View Full Version : Gluing Port to Box

I used pvc cement to glue my pieces of port together. What type of glue should I use to attach the port to the mdf box? The pvc cement again or wood glue or something else?

Its an aero. I would just use screws and some silicone around the inside if it to seal it up.

eh didn't really wanna use screws, i think it'll look a lot cleaner without them.

I dont know i stick to slot port but im thinking your not going to be able to get the hold you want being the port is plastic and box mdf. i think your gonna have to go with the screws and silicone as mentioned

If you use silicone, the port will be removable for use in another box at a later date. Titebond II might not let it go without damage.

Or use some skinny weatherstripping from Home Depot...that's what I use for my subs that don't have a rubber gasket.
