Default Sub box that stays put.

I have a huge box built by jachin. I love the box it sounds and looks great. I would just like to be able to put stuff in my trunk. I have thought of going the FIberglass route. Has anyone has built a box that will stay put in a trunk? Tips? Reccomendations? Help?

Man He makes KillR boxes...

I literally bolted mine to the chassis stiffner that runs behind
the rear passenger seats.... (2k B'ville)

Used some angle iron & tap screw'd to the beam and just
tack'd a nut onto the angle to thread a bolt through the
box (mine has a lip to attach through) 1/4" bolts

perhaps a similar method but dont damage the box!
what about the real heavy hook-n-loop, it'd likely
hang on to the trunk carpet....

I built my box to fasten in this fashion...

the box falls just 1/4" below the "lip" on the
stiffning member. The angle is tight to the
steel and across the chasis I placed some
1/2" thick foam weather strip for the box to
butt up to.

The box was pushed tight to the foam and
then marked for the bolt holes. It'* tight and
don't rattle that I can notice.

Even the eye bolt idea is good but a turnbuckle
would allow you to remove it easily or tighten it
up if it'* noisy.

After reading the post about the bumper collision
causing the trunk to pop and a theft of opportunity...

I thought it'd be a good plan to secure the box through
the pass-through. The box hides the amp and other
sundry equipment, and requires access to the cabin
to remove the bolts to pull the box.

i don't know if your box is carpeted or not..but mine would go all over the place until i carpeted it....the carpet keeps it in place...there are also 2 2x4 legs screwed on underneath and they are wrapped in carpet as well...

There it is...you can see the legs in that shot...might work for yours....

Good luck,

James

Here'* the ones I make, they stay put with no fastening http://bradgoldring.com/goldringaudio.htm

(In 92-99s) I don't know the trunk dimensions for any other years.

Those are some pretty nice little boxes you got there. Did you start the business yourself? How many boxes do you sell a year?
