    I will be starting my Tempest Subwoofer soon and was wondering, what do I cover screw heads with after box assembly?
    Wood putty, fiberglass...?
    Thanks

    I drill them a tiny bit deep and then fill the remainder with wood putty or bondo(auto body filler).

    Well if you never want to remove the driver then bondo in the screws.
    But if you use Phillips or square head screws there are plastic cosmetic covers available in several colors. I'd suggest checking with one of the bigger auto sound part suppliers

    Thanks for all the replies.
    I am looking for something permanent to be used before finishing the sub with a veneer. It looks like wood filler or bondo will work based on the comments.
    Thanks fo the quick replies.
