use a good course thread wood screw and angle it outward from the center. yeah you can use t-nuts but you'll quickly learn those are easier to say to use than actually using.
No I don't! When I first saw it I thought that the surround must have been turned to a point where the holes weren't lined up. Then I read that a lot of the beefier subs come like this. To tell you the truth the thought of having to make the hole makes me cringe a little as I surely don't want to screw it up....literally. So when you say nailed it, is that literally what you did and the best way to do this?
Those spax screws seem to be pretty popular as well. Is there a particular size that works best for this application? I'm guessing holes need to be predrilled as well with these? I'm no carpenter but I can follow directions pretty good. Everything I've read on box building says that any hole needs to be predrilled in mdf to keep it from cracking. But does that only apply when drilling the holes on the edges (into the length of the board) or the face as well?
