Angry ProAc 2.5 driver mounting holes

Hi,

I am building my 2.5 clones and I have just realized a "problem" with the driver mounting holes. According to the documentation 8535 has 3.5 mm and 2010 has 5 mm holes for the screws.

On my drivers these are "almost 4" mm and 4 mm respectively. Did you experience the same before? What do you think, can I drill the 8535 holes up to 4 mm?

Regards,

Saci

Why would you do that? Why not just use a screw that fits the hole?

Because there is no "almost 4mm" nor 3.5 mm metric screw, only 3 and 4 mm.

So then 3 mm would fit both.

It's very annoying that the quite expensive Scan-Speak drivers do not meet the specifications...
