    Wiring with directly connected leads

    I just about got finished finally mounting the AQ sd2.515 in its box, but ran into a problem. I had the black and red wires twisted together for the 2 ohm load, but I had a hell of a lot of trouble trying to use a short length of speaker wire inside the box (so it doesn't rattle up against the box when it hits, or is that wrong?) and connecting the 3 wires together...

    anyone got pics? That would help my noobness out a lot.

    Re: Wiring with directly connected leads

    Ok, I guess the question really is this - if I make the speaker wire longer inside the box, would there be a rattling noise of the wire hitting the box when the sub kicked? or is that not an issue at all?

    Well **** then that solves all the problems. I was pissed when I made that post so that's half the reason it was so dumb. I was just having trouble working with the short length of wire, holding the sub up, and trying to tie it all together. so yeah.
