From what I could see, there is only one correct way to insert the clamps that hold the speaker. Doing it the correct way both pieces are an even square. Doing it the only other way would make the two pieces uneven in length. I don't think I can do anything else to make them come in any further. Does anyone know if Comp USA is a authorized dealer for the VTF-12? I see these speakers there for 130.00 on close out. Wow! what a nice price.
