new SMD Heavy Duty Speaker Box Terminals! 3/4" PVC NO Breaks, NO LEAKS! Stainless or Grade 8 PICS New SINGLE Cups (video page 5)


Recommended Posts


Here is a little something i have been working on for about a week. Planned on it for a week before that and finally put it into motion yesterday. After looking at the wimpy terminal i was about to use for my new Rockford Fosgate 19" subwoofer enclosure, i knew i had to ATTEMPT to make my own. As far as i know, i am the first person to use nuts and bolts for terminals back in the day so this is just natural for me to make a product like this. If i am not the first, i at least have never seen anyone besides me do it (back then). I am probably the first to post pics online of them being used. Either way, i KNOW these work GREAT! I have never had a problem with them. Nor is there any resistance that i can measure using these (see very bottom pics).


Anyway, I have 2 and 4 channel ready now. I am going to make a version with just one terminal (a little cheaper) and also one that has a FAT DADDY 8 channel setup on it. I also plan on modding the 4 channel and putting 5,6,7,8 on it for those that need to put them in different configurations but still want the number. Believe me, when you have 4 18' subs, that is 8 coils and sometimes, you just want an easy hook up and a way to keep track of what is what. Also, if you get creative, you can do quick impedance changes with these for dropping down to ultra low ohm'age on competition day...and then raise it back up for daily. A great way to hook up 8ga and higher speaker wire when a standard cup terminal just won't cut it!


No leaks too! I can't see how they even could. I plan on supplying a nice rope of Second Skin butyl tape with each one to help you seal it up.




Also: FYI: the first few pics are me making my proto's and i didn't have enough Stainless hardware to complete the job. There is some standard washers in the mix. Since then i dropped a ton of $ and got TONS of Stainless nuts, bolts, lock washers etc and they are all proper now (see pics of the 4 channel). Also, the ring terminals are platinum colored now, not gold. They look better that way (also, see bottom pics for those).

3 Tools and 3 Tool changes (on a CNC that doesn't do it automatically), and TONS of design work to get the paths correct with a double sided mill to get the flange to be proper....it is more work than it looks! :D

NOTE: the 2 channel version will have a beveled front recess lip like the 4 channel now does (see pics). I added that later (an entire new tool change and more work but it looks better i think)
