I don't have mine handy, but if I recall correctly you do punch out in the middle and the cord goes through the little maze behind the mounting plate. That helps stop water from running into the unit. I have ridden my bike in severe rain with no issues of water getting to my iPod....
They have a punch out in the back for the cable but that is exactly where the ball connection goes so I think that is useless.
Correct. I thought about just drilling a hole into the box itself. But making it near the mount with the ball plate covering in is a much better solution. Also, I didn't want to use the punch out as it would leave a bigger hole then I needed.Could also squeeze a grommet into that hole and make the port (when wire is running through it) pretty damned water tight. It helps immensely to have the round mounting plate with ball because it covers the whole backside mounting area on the aquabox.
I showed one pic in an earlier post. I drilled another hole in the cutout area and fish the cable through both holes.can anyone show pics of how they wired thru the punchout as designed, with the ball plate mounted (not cut/drill outs)
just got the aqua box for xmas and saw where the cabling goes and can't figure out how its supposed to work with the ball attached...

Hope this makes sense.
That hole is at the 6 oclock position, and I have a 1/2in hole at the top (12 oclock) part of the box where the plate is mounted. Just to try and keep any water out.yeah i saw it, was hoping for a view with the plate unscrewed from underneath
you just drilled straight thru the side to the center?
