    Motor separated from basket, what do i do?

    alrite so i bought these woofers from Brian Owens on here awhile back and put them in my wall. They are 15" Fi BTL softparts with different motors. im not sure of what motors they are but they arent fi production. anyway i finally got everything hooked up on the Z2LV friday and then today i was driving at liek 1/4 volume and it made a horrible noise so i stopped and messed with it and noticed it was stiff. so i pulled it out and found that the bolts going into the motor have stripped out.. WTf do i do? i guess i can call Fi tomarrow but if i gotta get a new motor and a new recone and waht not on top of that thats gonna ****. it jsut really upset me ive been waitng all this time to get it hooked up and 2 days later... salt. hope it gets fixed before the 30th......any suggestions? lol WEDLING>haha as long as it holds/ works.

    You could use some jbweld or some kind of epoxy. Id only try that if I was going to mount it inverted. I tried to epoxy and old pbx xtreme because the same thing happened with the bolts, but it was messy and didnt work because of the weight.

    Gonna have to tear the softparts out and tighten the screws. Make sure to put loctite on the threads and a dab of ca glue on the top for good measure.
