    Line a box with pool noodles. Fill any exces area with noodles/cardboard to prevent the motor from sliding around.

    #1 way to ship it and fairly inexpensive.

    The foam isn't a bad idea just make sure you at least double bag the motor first so no foam gets to it.

    Never ship amps or subs flate rate. No where near enough space for the correct and best packaging.
