Socket Cap Screws for Klipsch Speakers

OK - so I'm installing LED rings behind my factory Klipsch speakers. They currently have 1 1/4" socket cap screws - not machine screws, but lag-type screws. I can't seem to find anywhere online where to find these? I need 1/2" longer ones. Any ideas where to find what I'm talking about?

So this seems amazingly silly, but i seriously can't find these. I've gone to McMaster, Fastenal, etc. I've googled everywhere. I've had a long series of exchanges w/ ASA - they have no information. I've contacted Klipsch & MasterCraft via their websites w/ no responses. I even board messaged the Klipsch guy through this website.

Surely there are some who have put LED rings behind their cabin speakers and needed longer screws - did those who did that just use non-socket cap screws?

Try “pointed screw” on McMaster.

I do not see an internal hex option. You might have to concede to a square drive or a Phillips.

I had the same problem. No idea where MC gets the SHCS in stainless. I found some black ones but no shiny ones. I settled on shiny stainless button head philips screws.

The only place I’ve ever seen something like this is parts express. They do have something very similar, but doesn’t appear to be stainless. Perhaps you could call them and see if their supplier offers stainless.

I had the same problem on my 2016 X23 but ended up using factory screws and haven't had an issue since.

I looked everywhere and couldn't find them.

I previously bought some on eBay but they were too small. I'm not sure what size head to purchase. I can't remember if the stock screws are M3.5, M4, M5, M6 head.

Does anyone know?

Bump in case anybody has found a source for an oem equivalent. When I can I will measure my existing ones to see which on the ebay link may be the correct size.
