    what do you use to seal the sub to the enclosure?

    I wasn't sure what I should use exactly. I need something that seals the sub to the box for an air tight fit, but not something that behaves like glue.

    why do you want something that "doesnt behave like glue"?

    Could use silicone... It peels right off and it's "not quite glue."

    Weather stripping will be cleaner, though.

    yes I want the option of removing the sub. I don't want glue because it could make removal difficult. weather stripping sounds great and should create a very good seal.

    OHHH i thought you were talking about sealing corners inside the box, not the sub to baffle...D'oh! LOL yeah weatherstripping sounds good... some subs come with a rubber ring surrounding the outside perimeter of the sub like my memphis's have. It saves some effort.
