screwed up hole for one of my subs.

Recommended Posts

well everything went perfect on my box............til i put one of the subs in and i cut out to much on the circle...i have no clue how i missed that but i did.


whats the easiest way to solve this problem without replacing the whole front panel?


basically the sub will sit in the hole fine but if i were to put in screw it would probably come out the side of the wood.


should i just do some predrills at a slight angle so my screws will catch all of the wood? thats the only thing i can think of right now and i think it should work.


if not, i might just have to cut a square out around the bare minimum of the cricle and just inster another piece flat with it, then glue it put some brackets on it and seal it.


but i just need some other suggestions if you got em

Much as I shudder at the thought of potentially seeing your penis, writing caraudio.com on your dick would kick ass. Que the joke about only being able to get up to "CAR" on it....

It depends what it is goin in.


If it is a standard cab truck, you might not have enough room to do a double baffle. If space is not a problem, double that bithc up FTW.

you could of always glued a small piece of 3/4" mdf to the back where hole sits redrilled the hole and just use a 3/4" longer screw.

but double baffle is a good idea if you have the space.

yeah i doubled it up, recut the holes and made sure i didnt **** up any of the holes this time. I just gotta sand down one side of the box for the wood to even up with the rest and then paint in port and carpet it and im finally done!
