Angry Trunk slipping problems

I've searched but can't find the answer to what I'm looking for so I'll give it a shot here. I have a sub in my trunk but also use it for my book bag etc. on the way to school (02 wrx sedan). But the carpet in the trunk isn't stuck down at all or durable in the least, so I open the trunk to find my sub not where it was, and my carpet scrunched up in a corner. Does anybody know where to find a durable rubber mat for the trunk or atleast a solution to stop it sliding. I tried velcro but it did nothing, they came off after 2 days. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Craig

I got one from
http://www.weathertech.com/

It was one of those generic trunk mats with general outlines for you to trim to fit individual trunks. It's very heavy duty and does a good job keeping liquid from spilling off the mat. Not inexpensive though. About US$100 iirc.

You could just glue it to the spare-tire cover.

Put a L bracket on the sub box and zip tie it onto the trunk floor.

Just in case you need to use the spare, cut the zip ties and you're set.

i got some velcro tape and put it between the particle board and the felt cover on top...just use about 4 pieces in different areas, and it will hold everything down real nice. you can even put one between your sub and the felt to keep it from sliding on top if its still a problem.

Have had this for more than 2 years now. Imho it's good for carrying dirty & wet items. The surface also minimizes cargo sliding when used in normal driving.

I should reiterate the fact that it is heavy.
