    Subwoofer may flies around in trunk .. how to prevent such a thing ...

    Well ... I coudn't get my sub mounted under my seat. I had to settle with throwing it in my trunk. Now that its in there it fly around because theres nothing to hold it onto. I used to run dual subs and those boxes would never move. Now that I have a single 10 it flys around the trunk and it scares me. Right now it's sitting in my back seat between the driver seat and the back seat on the floor. I'm pretty short so I move my seat up a good amount when I drive. Any way it's sitting there and actually sounds much better then it did in the trunk but I know it can't stay there. Any ideas on keeping that guy in place?

    I just used some 90 degree shelf mounts from home depot and screwed it into the floor. Just make sure not to hit the gas tank!

    Yeah, with all the sharp turns we subaru guys (and gals) love to make, there is NOTHING that will hold it down other than something like this.



    .



    Trust me, I tried everything.

    Good luck - feel free to PM if you have any questions.

    DON'T JUST SCREW IT, use lock washers and nuts on the other side. The vibrations will rattle it loose.

    that is a lot better than my setup. going to have to do some work tomorrow on my trunk since I have the day off.

    did you use just two L brackets? did you just use the lock washers and nuts for the part that is on the trunk floor?

    That's just screwed into the wooden/cardboard part of the floor, not the metal?
    Would it break if you tried to take it out with the amp/sub still on it if you needed to get the spare or something?

    It wouldn't break, but it would be awkward - If I needed my spare, I would just unscrew the nuts/lock washers and put the sub in the back seat temporarily - sounds like more trouble than it is, really.

    It is not in the metal at all - just the floor piece (which is a piece of crap) but it does the job keeping it secure no matter how hard you yank your car back and forth.

    Lockwashers, plus nuts, plus L-brackets -
