How to secure Visual Ice sub box in trunk?

I bought a used Visual Ice box for my car and it has come lose twice during spirited driving.

What do people with this box do to secure it? I had hoped that the weight of the sub and the box would keep it in place, but sadly that is not the case. I'm wondering if I should switch to a MusicarNW box as I can't have my sub flying around in the trunk when I want to play a bit.

Suggestions welcome

You'll want to grab some strong velco. I have the musicar and I needed that to secure it.

Interesting. Did you stick one side on the trunk liner? I'm not sure if the adhesive would stick well to the fabric.

They come with a little kit you can use to secure them...a couple of screws and a strap I think. I didn't use it and mine stays in place just fine. I put a piece of hook velcro on the back and it sticks to the trunk liner.

It stuck right to the fabric for me.

Our designs always use physical brackets. Our Phantom subwoofer for the F22/F87 has been stalled for a while, but as it stands the conceptual design intent was to utilize the two factory mounting holes that you can see below. You may be able to replicate something similar. Should be pretty easy on the F22/F87, most of our Phantom subs end up quite a bit more complicated (F30/F80 and F36 shown at the end).
