ZenClosure Question

Those of you with the ZenClosure, how did you fasten the box so that it doesn't slide around? Or does it come with some kind of bracket or anything?

It's a tight fit so it doesn't need to be bolted in. The zenclosures box is very good I'm sure you'll like it.

I have this enclosure with two 12" JL's and it has never slid around.

I have a zenclosures box with a single 12 in it and I needed to secure it.

I just used L brackets from home depot. Just screw into the floor but make sure there is no module under the screw.

Mine sit still without securing. I was recently rearended and the box finally shifted a little. You will be fine without securing.

BTW, OP if you order the box for a single sub make sure you have them adjust the internal volume for the sub.

I forgot to tell them this and I ended up have 1.87cu ft for my type-R....it's suppose to be run between .9 and 1.5 (I think) cuft.

Really you had to secure it for me it was such a tight fit that it wouldn't budge without some effort. Even with my spirited driving it would not budge. Did you get it with or without the amp cutout I doubt it makes a difference but I got it with the amp cutout under the box.

Well I don't know if you have a ski pass opening or not but when I push the enclosure right up against the opening and "seal" it off, my sub sounds quieter.

I left about a 1/2in gap in between the rear seats and the enclosure. Maybe this is why it fell back under hard acceleration.

I'm getting a signal from the stock L7 amp and feeding that to a JL 500/1 which is pushing my Type-R.

Ok that could be why I dont have a ski pass so I have it pushed all the way back.

Same here I tapped into the sub channels off the stock l7 amp using a line output convertor I have a type r hooked up to a PDX m12.

I am doing the same thing. I tapped the L7 amp and ran my amp from there.
