Small Insulation Paper Backing Rips


Removed some wall speakers and some of the insulation backing behind the speakers was ripped. Should I use tyvek tape on the paper backing, another type of tape or let it be? Total insulation paper riipping is less than 2' in two areas.

Not a big deal, if it makes you feel better put some tape on it.
? How did the speakers get in contact with the insulation in the first place.
There is drywall over the insulation, right?
Big fire hazard to leave it uncovered.
