Is anyone who's a "regular" in this section actually using the boot ?

I have got to hand it to Emperors Carpentry and woodwork. Today We managed to extricate my sub from the wreckage of my car's rear end, and everything around it was broken or bent - the rear hatch floor and wall were crushed from impact, the rear seats, and despite bearing so much impact from all sides, the sub box is still in one piece!

just need to remove the shards of glass from the carpet finish

Ouch! That was bad. Commiserations, greenie. By grace of God nothing happened to you and your father. Damages are reparable, and don't fret about what the insurance won't pay - at least the major replacements will be covered, no.

The sub, more than due to good carpentry, was saved because it was not rigidly fixed. It must have just shifted on impact, instead of having to buckle like the seat. Hope the amp and all are safe. Take them out before giving for repairs.
