    Mounting a sub to a custom box

    I am new to the speaker box building community and have no idea what kind of screws to mount the subwoofer with. The box is already built and all I have to do is drill and mount the subs. I know t-nuts should be used but should I use metal or plastic screws? Should I use additional gaskets is the sub already has its own? It seems stupid, but can someone please help.

    "I told her about my conversation three years ago with the political leader of Islamic Jihad in Gaza. "What's the difference between suicide, which the Koran condemns, and martyrdom?" I asked. "Suicide," he replied, "is done out of despair. But remember: most of our martyrs today were very successful in their earthly lives." In short, there was a future to live for--and they detonated it anyway."

    T-nuts are more for theft prevention.. I have never had a system loud enough to really gain attention so never bothered with it.. Drywall screws are all I use and never had a leak problem.

    Drywall screws are by far the best. A lot of people like to use the T-nut and bolt combo, however, they seem to be more a pita than they are worth.
