    Question about mounting subs in box?

    I just got a pair of RF 10" Punch Zs. Should I use all the screw holes to mount the sub in the box? What is the best size screw to use?

    should use T-bolts so there is no chance of stripping the holes out

    Re: Question about mounting subs in box?

    i've used both. my only problem with t-nuts is if you are unscrewing them and u puch down a little to hard. the spikes will come out and it's a beast to get it back into the wood again.
