Sub-box cushioning.

250 I bought has a sub-box behind the back seat. Since the system is already in place I'm either going to leave the sub or replace it. I'd like the space to store some other items.

But, if I keep the original box I need to cushion it somehow. It makes a lot of noise (clunking around) when I hit bumps. Any suggestions on what to put around it? It's pretty tight when putting the back part of the seat up but must be a little loose once the seat is locked in place.

It's been a while since I've been into aftermarket sound systems and wouldn't normally go that route now. Thinking that replacing it with a Bazooka (am I dating myself) would free up some space.

Thoughts on either??

This one isn't mounted. It just sits in the space behind the back seat.

Bazooka

New to the site, first post. Bazooka is a hard cab to beat, I have had JL-A, Infinity, Fosgate, MTX. I find myself going back to the Bazooka, (2) 8" & (2) 6.5" on a Fosgate 800RMS 4 channel. Hits pretty hard but not too deep like my JL 12's. The tone on the ported Bazooka's can't be beat, hope this helps......

If it were me id go to lowes and buy some of their outdoor carpet and some 3m adhesive spray and carpet the box and it should reduce any rattling. If the space between the box and seat is substantil and carpet dosent make it a tight fit I would find some way to shim it in if you want to leave it.
