    One screw holding sub is loose, a problem?

    See title. It still has a little pressure, but it's not really tight at all. All of the rest of them are very secure and tight, will this one screw cause me problems?

    Re: One screw holding sub is loose, a problem?

    doubtful, a lot of time i only use 4 screws instead of all 8, but if u want it to be tight, i have used an anchor before when the hole gets to big for the screw, and it worked fine

    one screw caused my D6 sub to leak. So it's possible :P
    It didn't hurt it. Just the sound from one sub sounded like ***. if you pressed down with your finger ont he spot where the screw is, it cleaned up

    Thanks guys.

    I think I'm too **** to even try it like it is now. I'll just glue another piece of mdf to the back of it and drill it into that.

    You could also stick some toothpicks in the hole to give the screw something to bite into.

    Genius

    I swear I'm a total idiot sometimes. Do you think I should put some silicon in the holes?

    Great tootpick idea also, thanks.

    yeah if you turn the sub and redrill all new holes, make sure to fill in the old holes with liquid nails or something like that.

    Not always necessary on subs with rubber mounting gaskets on their ring.
