So i'm literally sitting in my garage and waiting for a response on this...

How do you use all-thread as bracing? Just make the hole slightly smaller (it's 3/8") and then thread it though with nuts and washers on the inside and outside?

Get me a quick response and I might even make a build log by the end of the week :D

correct, drill the hole large enough for the allthread to barely fit through, run a washer and nut up on the inside and outside, seal it with some silicone and you are good to go. Might use some loctite

Anyone with a brain can figure this out.

Always such a hater, just thought I would double check before I ruin a box.

I apologize.

Stupid questions deserve stupid answers.

How else are you supposed to do it? With hopes and dreams?

Didn't know if you literally threaded it through or something of the like.

I'm really starting to think your mom doesn't love you.

for a cleaner look use a carriage bolt on the visible side and join with a coupling. you can even set in in and fill over and wont even see it after paint/carpet. to use 2 carriage bolts you need a reverse thread one and a turnbuckle with jam nuts.

You're a cool guy! I see what you did there! Yo-- haha :laugh:

Oh, wait. That has no bearing on the fact that I think dumb questions should be asked.

I have never seen Idskot have a positive response on any thread i have read. Always treats people like **** and from what i can tell is a serious douche bag. Why even post. We all got to start somewhere with car audio, agreed? At one time we didn't know anything either so why put down? Sorry to point you out but come'on man. . .

Cut a 2x4 and screw and glue it in.

Man, I see all these boxes with like 1 or 2...mine has 5 lol
that thing better not flex

Edit: I've got it covered in bed liner, just waiting for it to drive, then I've gotta figure out some way to run power wire to the bed of my truck, then back into the cab lol.

After that I should be bumpin :)

I like it. It's nice to see that you're getting creative an ain't doing the same thing that everybody else is.
