    How do i get my box to stop SHIFTING?!

    I have a fairly large 3 cubic foot box with 2 10" type-rs in it and this thing weights a hefty amount. but the **** thing keeps sliding around in my trunk and the on the one side it keeps ripping the cords out of the terminals on the back. I know this partially due to the fact that i didnt carpet the box yet cause i was to ansty to finish cause of leaving for school. But once i get it carpeted what is a good way to keep that thing PLANTED so i can still have some fun without hearing a huge *** thud in the trunk?????

    Put industrial velcro on the bottom (just one side obviously), use rubber feet from www.partsexpress.com

    x2 on the velcro, thats what I use. Looks clean afterwards and holds on like a hoe to her money.

    There's nothing wrong with that, until it pulls out again. *grin*

    I am planning to use a few L brackets to keep my 2 1^3 boxes planted...I think it will work quite well....might try the velcro idea first though
