What is the best way to run the speaker wires through a sealed sub box? I am trying to keep the tight seal. Thanks!

drill a hole that's just big enough for the wire, shove the wire thru and caulk around it. terminal cups are also a nice cosmetic touch and allow for ease of wiring. you can get them from your local audio store for less than $5, and they only require a holesaw, a drill and 4 screws to mount.

What do you think is the best way? Straight wire, or the terminal cups?

terminal cups vs drilling a hole, and running naked wires out to amp? i'd take terminal cups anyday. i personally use bi-pin connectors.

that's why they invented caulk and foam rubber gaskets......
