    Mounting a subwoofer 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."

    I have always used 5/8 - 3/4 inch metal screws and drilled directly into the box. The supplied gasket should be good enough. The only prob that I have encountered with my may of sub installation is that if you need to remove the sub from the box a couple of times, the cheap pressed fiber board tends to start falling apart around the screw holes. When this happened to me I just repaired the box with a plastic wood filler. You can re-drill the holes once this stuff dries.
