Default Basstube setup gone wrong!

guys, i have posted the pics of the basstube i have installed in the boot. now the problem i am facing is the tube is just kept in the boot without any support or hold. so the result is that while on the move, the tube rolls left and right and also forward and backward during acceleration and braking! due to this the wiring gets loose and twice it has got disconnected.
so can you guys tell me how can i fix the tube in one place? any simple suggestions?
note:
1) the tube should be in the current position as in the first pic, that is, with both the seats unfolded/down. so i cant place it under the jump seats as the seats wont unfold then.
2) the tube cant be placed longitudinally as again both the seats wont unfold.

secondly, i am just curious to know that why are basstubes not as popular as subwoofers? what are the pros and cons of a basstube? this is just for my knowledge.

AFAIRC, the JBL tube comes with a belt (velcrow types) to keep the tube in place.. high time consider changing your installer!

yes, i was anyways considering to avoid that place! but first i have to meet him to source the belts... will it cost me extra and will they have to drill the side panel to mount the belt support?

the belt comes as a package with the tube..dont pay extra either for the belt or installation. Yes, he might want to make a hole or two to secure the belt.
