    The main thing is you don't want your speaker bouncing around, and ideally it would be held snugly and as far from the pommel cap as much as you can manage in this setup. The speaker will generally...

    it is easy to test if you just connect a battery and LED. If you click it and the LED stays on, then it's latching. Ideally you could check it with a multimeter instead, if you have one.
