    mounting inverted advice

    I searched before and read that if using the same regular screws (as you would a normal mounted sub) works for mounting inverted then just mount the sub like that. I've had my sub like that for about a month but it recently fell out with the screws. Is there a different more secure type of screw I should look into? Or get a screw with more width and use those instead? Thanks

    Did you use t-nuts? If not, you can use them to help secure the screw better rather than just the wood.

    Re: mounting inverted advice

    I had my sub mounted regularly before, with just regular umm..1 1/4 inch screws I think, the ones recommended usually when people ask on this forum, so I'm using those same screws. What are t-nuts exactly? Maybe that'll do the trick. Would it not make sense to get screws a little thicker?

    T nuts get stamped into the wood and then you run a bolt or screw in it

    Re: mounting inverted advice

    I sell Tee Nuts at my work. There is a car audio shop here in Nashville called CarTronics and they come in and bought them from the store I worked at for a few days. They are very fond of them. Never used them in a sub box but i could only imagine how good they would be.
