I have a big twin-12" subwoofer box in the trunk. How do you keep it from bouncing around back there?

Bolt the box down. A few L brackets and bolts should do it

mine were always heavy enough to weigh themselves down, but they shift or slide just a lil bit

so i go to wal-mart and buy some adhesive velcro strips, one side is the hook the other side loops, i usually only use the hooks since either the box is carpeted or the trunk is carpeted, stick the velcro somewhere and make sure it holds, that should help some

velcro will hold them
however if you bolt them down and someone steals them
your insurance co will cover them if stolen!

Velco = bad idea.... 100lb loaded box > velcro. Shit my 60lb batteries>industrial velcro. I use L brackets and they get the job done, they are like 6 for $2 at home depot.

yea but then you gotta drill into the car, screw that. if your subs are positioned well in the first place they wont slide around, ive NEVER EVER (even before velcro) had a sub box move more than 2 inches from where it was and when it did it was sideways from taking a big curve.

nationwide will cover up to 1500 of customized unlisted equipment anyways and $30 per $500covg will get you more coverage with receipts for the rest

Sometimes you have to pay to play. If you drill holes i just recommend you atleast prime the spot you drilled. velcro might not always work, depending how you want the box positioned for the right sound coverage.

In my old cars I always shaped a face board that once carpeted had to be tapped into place with a rubber mallet to hold everything in place and add some asthetics to the trunk space.
