Default Semi-permanent DML exciter adhesive

Hello! New DML / exciter experimenter here. Been lurking for a bit.

Anybody have experience with semi-permanent adhering of exciters to their panels (XPS, EPS, etc)? I would like to experiment with exciter locations before permanently adhering the exciter to the panel, and I want a more permanent (and accurate experiment) than sliding the panel around with my hand.

Any thoughts on type of adhesives that can be easily removed but will not dampen the force from the exciter? Hot glue? Contact cement?

Have not used these products but omega engineering makes a range of thermally conductive epoxies. Another would be aavid thermalloy.

I have no direct experience with those devices, but since the replies are light, here are some ideas:

3M Super 77 spray adhesive - it fails at a relatively low temperature, so you could put your panel in a low temperature oven to weaken the bond (or in your car on a hot day). Assuming the exciter can take it, twisting would also help break the bond once it's softened.

3M Command adhesive strips - you'd have more thickness in the bond with this route, but they are very easy to remove as long as you have access to the pull tab.

There are other removable and repositionable tapes on the market if you want something thinner or need to cover more area.
