    Where do you run wires in your custom box?

    Hey I was wondering where everybody here that has made their own custom box where do you run your wires? I see some people run them through the port like myself but I wanted to know how else you run it (maybe i get some ideas).

    Either with a terminal cup.

    Or drill a hole, run the wire through it and seal it up real well with caulk.

    drilled a hole with a drillbit and caulked that mothersuckre real well. Thickkkkkkk thick thick caulk will do.

    no need to be wasting money on terminal cups. Too much work.

    Re: Where do you run wires in your custom box?

    i like using terminal cups because of the "plug and play" factor but when i dont have the time or money, i drill a hole.

    I was also thinking of taking the terminal cups that came with my eBay boxes and use them on my box. The hole to cut out for the terminal cups is pretty easy right?

    A mentally challenged monkey with ADHD could caulk up the hole good enough that it doesn't leak.
