    Mounting a 12 inch sub 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."

    Re: Mounting a 12 inch sub to a custom box

    my box is 3/4" mdf. I used 4 1" drywall screws. First drilled a hole with my rotary tool (which happened to be smaller than the screw stem's thickness). Then just drilled it in the hole.

    I hope I didn't crack anything cause I got some high-pitched screeches and stuff
