Are you guys just using a High-Low line converter, or did you tap into the line level inputs? (If so, could you provide more info?)
I use 2 adjustable bungee cords and hook the cords up to the metal clips which are for the cargo net. One cord goes over the top and the other goes in front below the sub.
Never moves now.
I was hoping for more of a subtle solution, but don't feel like drilling into the trunk either.
I guess that's the easiest way to tie it down.
Thanks for the tip.
Did you also get yours from Target?
Thanks again for your help, Scott.Yup, the 2 cords I bought from Target. They came in a little plastic box and were around $5 I think.
Well, the bungee cord has tension of itself, so fastening would be easier.What is the benefit of using a bungee cord, wouldn't static rope of some kind be better for holding it in place?
I've always had a box in the back and it always bothered me.
I've solved that problem this way
I have a standard size toolbox that is dedicated to the trunk. I have it anchored by Velcro. I went to walmart and bought some Velcro squares (2"x4") and put the soft side on the rubber cargo tray and the hard side on the bottom of the tool box. It came with 4 squares but I only used 1.
The tool box never comes out so its not a pain in the ass to take it out every now and again... it works really good and you don't see the velcro at all. Just make sure to clean the rubber mat area first to get any oils off it. The velcro I bought was pretty heavy duty. It would work perfect for your sub.
Did you get a separate carpet for the floor and cut it to fit the trunk, or is it the stock one?
I personally liked the rubber trunk mat that came with the car and wanted to keep it.
Plus, you lose the spare tire.
I've had cars without spares and admit that you rarely get a flat, but still it gives you peace of mind to keep it, IMO.
Thanks for your help, TJPark and Gambler!
Yeah, I also heard from someone that the amp is located in the trunk, but couldn't figure out where the heck it's at.
Looking at the diagram, it looks like it's closer to the passenger's side wheel well, but there's nothing that gives me access to that kind of location.
There was a styrofoam insulation closer to the rear seats and when I removed it, there was a black metal shield with tons of bolt on it.
I started to remove the first bolt, but thought it could be the fuel tank, so I decided not to touch it.
Thanks for the tip. The fuse box is a popular location, but figured it would be more neat to pull something from the trunk area since the cabin and the trunk area is pretty well divided with a metal brace/fixture that's very hard to get through.
I'll look more carefully for gaps and openings between the seat back & trunk space.
But boy, removing the rear seats are a pain.
