Question Capacitor vibration ?

I haven't glued down my capacitors in the crossover of my bookshelves to the board,and wonder what if any effect will this have on the sound ? If so,why and how ?

Do i really have to glue them ?

Hi,

The short answer is no. The longer answer is related to vibration
control, if the board is vibrating glueing them is not a good idea.

I'd be securing them some how, be it glue, cable ties, whatever.
Not for any audible effects, more for mechanical reliability.
IF they are vibrating then fracturing of the leads *might* be an issue at some stage.
