Default Neopro5i - opinions on how to connect to internally

Hi

I posted this question a while back but didn't get much response. I did get one but I guess I am looking for more opinions just as backup.

I am building an line array with Fountek Neopro5i's - 18 of them.

I think they are a little unusual in that they have a binding post connection not a solder tab.

How would I connect to these to minimize a loose connection on the inside of a sealed box?

I imagine I can't solder directly to the binding post as that is way too much metal to get hot enough to make a good joint.

Is just tinning the wire and then balling it a bit and then cranking down on the binding post really fool-proof enough?

I suppose I have never actually had a bare wire connection come loose through vibration but I want to make sure.

Thanks

The friction created when tightening down the nut onto the wire will prevent it from backing up. If you're worried, tin the end of the wire before attaching.

Shouldn't be a problem.
