I've already got a box housing 2 8s, albeit ~80lbs, from a previous car. Didn't really care so much about previous car and used 1/2" plywood bolted to floor of trunk then screwed box to it. No one could rip it out when I needed to remove it from the wreckage, so I had to buy tools to unbolt it(talk about security)... But I'm not wanting to go that route with this new car. And I want a ported box anyways

are you worried about it breaking the plastic trunk floor?



my box is about 60ish pounds. have had no issues with just putting it on the floor in the trunk.

to hold the box in place use velco. you can buy velco at any hardware store. just put the plastic half of the velco (sticky side down, plastic grip side up) on the trunk floor and drop the box on top. I used 2 8 inch strips. Assuming your box has carpet it will grip the velco very nicely. In fact if i pick up the box the floor lifts up with it.

note i have an LX sedan.

I thought about velcro'ing my amp to the floor so it doesn't move around. I would rather mount it to the back of the left seat when looking at the back of the seats from the trunk. Did anyone do this yet?

My buddy did in his 8th and it works pretty well, he screws it into it, I'd probably Velcro it for that though

On the wifes 2009 Subaru Impreza I mounted the amp to the back of the left seat. The box is a Kicker 10" loaded box. It doesn't move at all and it stays in place. In the 2012 SI Im going to try to get time and do a custom fiberglass/ mdf box for 2 12's. Just depends how much time I allow myself and how much I want to do.

I mounted my amp to the rear seat in my old 2010 8th gen. The back seat had support strips that ran vertical on the seat. I was lucky to have an amp that lined up with 2 vertical strips. Otherwise screw a wood board to the strips than the amp to the board... cover the board in carpet first.

Sweet, easy enough. Thanks!

I mounted two black strips of 1 by material to the back of my seat. I then mounted my amp to the boards. Worked like a charm.
