The boxes will be placed right against the wall so the slimmer the connector the better. This is the reason why i bought those binding posts. Also they are quite easy to install and i hope they won't need sealing them with silicone.
The speakON connectors are quite big. I've already bought the binding posts so..
I can use bare wire from the outside but from the inside i will need some type of a connector. And now that i think about it, could the vibrations caused from the driver be large enough that the two nuts can loosen themselves?

Really ? if this can happen then i need to think of another solute. I didn't want speakON because of it's size. The binding posts where going to be placed on the back of the box and the box will be placed against the wall.
I did a research my self to see how much power can the speakON handler and it's more then sufficient.

So power wise i should be fine but what about vibration wise ? Can the nuts from the inside loosen ?
I haven't drilled any holes yet so i have time to think about it. I really don't like the speakON connector size and look. It's plastic and nasty colors.So i can't out it on the side. I've also decided to use fake leather instead of painting the boxes. The leather look will match the living room style.
