Default I have subs to put int he trunk but how can i secure them?

I have a box with two 10' subs and the amp is bolted to the back of the box and I want to know how i can secure it so that the box wont fall over and so I dont have to drill into the floor of my car.

10' subs?? Dude, I think those are big enough to hold themselves down .

You can make like a netting.. that attatches to the wheel well.. and hooks into the sub box, like the cargo net.

I think someone (or someones) have "L" brackets that attach it along by the seat...not sure. Wait for one of them to come around, they'll tell ya how it'* done.

Are you using using factory sub-boxes?
Try getting some custom boxes made. They're usually broad enough that they won't fall over.

i used to have mine rigged up with a 2x4 going from the box to the back of the trunk by the latch...nice tight fit will hold a lot..

now i have a box that is 36" EXACTLY and 14" high...it fits so tight, i can barely get it out...nothing else needed
