Any Tips for Installing a New Speaker?

Well, I got the new Emmy Redcoat Ramrod installed in my Fender Pro Junior (I LOVE it. Excellent bass response. Very smooth, smoky vibe going on. Very big sound. It's perfect for me.).

When I removed the back cover, chassis and speaker ALL of the screws (cover, chassis and speaker) were loosely fastened, with the screw heads just touching the mounting surface.

Anyway, how tight do you make the screws, especially the ones that hold the speaker?

Thanks for any help.

You don't want to tighten the speaker screws too tight, or you could warp the speaker frame and damage it. Snug, as heehaw suggests, is where they should be. You can be a little more liberal with the chassis and cover screws. Just make sure they are good and tight without stripping the threads.

Everyone:

So glad I asked. Only wish it was BEFORE I tried this myself! Anyway, I couldn't go to bed last night, knowing that it wasn't right; so I went downstairs, took it all apart, and re-installed everything, tightening all the screws according to TGP specs!

Thanks so much for your quick help. You guys are the best...

Tighten the screws 1/2 to 3/4 turn after the screw head meets the back of the speaker frame. This will slightly compress the gasket without warping the frame and provide a tight seal, assuming your baffle board isn't warped.

When desoldering or soldering, place some paper beneath the tabs and between the tabs and frame to keep solder from dripping onto the back of the cone. Ignore if you have slip-on connections.
