    As opposed to...plastic wood screws? Lol. But ya, drywall screws should work fine, just as long as you're not removing and putting your sub back in alot.

    just regular drywall screws. make sure to predrill the hole first or risk splitting the wood.

    they get 'tapped' into the wood. I use epoxy to make sure they never move.
