    Icon32 How do people here mount their SUB BOX in the rear of vehicle?

    I have a 10" IDQ 0.60 sub box that I would like to mount in my Escape SUV. It's a simple sealed box with the sub driver facing the rear of the liftgate. Should be simple right?

    Well, I'd like to take it out easily in case I need to carry something big. How should I go about this? What type of hardware would I need to keep the sub in one place in the trunk (without the box sliding around), then quickly remove it if the situation arises?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    L-bracket that you can pick up at any hardware store. Simple to remove; just keep a screwdriver in your truck with you. Shouldn't take more than 2 minutes tops to unscrew a couple screws and remove the box.

    Thats what I use... and if you put them right in the back of the box... no one can see them and the install still looks nice

    screw l brackets.

    i got 4 simple hinges with removable pins.

    easy to remove without a electric screwdriver and you dont have to worry about lining up holes you can't see...

    You need to remember that if you wreck your car that box will fly around the interior like crazy. I saw a wreck once where a small tool box killed one of the passengers in a suv. A sub enclosure is big and heavy enough to do this. I posted about this here once before and was ignored, but maybe you will hear me. Bolt or strap that thing down. It might not look as good as velcro, but it also might save someone you know from getting thier head torn off. (climbs down off of soapbox)

    Do not use velcro. Yes I know about 'industrial' velcro, Ive used it on machines I design for work (mechanical engineer). That is not what velcro is designed to do. If you think it will hold onto that enclosure in any sort of serious accident, you are wrong. I know if I rear-ended someone, last thing Id want is my speaker box kissing the back of my head.

    Use a solid mechanical connection, like screws, bolts or a stud and wing-nut setup (for quick disconnect). If you use velcro, even industrial, you are asking for trouble. Any installer that recommends it should be fired on the spot, period.

    ^x 1000


    I am waiting to hear about the first audio shop sued out of business (the maker of the products will probably be named as well) from an accident victim hurt or killed by flying subwoofers.

    Re: How do people here mount their SUB BOX in the rear of vehicle?

    I definitely was not thinking about Velco.

    I think the best would be the L brackets with screws, bolts, and wing nuts. And of course I'll be straping it down for saftey, albeith with provisions to remove the box if needed.

    Thanks all the quick responses guys.

    If the only thing holding your box in place is that 95lbs, think again. Seriously, the heavier your box, the heavier the blunt object will be that crushes your head in what could have been an otherwise minor fender bender. *shrug* We all take chances, that's your guys' call. Just making sure you realize its a risk.
