Hi 503,
Should work OK. Materials like foam, cork, polystyrene, slips of wood, pretty much any material that you can trim easily and accurately.

Thx

Anything compliant woll give you some sqish room when it comes to fitting. It will act as a low pass filter to the brce, where depending on how squishy it is. This is not much of a hardship as the inherent energy goes down as the frequency goes up (proportional to the square of the frequency). And some energy re-distribution is better than none.

It is possible to use something squishy that will still overload the basket (put stress on it), if its maximum compression exceeds the gap to the driver brace so you still need to be careful.

IOW - for some applications there is such a thing as too tight, and you'll know when it is
