    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.

    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.
