Hi Salas, I did a pilot hole and so on for a tight fit, my concern is that the nut and washer will lose its grip over time and it will only be possible to tighten it if you remove the woofer. Maybe some loctite or even glue is good? How do you diyaudio members do this?

Yep, some form of glue aid to hold them better.

Hi henry, yes removable ones seem practical, I choose single terminals for less cabinet work, but I am not sure it was the case really, lol.
"Loctite" it will be then Salas, it is not fun having to remove the woofer just for tightening a loose nut.

Not the best pictures for seeing it but you see something at least. With some loctite I think it will stay in place. The washer is plastic, a metal tag washer could have been better.

Default locknuts

starre
put a second nut onto your post holding thread for peace of mind

do this
tighten the primary nut on to your cabinet
snugg it down but dont over tighten it
then fit a second nut to each post and then snugg them down onto the first nut

this is another form of nut and thread locking
the bonus is that if in the future you need to do upgrades or maintenance it is a simple matter of undoing each nut

tring to get loctite to release its bond can be a serious pain in the butt!

please post some snaps of your work so far

Thanks speedie, but I have already soldered the wires so I can´t fit a second nut.
Yes, the problem with loctite is to get it off if I want to, so if using it maybe you should just use a little to be sure it is possible to remove if wanted.
I will post pictures when the cabinet is ready for drivers, should be in a few days .
