so 4 of the 8 mounting screws dont tighten onto my box. they just keep spinning. is this ok or should i fix this some how? and how could i fix this easily? maybe rotate it a little and making new holes would work?

that would work, or check out tee nuts.

If you dont need to get the sub out I would not worry about it

use some slightly larger screws and use a torque setting if you have a power drill:)

larger screws or toothpicks and glue to shim up the existing holes, so the screws will grab...

Larger screws, rotate the sub, predrill your holes with a small bit, etc.
