    Does anyone know where I can get some foam gasket tape? (local HD doesn't have any) I'm remounting my sub driver and don't want to spend $5 shipping on a $3 item. Thanks!

    I’m sure HD has something suitable. Check the aisle where weather stripping is sold.

    If not, you can use rope-caulk. It’s a little messy when you take the speaker out, but it makes a great (and air-tight) seal.

    Yes, Lowe's or Home Depot weatherstripping section. Get black, CLOSED cell foam gasket tape, 3/8" or 1/2" thick x whatever width that is most suitable for your driver's flange width. The rope caulk actually seals great, a bit messy and takes a little longer and usually you only find it in white - I don't know if it's made in black.
