    Holes for subwoofer mounting stripped

    A couple of the holes that the screws go into to mount the subwoofer to the baffle are stripped out. Do u guys have any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks in advance...

    Actually T-nuts and hurricane nuts are 2 different things. Hurricane nuts > T-nuts

    Couldn't you just rotate the sub?

    ok you can take a toothpick or 2, woodglue them in the hole, allow to dry - screw it down

    turn sub 1/2" and screw it down.

    t-nut - partsexpress sells a spear kit with them


    I only use tnuts (glue them in also) on big power builds (dont try to get them to bite into your wood if it have resin on it)
