    I had the same problem. I just bought 2 small hinges from home depot and screwed one side to the sub box and the other side to the wood/board that covers the spare tire. I only needed to put one hinge on the front side of the sub box and one on the side. I used small screws (less than 1/2 in) and it doesnt move around anymore.

    Yeah I was thinking along the same lines but I took some of the rubber undercoating/sound eliminator and sprayed my spare wheel well then then both sides of the cardboard and a checkerboard pattern on the bottom of the mat. The mat doesnt slide when i move my amps this sat I'm going to spray the bottom of the speaker box and hoepfully it wont slide anymore either

    Probably won't do jack for a speaker box, but maybe it'll help with your other audio goods;I put two little loops on the bottom of my new 24lb sub amp that for some reason has no mounting holes or brackets, and it's still stuck solid to my amp rack even after a full week of spirited driving.

    Given it's only a bonneville doing that driving, but who knows, it certainly has *just a bit* more body roll than a rex

    I used a total of 4 bungee cords to secure my box. It does not slide forward or backward anymore. It does occasionally hit the side of the trunk. But doesn't cause any damage to the car or the box so its acceptable to me. Plus it only cost about $3 dollars to fix and I don't have to unscrew anything if I want to take the box out!

    I stapled some velcro to the bottom of my sub and it works awesome. No sliding and it comes off easily. Just something else to try if that doesn't work.

    Well to remedy that get the rubberized undercoaitng(dulpicolr walmart or autozone) and spray both sides of the wheel well cover. my mat doesnt slide around anymore just the box. After spraying the underside of the box I expect it to not slid around either

    Sorry, I forgot you have the sedan with a carpet in the trunk. My wagon doesn't have a carpet and it works just fine.
