Where (beyond cardomain) can I buy enclosure terminals?

My newest sealed box is finished, but to get it all working properly I need to attach terminals to it. The problem is, Im running 10 guage to the subs. Where can I find terminals that can handle wire that beig without spending as much on terminals as I did making the box? Thanks.

Drill two holes in the in the back of the enclosure. Buy bolts long enough to go through these holes. Put ring terminals on your 10ga going to the sub, then put that ring terminal on this bolt, then a washer. Stick it through the hole, put a washer on the outside, then the ring terminal, then the nut. Wallah.

Or go to radio shack or parts express.

but u could also just drill a hole in the back of ur box run the wire threw the hole and then seal that up with hot glue or liguid nails.

radio shack?

other local electronics store.

i see most people just drill a small hole in their box and run it thru the box, then seel up the box tight with glue or caulking around the wire.

One more question:

Is there anything special about these, or can I just strip the wires and attach them?

and bananas could pop out, you want it to stay in the hole while things are moving around

Wow, new sig right there.

I went ahead and bought the terminals. I said I did and somewhere in the internet my post was lost. Oh well.

I did the bolt trick on the sealed boxes for 10s I made a while back. Its just as much effort to do as a terminal is! Especially if youre going for a seal without caulk and no terminals. =p

I hate bananaplugs. Mine is in my glovebox now. :)

Does anybody make a T / Y type splitter for wiring in parallel?

Somebody should, it's a pain in the *** to squeeze two 8ga in a terminal.

You could use two terminals per side, one per VC. Itd make rewiring DVC subs a snap.
