Installing Self-Anchoring Eye Bolt & safety cable on Atmos speaker
I have Katherine speaker that will need a safety cable attached for an Atmos installation. Access into the speaker is difficult through the drivers (soldered with short wire leads), so I am going to have a difficult time gaining access to install a nut on the inside of the cabinet to secure the bolt. I can get in through the the speaker terminal port, and install a traditional eye bolt and nut, but the eye bolt and cable would attach to the bottom of the speaker. In the event of a mounting failure the speaker would swing wildly and get damaged against the wall. I could flip the speaker upside down so the eye loop/bolt is on top, but not sure if it will have any detrimental impact on the sound of this speaker. I will have to check with EW on this. If anyone has used a self-anchoring eye bolt that requires no internal access to secure a nut, please let me know, and if possible provide a link.
