How did you secure your sub box?

Custom 10"sub box just came in today, it goes on the side wall of the passenger side. I was wondering what would be a good way to secure it and if possible still able to access the spare tire.,

I used to use Velcro when I had my 3.7

They still slid around when you gunned it, but I didn't have the box that fits in the corner

Did you used industrial grade velcro? from what im reading it should do the trick and it being in a corner should also help im guessing, wonder if ill have problems with hard lefts.

I used some of the wood that I used to make my box and covered it in the same material as the stuff that's in the trunk and made a piece 6" wide that runs from the box on passenger side to driver side that could be easily removed. You really don't even notice it, it's 3/4" thick and has held the box in place with no movement at all.

I have access to my spare as soon as I move the pics of wood that goes across to hold the box in place.

I have 2 12's with a custom box that fit in the rear hump space and I had this problem for over a year. I came up with a solution similar to this guy. I just stuck a thick piece of wood between the sub and front end of the trunk. That sub is not moving, it would have to snap the wood in half to do so. Whenever you want to reach your spare, just take the wood out and your golden.

They didnt sell these on ebay when I got my subs installed in the V6, but this is what I would have liked to put them in, or a custom fiberglass box that deletes the rear seats. Subs dont sound as good in the trunk of a car as compared to the cabin

I'm still looking for a box for mine. I had a Fosgate P2D4-10 in a small sealed box. Turns out it wasn't happy in there and after almost two years it burned the coil on the sub and took out the Fosgate P300x1 amp too.

I went up to a Fosgate P400x1 amp and a P3D4-10.

I did find a guy online who I'll build a box to my specs which will fit up in the front of the trunk with 3/4" and 1" mdf for under $300 shipped to my door. I did go to one of our local audio stores who have been around for over 20 years and their estimate was $408 for basically the same box. I'd build it myself but the space in the front of the trunk is a funky shape and I don't feel like jacking around with all the angles.

Just get some thick cardboard and start building a mock box. Later you can use them as a template to build the actual box. That's my plan when I build one.
