Locktite is good but does not provide corrosion protection. I use liquid electrical tape.

OK, re-read your post. Mount being the key word. Lock tire will do fine. Either red or blue.

For screws I use a small dab of RTV silicon.
Seems to set up and hold them from vibrating out

as long as you drill the right size hole its fine. its when the hole is just a tad too big you need to epoxy or reglass over the hole and get it right.

The screws have never backed out. I'm replacing the speakers and I just want to make sure that they don't back out after I swap them out.

Gotcha. I would just use silicone than. Chances are they still won't back out but better safe than sorry I guess. Wouldn't wanna step on a screw while fishing.

Fiberglass. It's the speakers in the anchor locker of a contender.
