I need to fix my sub box down, does anyone know what is under the carpeted step in the cab of a BF Ute?

Are you talking about the hump that runs parallel with the length of the car and runs underneath the centre console? If so that's your tail shaft tunnel. So underneath will be your tailshaft.

If you need to fix it to the floor, just use velcro on the carpet, seems to work pretty well on some I have seen.

I was referring more so to the section either side of the section you mentioned. The box is quite heavy so i wanted to bolt it down rather than use velcro, so i don't particularly want to belt through into anything that will cause any damage to the car...

Mine is held in with wide velcro strips on the back and on the base of the sub box.
The velcro will work, just make sure you use wide strips.

yea velcro will work. ofcourse it is a heavy box that will do damage when you go sideways as hell. but you only need somthin to stop it from getting that initial bit of movement.
