Hold the speaker tighten? Can you be a tad bit more specific? Is the terminals where you screw down on the speaker wire, or the speaker drivers themselves?

Spinning the rear tire at 150mph while at 3/4 lean angle will put wrinkles in your seat

Hmmmm, maybe stripped threads in the driver. Can you remove the screws completely?

If so, try pulling out the driver and seeing if the screws will tighten down all the way.

"Houston We have a problem"

Got a mouse in your pocket?

If the screw holes are stripped, you might get by with a toothpick pushed down in the hole and snapped off flush with the surface. You could also rotate the drivers if they are concentric and drill new holes.

Ok so got all of the screws out, and pulled out the driver, and screwed the bolts in to the wood without the driver in place, and it keeps spinning.

If it's stripped, wouldn't it be the driver that's stripped?

Okay, pet motels idea should work for rotating and drilling new holes should work for you?

Rotate the driver and drill new screw holes - or break off a couple of
toothpick pieces and glue them in each hole, with something like the
Tighbond wood glue.

Also, if they're brand new since you just picked them up, could you return them easy enough? Which scenario seems better to you?

Hey Josh, that wall anchor sounds like a great idea. I'm sure you can get a small enough on that will fit snug and work perfect.

Anytime brother.

He was also thinking of putting the EPOXY in the holes, then right away put the speaker in, then i could leave the screws in like that.

You rotate the woofer - then get a marker and make a mark through
the woofer screw hole on the woofer, so you will know where to drill.
Take the woofer out, fill the old holes with puddy to prevent air leaks.
Then drill the new screw holes - put the woofer back in and screw it
down, be carefull not to over tighten it.

Or, do it this way - do not use epoxy
