I was just about to mount my cool new shiva to my box and I thought...hmm... I wonder if theres a better way to do this... soooooooo:

What are the best screws to mount a shiva to a 3/4" mdf sealed box?

Anything else I should do? I was thinkin about lining the hole with a line of clear silicon sealant stuff to make it absolutely air tight... is that the best way to do that?

anything else?

Not sure about the silicon.. I have some foam trim stuff that came with my speakers.. about 1/2" whide.. 1/4" thick.. glue on one side.. That's the seal for mine.. *shrug*..

The tightest you can ;)

Silicone won't do your basket much good... it's got a corroding substance inside it..even though it's 100% dry, I wouldn't trust silicone coming in contact with my sub baskets... besides, it's **** hard to make the layer even.. so why not go for weather-proofing? that'd do the trick~


anything else?

Yeah, go easy on your ears:)

weather proofing could be good... I'm using that to line all the plastic in my car to stop it from rattling against the metal/windows :P I can use the leftover for the sub thx... anyone else?

I'm getting ready to build my box for two Alpine SWR-1021D subs and may end up ordering these security screws to really frustrate the **** out of any sleezeball that tries to swipe them from me.

The box itself will be a complete ***** to remove from the trunk so this will at least make a thief put some effort into his attempt while I'm getting out of bed, loading the Glock and pulling my shorts on. :D

i thought everyone in the world was smart enough to know that silicon more specifically the fumes will eat the surround on your subsunless you let it dry in another room or away from your subs somwhere like making a gasket on some waxed paper or something like that do not use it to seal your sub down

Ooo... paintball gun fed with about 150psi and some marbles instead of gell caps. :evil:

Yeah, the security screws are very nice. I ordered about 20 more than I needed, but I figure I will use them for other things down the road. Mounted the subs, amps and distribution block with them alreaedy! :D

lol 150psi is not enuf...my gun is low pressure and it runs on very low pressure (highly-modded gun...)

most stock mainstream paintball guns run anywhere from 600-800 psi.

trust me, i used to be hooked to paintball forums and i still own a nice gun... :)

That part of the movie makes me cringe
no other immage ever made me do that.

It like I can feel it

BTW about the silicone
if you let it dry througly (24 hrs)
then it wont eat the SURRROUND
its while it dries that it releases gasses
