Exclamation How are you securing your sub enclosures?

I'm looking for some ideas that are the least invasive. Currently I have velcro tape on the bottom of my box and it grips perfectly against the stock trunk liner, however the whole liner can slide around with aggressive driving. Are people using some brackets and drilling into the plastic cover over the spare wheel? Are you reinforcing that somehow?

Thanks.

L brackets on the back of the enclosure screwed into the seat backs has always worked for me. If the enclosure is high enough, the same method works well screwed into the the rear deck. Tough to give any other ideas without seeing your setup.

I'll try and get some pics from the front and back. I have fold down seats and actually like to drop them sometimes to let more bass into the cabin, so attaching there isn't preferable. I'm leaning towards some sort of bracket attached downwards into the spare wheel cover. I don't want it to break or tear though. I'll look at some washer combos to reinforce. My amp is mounted on top so not as many options with fastening up there.

thanks.

wow, that's a huge enclosure. the floor might be your only option from what you described. Be careful not to screw into the gas tank. It is usually under the rear seats. Just be cautious and you should be fine.

What you can do is screw to of those screw hook devices into the back of seats, side of your carpet, etc. One on each side of you enclosure and get a nice, black rubber bungee cord that fits. That way its quick to remove.
