buy 1/2" wood dowel ,buy 1/2" wood drill bit . drill out the stripped holes ,then cut dowel in to lengths about as thick as the cabinet walls (stubby little barrels of 1/2" wood) then wood glue the barrels into the 1/2" holes you drilled wait 2 days for glue to set .MARK THE HOLES , use the driver & a felt pen to mark the holes / then drill small holes slightly smaller than the screw size & then thread the screws in & DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE SCREWS . whoooH yer done !
Very important that you wait 2 days for the wood glue to set up !!! it must be rock hard

The screw holes are at 45 degrees, 135 degrees 210 degrees and 305 degrees. Rotating your speaker 45 degrees would result in your new holes being at 0 degrees, 90 degrees, 180 degrees, and 270 (assuming you divide the circular opening into 360 degrees).

Now don't you think it would look odd with 2 identical speakers having the woofers installed with different mounting points?

I am sure that if you actually took just .00001 second longer, you would have understood what I was saying...

But alas, I digress as the speakers cannot be rotated if these are indeed as pictured below (courtesy of Kilpsch website) so the OP will have to restort to other means to solve the issue at hand.

Yes, it doesn't work like that. I thought this was obvious.

No, I don't think it would look odd. Especially behind a grill. But why 45°? If the speaker were circular, all you would have to do is rotate it a few degrees in order to move the screw holes.

Why waste any more time?

Uh, yeah.......... exactly.

This was already discussed earlier in the thread, btw.

really? I am the one who posted the picture to show the hilarity of rotating a square speaker

YAYYYY i fixed the problem, i just used toothpicks, and it works, BIG THANKS to everyone who helped me. Hooked them up and they sound pretty good, but not as good or as loud as my RB-61's, so i might sell them, if anybody wants them and lives in the Minneapolis/Saint Paul, MN area, ill give you a good deal.

Houston, the Eagle has landed! I guess it wasn't "rocket science" after all! Toothpicks, and a little superglue can work wonders, almost as handy as a roll of duct tape !

That is about the most common way to fix stripped screw holes in wood or wood products.
Probably been around since wood screws were invented.
