    or just drill a hole in the box, stick the wires through, and seal it with silicone

    Re: Wiring Though The Box

    Just drill a hole in the back of the box, run the wire through, and seal around the wire.
    That's a quick, cheap way.
    Or, the best way is to just buy a terminal cup.

    Re: Wiring Though The Box

    I actually like doing the bolts through the box. I had to terminal cup at the time and was like ok just tap and shove them through. Worked good and saved money on buying a cup not that they are alot of money, but yeah I would do it again just for the turnout.

    Re: Wiring Though The Box

    thats the best way to do it is drilling the hole and then sealing it after you put the wires throught iv burt up alot of terminal cups because they cant handle all the power running throught it i mean there plastic and if you have even 1000rms running throught it, it still burnt up on me

    Plastic is a good insulator. Something isn't right if your terminal cups are BURNING.

    Re: Wiring Though The Box

    no
    I dont think so
    its not a conductor
    so you either had sparks and heat flying off of the wire leads, or it never happened

    and if you had enough heat on the cups,they would have caught the box/car on fire
