    Whats the best way to run speaker wire into a box

    I have a ported box, would it be ok just to run the wire through the port or buy some terminals?

    either use a terminal, or just drill a hole a lil bit bigger than your speaker wire and seal it in with some silicone.

    cut out a 10 inch hole in the back, and fish it through.
















    jk drill a tight hole, and fill it with silicon, or another sealant.

    Bolts on back of box. That way you can change how you got your subs wired without taking them out the box
