Except in this case.
I decided to hang it from the ceiling using the worn out front axle from my mountain bike. The magnet peeled off of the speaker easily enough with just a putty knife. And that's when things got pear shaped. I attempted to epoxy a washer with a hole big enough for the axle but smaller than the axle cup to the back of the magnet, which sounds easy enough. Then physics got involved. I thought since I just needed a little epoxy I'd mix it in something small. Like a beer cap. And what are beer caps made of? Wanna guess what happens when you place a steel beer cap full of epoxy a couple inches from a 6" magnet? Yup. Butter side down, if you will.
I briefly panicked because my epoxy had just been spilled by what looked remarkably like witchcraft. I attempted to peel the beer cap off the magnet (which was as difficult as pulling a steel beer cap full of epoxy off of a powerful magnet) and in my moment of panic, foolishly placed it in the exact same spot, just a few inches away. Rinse aaaaaand repeat. Now, have you ever tried putting a metal washer on the center of a magnet? I don't know what kinda mumbo jumbo physics are involved, but something ain't right about it. It will not go where you want it to and it's covered in epoxy. As are both my hands, the magnet, and the work bench. The washer kept flipping over every time I tried to take my hand off of it. It slid left, right, north, south, everywhere but the center. Imagine trying to put a cat covered in corn syrup into a bucket full of water and you'll get the picture. And since no decent clamp is made of plastic... Just try putting a steel clamp on a large magnet with only one hand while holding an epoxy covered washer in the center of said large magnet with the other hand which now has large chunks of paper towel adhered to it. Of course, the magnet was scooted around enough that it was mere inches from the frickin' beer cap full of epoxy, again.
Eventually, I wove the correct combination of curse words to summon a warlock, or align the planets, or funnel the power of a child's love, and I got that S.O.B. in place. I was fortunately wise enough to put a piece of wax paper between the washer and the clamp, and just sanded that off with a piece of emery cloth.
