Hey there I was just wandering what everyone uses to mount your subs to you mdf rings or sub box. I want sometihng that is going to be stronger then just screws so I can actaully tighten the sub down. I have an idea what I want to use but I can not remember the name of them. What they are is a peice of metal that has a meta plate on the back then a threaded tube that will go up through a hole that will be drilled thought the mdf and then the second part is like a bolt that will thread into this other peice so It will be metal threading into metal and there will be a greater surface area to distribute the pressure on the mdf. anyway if anyone knows what I am talking about can you tell me what they are and maybe a pic would be nice too. or else what do you use???? Thanx for reading this long bugger. lata

Screws work. If they did not, no one would be using them...

hurricane nuts or T-nuts. at the local lowe's or HD or rockler or places like that. online works too, but you gotta wait. I found some at Rockler that screwed onto the backside to prevent movement, falling out, etc. Epoxy works just as good.
I bought a 3/8" bolt and a 1/4" to test with. 3/8" wouldn't go through the sub mounting holes, but 1/4" worked well(for 12's)

yes DJ t-nuts that is what they are called thanx a million I want to use these just to be alittle safer that I don't put all my time into making a fiberglass box and end up screwing up with the mountin hardware.
