Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

nobody is talking about taking

screws out and putting them back in.

the only screws that i have found that did not require retightening were screws that were --locked-- in place with a dab of paint or glue on the screw head/basket.

whether 40yr old altec/jbl/telefunken/ev/coral/etc if they didnt have some kind of locking mechanism the woofers always and sometimes the midranges but hardly ever the tweeters needed to have the mounting screws tightened.

and i regularly find tweeter faceplate screws that need tightening.

not the screws that mount the faceplate to the baffle but the screws that mount the motor to the faceplate.

im not talking about full turns of the screws but maybe anywhere from 1 turn to 1/8th.
