    I use it for looks. Good connection if it's a conductor.

    most spl ppl use it for ohm load ease. so u dont have to take the sub out to wire it down. mines like that. 1.4 then switch a couple wires then poof, .35

    Agreed. Makes it very easy to seal off.

    I never thought of this, and from now on every box I build I'm doing it. You're a genius..

    Stainless isn't the best conductor, but it works. Can be achallenge to find something else
