T-nuts (teenuts) question: From the back?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by John Bigboote, Apr 10, 2009.


  1. I'd always just assumed the flat, outer part of a T-nut would be on the outside of a cab, facing the driver's mounting surface. This seems to have been borne out by talk of T-nuts pulling out, being glued, being "countersunk" flush, etc. Well, I have to mount a driver in a new cab, and it occurred to me -- why not mount them from the back side? Then the bolt pulls it into the wood, rather than potentially pulling it out and/or loosening.

    Then I thought, duh, of *course* that's how you're supposed to do it, you knucklehead.

    Then I thought, y'know what? I should ask the guys on TB. So, is there any reason to mount them from the front rather than from the rear?

    They should be mounted from the rear. Otherwise you are depending on the teeth holding the speaker to the baffle.
     
  3. Yeah. As I said: Duh.

    Thanks.

    Yep, mounted from the rear.

    Never seen them any other way.
