if you make the box so big you have to take it apart to get it out it wont get stolen

I need to figure something out to.. Right now I have my back seat locked when I leave the car and my little storage area that has the trunk button is locked. Although it feels like I can just pull it open and the lock with just break. Don't wanna try. Its not enough lol..

run threaded rod from inside the box to under the trunk floor and hold it in that way with nuts on both end. similar to bracing it but from the bottom. or bolt some angle iron on it and hold it in that way. that way you can unbolt it when you need too.

Alarm is best.
Trying to keep the box secure will just end up with a frustrated thief putting a screwdriver through your woofers.
I bought a nice alarm for $40 and installed it my self, it was not that hard.
their is a website with the wiring diagram and wire locations for almost every car the12volt.com

i was thinking making a tight cable over the top and around the side, and cable it to a support that is on the back of one of the chairs

cable can be cut. angle iron through the floorboard is your best bet

no pictures of it cause i never took any of my old car. took some angle iron at the bottom wedged it in from the bottom of the box and drilled it down into the trunk floor. make it to where it cant move, and even if someone tried tilting it it shouldnt be able to flip up with the lip on the angle iron

honestly if someone takes it, its going to be some highschool kid with no equipment , if anything a screw driver, i feel a cable will be okay for now

He wants to avoid getting it stolen does he not? Those are some ways to help, everybody else already covered bolting it down, no need for me to restate all the same stuff everyone else just did.

the title says "best way to secure a box? ( From getting stolen )" securing the box from getting stolen. i understand that the link provides a bunch of other stuff to not get your gear stolen, but from what i read it doesnt go over keeping your box bolted/welded/whatever else you can think of. if it does i apologize then. so if the link goes over everything other then securing the box, what good does it prove to answer the OPs original question?

I don't know if your back seats fold down or not... Mine don't fold in my Caprice so I removed the seats and used heavy duty hinges to mount the box to the floor of the trunk. The hinges are behind the box and there's no way to access them without taking out/destroying the back seat.

You could try something like that.

something similar to this is exactly what i was talking about. except hinges it would be a long piece of angle iron that went entirely across the box.

That's with my backrest of the backseat removed. If you sat in front and turned around, that's what you'd see. The hinges are on the back of the box. With the trunk open, you don't see the hinges at all. You can't even reach behind the box to touch them. I'd get better pics bu I don't want to rip out my back seat just for pics. I may have a couple extra in my build log if you want to check that out.

I built a false floor thats bolted in the same place the rear seats were and the box is screwed to that with like 50 3 inch long wood screws straight into the 2x4 false floor. Plus it takes ATLEAST 3 people to pick up just the box so its pretty secure imo. 2% tint also helps out on the security side

Id use Hasp with American locks.There are some double hasp that are pretty good, and you can run bolts through the box on the inside/outside, and same with the 1/2 portion of the hasp to the vehicle,do all 4corners, or one one each side, and lock it up? Unlock it, and take the box out, put it back in and lock it back up.I use those double hasp on my tool box in the bed of my truck with some boxed in American locks.May have to go to a local Key shop, or Locksmith to get the good hasp, and locks.My brother is a locksmith:D Got a discount.I use the Hex deck screws to secure my woofers down or the deep square head Or, I may mix them as well, just to Pi$$ those lookers off..LOL
