You Need To Protect Your Subs!

I have a 12' JL audio sub in my trunk, and the box is carpeted- and the amp is mounted to the back of the box. Ive read a lot about carpet being a bad idea because if it gets wet it will soak into the box and ruin the wood. Has anyone had a problem with this? How big of a concern is this?

Also, has anyone used some sort of waterproof spray (like the stuff for clothes or camping gear etc) on the carpeted box with any success?

Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated!

Cut it and start pulling.. It should peel off.

When I ever get around to building my box, I'll probably spray it or roll it with the bedliner then carpet over that..
