I was looking for something to put between the coils and the phenolic board to possibly reduce vibrations to excite the board/coil if they are stuck together rigidly. Maybe this applies to capacitors as well. As they are known to be able to sing too .
After looking up the specs for double sided tape, even a high temperature variant, I did not find anything useful. A max temperature resistance of 150 degree (short term) was the best i could find.
Then it struck me that wool is known to be a good fire retardant. So should I stick a small patch under the coils/capacitors (not resistors) to have them avoid to resonate the boards? Still locking them down with zip ties.

For instance, Von Schweikert has it's entire crossover potted:

... to avoid vibrations.

Maybe just stick with a double sided tape: Sonic Barrier Damping Material For SDA SRS 1.2TL Crossover — Polk Audio

There is always someone who has tried it, it seems...

Ordered a heat proof double sided tape. As the components do not see much load it should be fine.
(not doing the resistors like that, just the coils and capacitors)
I was planning to mount the boards way in the back with some sort of damping beneath them anyway.
