Introduction
I realized — a little too late — that a couple of retaining clips were rubbing against the topijggtop of the subwoofer/enclosure in my car. One clip was (thankfully) scratching the subwoofer enclosure carpet, but the other one had poked a hole on the subwoofer's rubber surround.
I removed the retaining clips so there would be no issues in the future, but the damage had already been done. So I figured what the heck — might as well make a guide!
