Default Compression driver studs

I am looking for studs (screws) for mounting compression drivers like Altec 288C. There are three studs per driver.

Does anybody know where I can buy some? Online shop?

If not, does anybody know where I can buy online normal screws that fits? I believe they are 3/8"-24.

I would go to your local hardware store and ask them or failing that contact great plains audio. They are the Altec gurus.

Big ones for bass and littler ones for treble.

Just buy threaded rod of the correct pitch and cut it to size. Most of the mone improvement places have it.

The studs I've removed have a smaller thread into the driver than what protrudes. That was Altec small though....

I'll check my Altecs if I get a chance. I think they are just standard 1/4" 20 thread - right?

Cal, the real speaker stud, has a pair of 288s. He'd be the one to ask. Can you get inch stuff where you are?

Problem is that I can not find the screws where I am living. We are only metric. So any advice on an online shop the can deliver screws would be helpful.
