Default spl gains from bolting box down??

has anyone done any true testing with bolting,strapping there box down?

I'm only testing with 1400 watts at the moment but the box jumps around like crazy.

I have not found my box placement yet or I would bolt it down or something but i dont want multiple holes every where from the bolts

Sorry, had to do it. Kind of an inside joke.

Yes, you will definitely gain. It's all about energy transfer, if your expending energy on the box (or baffle for that matter) bouncing around, that's less energy that will be available to produce acoustic output. Depending on the size of the box, you could just use velcro to at least keep it stable.

Use multiple straps. One going around the enclosure longitudinally and one perpendicular to that one depending on you have your woofer/port placement. That'll give you an idea on loss from enclosure flex.
Then, if you have something solid and secure to bolt down to, definitely go for it. Because I would hate to have newbs thinking that screwing their enlosure down to the false floor/foam carpet pad trunk well/spare wheel cover will gain them anything lolol. Although I will say, that I have gained several tenths by ratchet strapping the heck out of an enclosure once. But then after using that for proof of concept I simply better braced the enclosure and it performed just as well lol.

Unless your running 1000's of watts, I don't think it would increase spl much. My box is bolted down, either strapped or bolted, should be anyway to prevent movement.
