I don’t really know much about boxsprings but maybe look online for durable ones or ones made differently? How often are you having sex on the bed? Have you thought about maybe trying different areas in your home to have sex to give the boxspring a break?

mel2 :  what size is the bed? And do you have a center support beam? We added a couple extra slats on the bedframe to support the boxspring and mattress and haven’t had any problems since.

Maybe you just got a bum one? I mean, hubs and I weigh similar amounts and have a fair amount of sex and have not broken our box spring in 10 years. Maybe you just got a dud.

Box springs are generally built to last upwards of 10 years. How is your box spring and mattress supported? If there is a noticeable dip, I would assume it’s a support problem not a box spring problem. You may need to buy a few boards cut to the width of your bed frame to maximize stability.

Try a metal one.  You can get them on amazon and they’re actually awesome if you ever move because you can break them down and then re-assemble them.

Happened to us as well and we werent doing anything crazy either. I was living at home for a bit shortly before we were engaged when it happened and my now hubby was like “btw, we broke chimpy24’s box spring” as he left the house as my mom was coming in the door. My mom cracked up when she realized what he said as he went and got in his car..lol. Mattress store when I went to get a new one said to make sure we had a good frame to support it after i had to explain why I was buying just a boxspring so I got one with extra cross braces.  It’s now in our guest room. When we bought our king bed, we made sure to spend extra to get a good frame with extra supports.

You can absolutely put a piece of plywood under your mattress on top of the box spring. I do it because I like a really firm bed!

Having a really good thick dense mattress is important too. If it’s squishy or flimsy or cheap it’ll be more likely to get bounced through and get down to the box spring.

mel2 :   we are both bodybuilders. I’m 150 he’s 250. We opted for a platform bed. It’s a solid platform. We have jiggled some screws loose in the last 18 months and it’s noisy but holding up!!
