    designing a box for my s10...

    I just started designing a box for my s10, i have a lot of measurements down and ideas drawn up. I am planning to build a box that will cover the lower half of the back wall in my extended cab s10, its gonna hold 2 12" subs and my amp. the only problem is I dont know how i should anchor it down, so it doesnt move or come off the back wall. I wanna keep it right against the backwall to save space and so i can keep my 3rd seat. How do you think i should go about anchoring it down?

    drill into the back wall. theres like an inner skin under the carpet that you can drill into. or bolt it to the floor

    Do you have that bump before your back wall?

    It is more a pain in the a** if trying to put a box in there.

    yea the bump is in the back, not the jack box, the actual height change in the floor. i was planning to build my box around that.
