Default Sundown Audio Team 15 Subwoofer mounting help

I will be installing 2 Sundown audio Team 15s Ferrite motor version in a ported box in the back of my SUV and wanted to get some suggestions regarding mounting.

Due to space constraints i cannot get more than 2" Baffle installed so i am planning to install a Steel/Iron mounting rings to the inside of the baffle and then install the subs using some Allen bolts.

However i could not figure how to install the Ring properly so that it aligns with the sub-woofer mounting holes. Any help would be appreciated.

Any other ideas to make the install sturdy is also welcomed as every single subs is approx 140-145 Lbs and its a lot of weight and i don't think 2" MDF baffle would not be able to handle it with Wooden screws. Please help

This is one of my 15s and it only weighs 120.7-120.9 kept flicking back and forth. They are heavy indeed! Only a few subs currently weighing more #1 being Orion's new SPL X subwoofer with it's enormous frame lol

Also forgot to mention why would anyone in their right mind use wood screws with any sub larger than sundowns u series maybe . Sundowns larger custom tooled baskets come with spots to drill out along side each mounting hole you can put 24 washer bolts per sub that is plenty on a 2" thick mdf baffle. I think bolts look better anyways but that's just my opinion. Unless you can make a trim ring with little to no extra effort what is the point of going through the extra work?

Thanks for the suggestion mate. I thought of doing the same as well but my dilemma is how to tighten the nuts from the inside while mounting the sub after the enclosure is ready. Can you possibly share a picture of the type of bolts that your suggesting? That would help. Thanks for helping.

Go to a local Fastenal and ask them for help finding a bolt similar to this
Google Express
Predrill the correct size holes for whatever size bolt you go with and put a good dab of CA glue in with them. Undercarriage bolts are pretty much what your looking for.
