Fitting a sub box

Just got a sub in a carpeted box, was wondering if anyone had any advice on fixing it down in the boot? Thanks

I've had a couple now, one a BIG double 12" JL Audio and the last two have been single 12" ones but I've never "fixed" them down as such. I just have it pushed right forward, up to the rear of the seats and none of them have moved at all. You can fit some velcro strips if you feel you need them and I have heard of some folks bolting them down ! This does make them less "stealable" (??) but you gotta know what's under the floor when you start drilling or you'll find yourself in a world of bother.

I'd go for the velcro


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER

i have to agree with above velco strapes seem the way forward saves drilling and ive fitted twin 12z in a double carpetted box and it slide perfectly in to the boot right to the back and hasnt moved a inch, possible due to the weight.

only benifits i can see from a bolted down sub is the sub will have a solid base to kick off same as 6x9s if there not fixed solidly they sound different....

hope this helps mate

Velcro is the easiest but if you want it more solid, put in a "False Floor".

Get a piece of plywood or MDF and drawn an outline of your boots carpet onto it, cut it out.. glue/staple the carpet to it and place it into your boot, you can use corner brackets to screw the sub box onto the floor.

Bit heavy duty tbh but i've seen it done that way so many times (Flaming annoying when customers want there spare wheels out!!)

Question Amp Power Cable

I know it's a bit 'off topic' but how did you get the power cable for your amp into the cabin from the battery in the engine bay.

I don't want to drill a hole through the bulkhead if there's already a spare gromit or something. If there's already a hole somewhere, please describe where it is.
