wood screws, sometimes I'll use a square-head tip.

occasionaly I use undersized bolts, which is my plan when I get my new box for my 15"s

Anyways, wood screws work great.

i figured wood screws but i wasnt sure if i should use self tapping wood screws, or drill holes and just use deck screws, or what.....so would you recommend using the same screws that you use to put your box together???like 1 5/8 deck scews? the wood on the front of my box is 1.5 " thick so thew would work length wise

i don't know what they are called exactly. i am trying to find a pic on the internet to show you.

its a bolt and a locking nut. you drill the hole big enough for the bolt to pass through then you hammer the nut on the other side of that hole.

I use what is called a T nut...thats what they are called....u drill a hole then stick this thing one the backside then I just used bolts to hold it down...its bassically a nut with some things on the front so that it can hold into the wood. here is a pic of it.

where can i buy these?
i can see how these t nuts would be better than just wood screws, but do you think its really necessary? atleast for me? im installing 12 AA arsenals

i don't know if its necessary but i like to use them cause i know it guarantees a tight mount.

I would say get them....u can get them at any hardware store....they are good becuase you get a good seal and if you have to take the sub for any reason you dont have to worry about messing up the mdf.

ya those work perfect.

its cool, cause you can take sub in and out as many times as you want, and not harm the mdf itself. its worht it.

just make sure u get the right screws, with the right thread. like course screw and course tnut.

screws hold just fine.. the problem is when u start takin screws out and putting them back in it wears the thread that the screw has cut into the wood and eventually it wont hold
