These plastic hooks may seem normal but they have a lot of strength and they will fix and properly fix speakers in car trunk.

  • Attachment with trunk’s roof

You can also attach the speaker with trunk roof by help on any hook, you do not have to go deep at all, just fix the speaker with the trunk roof strongly. You can also use plastic or other strong hooks available in the market. I recommend using the hooks that will be attached to trunk rook and secure the speakers in car trunk.

  • Use strips or wood plates

If you found the installation of speakers in roof difficult than simply fix it on the base of the trunk using strips or wooden plates. While using wooden plates, secure it by using the screws and it is just simple. Wooden plates are fixed at the floor of the trunk and you can easily fix the speakers on these wooden plates. This is one of my favorte method to install speakers in car trunk.

After properly placing, adjusting and fixing the speaker ( proper installation ), you need to do to the volume settings. Adjust the volume, not very high not too low. Set the volume in the middle ranges, you can also adjust it as you like the most. Your speaker is connected with your car’s electric system, you just have to tune the sound with buttons or knobs.

After adjusting the volume, you are done. All the setup is complete. Turn on the speakers and enjoy as you have now properly installed the speakers in the trunk.
