    I used two 18" bungee cords to secure mine. I hooked each one on each side of the subwoofer grill (an eye hook would work if you don't have a grill) and then hooked the other end into one of the holes in the sheet metal close to where the trunk hinges. Works great and allows for easy removal of the sub if you need to haul something big or auto-x, etc...

    +1 on the Velcro strips.

    I know a few people who do that and it works great.

    I was considering using some velcro on mine. I only have one 10" and the box/sub assembly doesn't way very much surprisingly. I was worried about the trunk carpet rippling and bunching up... I guess you don't have this problem since your setup is so heavy?

    Screw them down to something... or use some velcro to hold the box down. You could use bungee cords, but everyone sees them.

    On my '04 STi, I made an L-shaped bracket. The top half screwed to the back deck, and the bottom to the sub box itself. Once I ripped a few screws out of the sheet metal (the car was THAT stiff) in turns, I finally got it to stay with two brackets and 10 screws. It wasn't going ANYWHERE.
