I was lookin at parts express, but I'm not sure which kind to get. Want it to be easy to work with...a link of what most use would be great

also lookin for some wire terminals....which ones do you like and seal well? prolly use 10-14 guage on the terminals

go simple....drill a hole in the box to run the wires through and then seal around them.

you also get one less connection point!

If you go with the parts express carpet, get the un-backed cabinet carpet. Very easy to work with.

^^^ x2 on the carpet.

For the terminals, i would get binding posts instead. imo they are much easier to ensure a good seal, and i like the look of them better neways.

These are the ones i use (i have a gold pair), they accept up to 8ga:
