    Call an upholstery shop for the big velcro.

    I used my statics book. Just placed it between the empty space and it kept it from sliding around :o

    Velcro works great. I got some stuff at walmart that is about 2.5 inches wide. and the glue on it is like rubber cement. Held the sub in my old car for almost 2 years.

    I replaced my dinky cardboard trunk board with .5 MDF using the old one as a cut out. But I made it a bit shorter so I can still have full access to my spare without moving the box. And then I used L- brackets to secure the box onto that board.
