I have a newbie question that I almost created a thread for, but it's probably so basic that it doesn't warrant one. I have a pair of Zaph ZD5s built years ago, and after a recent move the drivers have come loose from their mountings. The acoustical particleboard for half of the driver mount screws are stripped. I know there's probably an easy way to fix this, but the last thing I want to do is stick the wrong kind of epoxy or whatever in there, try and re-attach the drivers, and have the wood split... What's the best way to fix this problem?

Rotate the speaker and install the screws offset into clean wood

Another option is toothpicks and wood glue. Coat several toothpicks in glue, wedge them into the hole, cut them flush. Then reinstall the speaker, being careful to not over tighten the screws. Wood glue won't hold on the screw so it can still be easily removed, but it will hold and repair the hole.

I bought two 18" Dayton Ultimax drivers and was wondering if should power them via iNuke 6000dsp or iNuke 6000 + minidsp or buy the Dayton Audio 1200w DSP plate amp. I like the idea of having the sub all in one with only RCA coming out of my reciever but will the RCA signal deteriorate at roughly 13m/15m in length?

If you don't have the Mini DSP, the I Nuke 6000 DSP is a good choice from a cost perspective.
