Default Got subs! Need help...

I just picked up my subs.. Two MTX 10'* in a sealed box
This will sound funny, if not a little dangerous (i expect to hear warnings about this) they are running off the factory amp for now, because fortunately, the AMP i had to get (made up my mind on it 6 months ago) was nice and sold out

So now im screwed until i can get back out of town to pick up a god damn amp...

It surprisingly sounds okay off the factory amp believe it or not, i was shocked

So any tips on how to place the box in the trunk? Which directions?
And any tips on mounting the sucker because im afraid of it sliding to the back of the trunk and the wires comming out and connecting....
Its moving around alot with the bumps/corners/speed up here...

i would make them face the rear of the trunk, and also have them as close to the rear as possible so that they have a good loading surface, as far as mounting them goes, u can use l brackets

Try them in all the positions you can. I did mine everyway i could concieve, and i'm still not sure what I like more. They hit harder (that I can feel) facing me, and sound about the same as when they aren't. Here'* my setup.



2 10" Sealed box. The driver side, is flat, and the backside is angled.

and mounting....
