    Re: Sub mounting hardware

    You could check out t-nuts, but many people use drywall or wood screws without problems (if you aren't planning on removing subs too often).

    dry wall screws have work for me everytime. but if you are using partical board then screws are not the problem.

    Re: Sub mounting hardware

    T nuts are great. But regular drywall screw work fine for subs that arent extremely heavy or mounted facing down or something. just predrill your holes first

    Re: Sub mounting hardware

    course thread drywall screws and pre drill the holes. Or SPAX 1 1/2" #10 screws if you have monster subs.

    Do NOT overtighten the screws and you won't have any issues...

    Just use regular screws unless you plan on removing the subs often.
