Securing a sub box

I've finally installed my components, sub and amp after doing the double DIN.

How have people secured a box in the boot? I'm using a ratchet strap at the moment but would like something nicer.

I'd be interested to know as well... I had Velcro but over time it couldn't hold up against the sharp bends ... Maybe just needs more Velcro

I can't say I've ever had my sub run around in the boot, and it is just sat there, not secured in any way.

I now have this:

Not needed to secure it- although I've not connected it yet, time is something I just don't have currently.

Although for a normal square box I'd rate velcro.

Nice work that fella
Personally I had no use for the wheel well so used that instead

Yep, although not bought from him directly. Made an offer 2nd hand for the whole unit with amp and sub before I realised he builds and sells these.

I was eyeing the wheel well as well when I happened across this one.
