Or mounting it upside down would probably help a lot too. Sub was a downfiring 10" and was a few inches off the floor. Box was coated with roll-on bedliner so it didn't soak up any water.

Keep in mind those of you that use carpeted boxes...if you get them wet enough they'll soak up water and fall apart. I highly recommend using bedliner as a coating.

I used Herculiner, only 1 coat, putting on my second later. Its not thick at all, which scares me.

Coasttrash are you worried that your amp might over heat?

4X4-TJ I have 2 10' subs in a box, so they ain't goin anywhere. They are also Marine grade, so water resistant. And after sitting through the rain over night, I will say this TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!!!

Do you guys pull the sub when trailing? Or do you do something to protect it from the elements whether trailing or topless?
I have a 8" amplified bass tube strapped in the back of mine. When I'm running topless and or trailing, I keep a small tarp handy that I can cover it up from rain / mud / water overspray. Not that I've had to use it due to winter and I've been running with my top on, but I'm confident that it will do the trick when the time comes.
