need help with carpentry work....

Recommended Posts

juz got my new drivers, but cannot mount onto the speaker cabinet yet as the holes on the drivers are too small.

 

was advised not to expand the holes as i don't have anything proper to clamp the driver in place. besides, the stray metal bits may be attracted to the core...then gone case liao.

 

the other alternative is to use small screws. that'd mean filling up the existing holes.

 

honestly, i'm not too confident with doing this on a speaker cabinet as my amateurish effort will result in the screws loosening in no time :(

 

Any suggestion/advice?

Does this mean that the holes on the drivers are smaller than that in the mounting holes of the speaker cabinet?

 

You can always buy a reamer (available at SLT or hardware shops) to make the hole bigger. To prevent the metal fragments from affecting the driver, just wrap it up nice and tight in newspaper/glad wrap/cellophane and keep this protective layer in place using masking tape while making the holes bigger.

 

Else, see whether Martin Electronics is willing to help you to widen the holes.

 

Hope this helps.

hi joamonte...

if u come to my place to see my speakers, u'd know why I dare not do the drilling.

 

anyway, i've decided to just widen the holes on the drivers. will drop by at the hardware shop later to ask for tips.
