So, its that time in my install progress.
I have L brackets or i have threaded inserts. I'm hella nervous about drilling into my sub box because its so pretty but i will follow ya'lls advice.

I have ~700w rms going to the TDX10 in a 1ft³ box
Trunk wall brackets are riveted/#6x3/4" screwed


Options:
Motor vehicle Wood Automotive tire Gas Asphalt

I have different sizes of the threaded inserts as well. This is just an example

Thanks! if you want to get a better look, its in my build thread



Noone has advice as to which would be better? Bolts and inserts into the box or L brackets?

I couldn't think of a better way to word the question

My idea with the inserts was to put them into the box and cut some recesses in the cabinside of my amp wall (1 1/2" thick composite board) and "countersink" the bolt heads.
Or should i run the bolts from inside the subbox into the wall?

Then the question, is there an audible difference between upfiring the sub or shooting it at my trunk lid?

I wanted to secure the box because i do "track" my car....if you get my drift. This also means i can't tuck it into a corner.
If i fire it toward the trunklid it will definitely need to be bolted in because of the weight of the sub.........

I've seen a few people say that this thing hits. I might HAVE to fire it back because i can't pull my rear dash cover. There is a T50 on each side that holds in the rear corner seat belts and the dash. Issue is there is absolutely no room to get anything but a L-shaped torx in there thanks to the rear window being RIGHT THERE. I've been wanting to remove my rear seatbelts ever since i put in the X brace. About to just cut the damn things

@Theslaking did some rough-ups and, call me bougie if you want, but it has a bit too much "industrial" look to it. Plus the shelf has a halfmoon cutout to get as much clearance as possible for the spare tire panel to be removed. The sub is ~25-30lb and the counterweight of the sub firing to the rear would require around a 2 1/2-3" leg (minimum) to hold down the rear of the box.
Its looking like tapping the box is becoming my only choice. I'll wait til i can grab another sheet of birch to remake the box before i start drilling.
