Hey,

I ve got my box stuck down with 3 strips of velcro on the bottom of the box.

The velcro is about 3-4 dollars per meter and you get the rougher stuff, so you can get a good grip to the carpet on the bottom of the boot.

You'll be suprised at how well the damn thing is stuck down, and the bonus thing is that there is no drilling or cutting up of your car.

If you making the box or buying one make sure youve got a easyway to unscrew the signal wire if your moving the sub. (in my case its to get to the spare if i ever needed to.

Cheers

Will

under the sub box did u put the velcro strips onto the carpet?? does the sub box slide around at all or ever roll ?? say if you were braking hard or accelerated off fast would it ever roll?

i need to make mine so it dont slide around but hardly any where for the drill holes to be made because of the spare tire, this may be the solution.



cheers

The strips i only placed on the sub box.

You know with velcro how there are two surface types? You get the rough one, because the carpet acts like the soft stuff.

In regard to the box moving around, i havent had any probs at all. You will be supprised at how well the velcro grips.

I took it to the FPV day cruise and we had a fair bash and i didnt have any probs at all.

Cheers

Will

I am using a thing called ROK BOX STRAPS, which is basically a strap with a clip in the middle, half goes on the box, half on the floor, and you just unclip it when you want to take it out. I think I got these from tonkins audio...

I also have an AU with gas. I have got a custom box, designed to fit over the ledge on the left hand side of an AU boot.

AU2 S-pack Owner: Silhouette Black, XR6 Wheels, Tickford Sunroof, C2R rear bar, Checker Plate Floor Mats, Chrome Door Sills, Blue Backlite Dash, Blue Painted Brake Callipers, Advanced Extractors, Magnaflow High Flow Cat, 2.5" Stainless Steel Mandrel Bent Custom Exhaust, Genie Muffler. Sony Explode 50w x 4 deck, Kenwood 140w speakers (front and rear), Boss 1200 watt Amplifier, 12" Orion Sub in custom box. More To Come!!

My box is the Perfect size to wedge in between the parcell shelf and the boot floor beding the rear seats.

Thats the best way make a box in a sedan, to fit the spot and access the spare with no troubles.
If your upper back seat has a "ski" hole even better...hint hint.

Takin it to 7 turnin it to 11

I've got a sheet of MDF that covers the floor of my boot, with the sub box screwed down to that.
