    i've got my box almost done, and have a question about mounting the drivers. the mounting holes in the frame have the surround slightly covering them and i was wondering if i need to be careful not to damage it, or if i can just wrench a screw down onto it. both of my woofers are like this and i was just wondering if others were the same way. here is a crappy pic pic

    let me know what you guys think, i'd hate to damage the drivers.

    My AV15 is like this, and my shiva before it actually had 3/4 of the mounting hole covered by the surround. [​IMG] I guess it's normal... they just wanted to make the surround wide enough to give it enough surface area to be glued to the frame. I just screwed right through it, and it's been fine for me.

    I e-mailed Eric this but thought I'd post here too for others that may be wondering the same thing. Yes, its normal for the surrounds to partially or fully cover the screw holes. Its okay to screw through it but put a dab of lubricate that wont eat foam or rubber on the screw head so it doesnt bind on the surround and separate it from the frame. It isnt really as important with foam as rubber since the screws tend to grab the rubber more.
