3D Printed Car Audio Parts? Don't make THIS mistake adding threads!

In car audio we can 3d print many different helpful parts: Amplifier racks, speaker adapters, speaker pods, subwoofer boxes etc. But when we need to attach different parts together we need to use heat set inserts.

But you need to design for the heat set insert properly and use this mounting technique to get the best results... Here's how!
