    inverting subs...

    kinda a prob here...
    i tried to invert BOTH of my tens(both magnents sticking out from box)... they sounded great, looked even better...
    question... whenever i had BOTH of the subs inverted backwords, it overweighed the box and made it shift forward and flip over when driving...

    i then continued to put one sub in normal with magnent inside box, and one inverted with magnent out to balance weight... the box still wobbled, but hardly as much


    question is, how the hell do i make it so both of my subs can be inverted... but have the box STAY PUT... and not move and fall over from the weight

    really appreciate it guys, thx

    Bolt the box to the chasis. It'll also make it difficult for someone to steal it, as well.

    Attach that sucker. Think of what will happen to that box if you slam on the brakes really quick

    hopefully...

    And just use some L brackets to bolt the box down, no need to bolt it straight through the wood...

    L brackets are just little L shaped metal brackets, it sometimes has 2 holes on each side and you can just screw in one side to the box and one of the sides to the floor

    L-brackets are just that, L-shaped brackets. They'll have them at your local hardware store. And they go on the outside of the box. One part of the L screws onto the box while the other part of the L screws to the floor.
