

At hardware stores they sell something called rope caulk which is the same thing as the speaker caulk PE sells.

is that double sided so its sticks on both sides? it doesn't look like it but you can never be too sure.
