    How do you ship a sub woofer and amp?

    Just curious how you go about doing it. What shipper you use, what packing material you use, etc.

    Bubble wrap the amp to death.Take extra precautions on the ends of the amp.Extra padding.I've always had the factory boxes on any subs ive shipped.I'm sure someone will chime in with ideas.Just make sure to get plenty of good bubble wrap.They play Rugby with packages at all shipping companies.Just remember to make it tight inside the box.(oh man)

    dont use packing peanuts or packing paper, bubble wrap it like its preparing to go to medieval warfare. Spam "Fragile" on the box, probably not gonna help at all but there might be some shipping company workers that actually care, but who knows.

    I have used packing peanuts successfully just wrap the amp in plastic first.
