Does anyone have any pics of how they anchored their subwoofer in the trunk? I have a 10-inch JL Audio sub in the trunk currently. It's pretty low profile, and it does have some weight to it, but when cornering hard, it always shifts from side to side (guess I can't fight inertia, huh). I have heard that heavy-duty velcro is the way to go, but I was hoping I could see some pictures first. Anyone have any?

Thanks

I used 1 L bracket to anchor each side...I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post in the evening...you just have to be careful of the fuel tank and lines...

Re: Gas milage at 100% torque FWD?

I have a 10" Kicker Comp VR in a small box in the trunk of my WRX. It sits on the drivers side against the back of the seats. I just used one of those elastic tie down straps to hold it in there. There are some holes in the sheetmetal where it can attach to on each side. Looks a bit odd since the strap runs right across the sub, but it holds very well. It has sat through an autocross and about 50K miles without a problem.

Velcro...

I tried to post a pic but it kept telling me I reached the maximum file size. I resized it 3 times and gave up. If you still want to see a pic I can email it to you, just PM me your email address.

:-? :-? I am having the same problem with bu sub. I used haavy duty velcro on the carpet side but the darn thing shifts all around while attached to the carpet. Tomorrow I will try placing some more velcro between the carpet ant the sheetmetal. I will reply again...

Uh, what is that a picture of? I am sorry, could you give a little description of what you are using that for. Thanks

Oh, ok. That would sure make it tough to get the spare out, but it would probably eliminate the noise it makes over bumps.

see this thread. the gas tank is under the rear passanger seats. as long as you're aft of the back seat by about 8-10 inches, you should be fine. (it's hard to tell from you pic where you drilled).

Think it'll tip out on hard acceleration?
nope have had this configuration for quite som time and no issues have quite a heavy sub but the mounting board is .75 inches so the lip where the sub sits in is quite high.

and reaching the spare is not hard take the sub out and then just lift the board, I have pull straps

Sounds good.... It's hard to tell how thick it is, but I'm sure it depends on the weight distribution in your box too.

Anyway, it looks like a good way to go.... but how heavy is that piece of wood?
