I've spent ages looking for black hex screws for screwing the speakers into my sub - but I can only find silver ones. Can anyone point me at a source for these?

Same question for spade connectors. The spades on the XLS are small - 2.8mm and 4.8mm - and I can only find connectors of that size that will take small cables. My speaker cable is ~4.5mm2. Sander - did you solder on bigger spades so that you could use 6.3mm connectors?

What is the excursion on the XLS 10? The figure seems to have gone missing from the stats on the Tymphany web site. The speaker cover that I'm making will allow for ~6mm excursion - would this be sufficient for 'moderate' listening? I'm making the cover out of 12mm mdf, so I can't really allow more than about 6-7mm for excursion.

Thanks to anyone who can provide help! :-)
