Now let me start by asking you, have you made a suitable box for your subwoofer. If not, you can simply buy it from the market. There are boxes that are designed in a way to help produce powerful bass. Fortunately, I have already written an article about subwoofers box designs for deep bass.
Mounting Subwoofer with Rope and Screws
You can secure a subwoofer box in the trunk by using screws and hooks. You will need to fix hooks on either side of the subwoofer box, make some bracket fix on the top. Get two small screws and fix them on the side of the box, these will go right through the hinge into the speaker box. you don’t want to go deep.
Mount the hinge, right there at the bottom. That way, it will not interfere much with wires. This way your carpet will be secured. The rope will move along the hooks and hinge, it will mount the subwoofer box properly. With this method, you will not need to worry about the box during traveling.
Mounting Subwoofer with Strips
You will need to place the subwoofer on the floor of the trunk, you can use stripes and fix them at the sides of the subwoofers and this will help fix the subwoofer box. Stripes will move from the top of the box and you can tie it with the end. I have seen many drivers using this method to properly mount the subwoofer box.
Mounting Subwoofer with Wood Plates
Now, this is interesting, for this you will need properly sized wooden plates. Place the wooden structure on the floor of the trunk, secure it with screws. I suggest going with a 1.5-inch screw, these will secure the wooden structure properly. You must check the bottom of the car, you don’t want to drill over the gas tank. Check it and then place the wooden structure on the proper side of the trunk.
Once the base is prepared, just mount the subwoofer box properly over it and you are good to go. The subwoofer box will not slide from its place as the wooden structure will not move an inch.
