Wood Inserts

     Illustrated are examples of wood inserts often used to secure speaker parts and fittings to loudspeaker cabinets. The inserts are available in a range of metric sizes. The most common for speaker building being M4 to M10 sizes. The types can be further defined as Knock-in varieties and Screw-in's.

      Each component design has its own advantages and dis-advantages. Tee Nuts have moderate self-clinching / pull-out but have great resistance to twist. Barbed Knock-in's have reasonable pull-out resistance but low twist specification. Screw-in varieties have very high pull-out resistance but very low reverse twist i.e. they unscrew easily.

      Available as shouldered or non shouldered, the shouldered Knock-in varieties may be used to provide a threaded insert from the cabinet inner face although accurate alignment is required to achieve a satisfactory fitting on the reverse side. Similarly, Tee Nuts can also be used in this manner. For further information refer to our article on How to fit Spikes
