Subwoofer wire connecter on box

I'm currently building a sub box for my truck. I was wondering what is the best way to be able to connect the wires and disconnect them easily? For more detail, I have used the things that go on the box that have red and black clips on them, but they never are air sealed. So i can usually hear a whistle coming through that kind of connector. Is there a better way about this?

I'm talking about this type of connector that leaks air.

You can silicone around the plug to seal the air out/in...but it will still not be 100% sealed due to the design of the adapter. The best way to do it, in my experience, is to decide where you want your wires to exit the box and drill a hole just big enough to slip the wires through and seal it with silicone from the inside. This will seal the hole and hold the wires in place. This will force you to use inline quick connects or hard wire to the amp.

I was planning on doing that exact thing. Thank you, and you sig goes along with this! It made me laugh a little bit. I might try wrapping it in bacon...

It's a 2.5 to three hour drive for me. I might be able to use the excuse "I want to go see my sister". She lives up there. Where are you guys goin?

I still live at home since I am a high school student, soooo...... I may or may not be there.
I have a great idea! How about you guys just come on down here, and we can go to snowball in Joplin, Mo. I'm so smart!
