Ok I built a box for my 2 subs a while back. Air leaks around the subwoofer while playing, therefore I need to fix that leak. What's the best way to do this?

Either build a new box or make a new baffle for it with a better hole. If it is the right sized hole and it's just not sealing, try to find a new gasket for it.

If the holes are the correct size then use some rope caulk. Can find it at any home supply store in the weatherstripping section...

Duct tape does work, but you have to put it on the outside of the box, sealing the edge of the sub to the box. I've seen a few SPL guys use it.

I'm pretty sure my post was more helpful than suggesting duct tape
