    Need help on fixing drilled hole in sealed box

    I drilled a hole in my sealed box to have series wiring but changed back to parallel wiring. Ill be getting my amp this week so i want to make sure my box is air tight and sealed in order to have the best sound. What are some good ways to seal the hole? I was told to use **** glue. I have JB weld at my house if that will work. Any opinions on what would be the best way?

    i run a bead of calking along the cracks as well just as a precaution, any window or bathroom sealant should work.

    Re: Need help on fixing drilled hole in sealed box

    How big is the hole ?12ga Wire size or so ? Take a wood golf tee , slap a little glue on the pointy end . Then put it in the hole , smack it a couple times to seat it good with hammer. Then when the glue dries , cut off the excess tee and sand smooth . Odds are though, if it's a small hole your not gonna notice a difference

    Re: Need help on fixing drilled hole in sealed box

    yes its very small hole, only enough to run 2 speaker wires that are prob like 12-16 gauge. what should i stick in there so it covers up the hole or should i just put enough glue there to cover the hole?
