    I am making a new baffle to convert a 1x12 into a 2x10 cabinet. These speakers require a longer screw than my vintage vibrolux has. I mounted them in it briefly, and the screws had barely enough to them to put the nut on. Any recommendations?

    I use 10-32 socket head cap screws, if rear mounting, measure the thickness of the baffle and add it to the thickness of the flange.

    I must not be understanding this. If you are making a new baffle, can't you just use longer screws?

    I would just put thread inserts or T-nuts into the baffle, though, if I started from scratch.

    I guess my lack of technical expertise is exposed! I was thinking the same, a longer screw like what is on my BF Fenders, but then I saw what is called a T nut, that is sunk into the baffle, may be a good idea...I would rear mount the speaker, so the nut would counter sink from the front?

    Yes.


    You don't have to countersink the T-nuts, just tap them in. they have 3 spikes that will hold them in.
