Just curious where people have mounted their amps?

Re: Amp location

I have one Memphis amp mounted on the back of the rear seat and an Alpine amp where the stock amp/woofer was located.

Re: Amp location

I did not get the subwoofer option where was the factory amp located? Also how do you like your alpine amp?

Re: Amp location

Re: Amp location

Rich a couple of questions where did you get your box? how much was it and also what type of lift did you put on your ride I like it.

Thanks Bappy

Re: Amp location

mine sit in a rack with a two shelves. being 24"x9", its hard to put them anywhere else. the rack sits on the cargo area floor under the box. under the seat is ok, but its also a good area for spills and to be kicked and it also accumulates a lot of dust, grime, dirt, etc... i dont like on the back of the rear seat because i dont like to screw into plastic panels. and also, i like a more stationary location. if you fold the seats down a lot, its just a matter of time before something comes loose whether it be a connection or the amp itself. to mount on the side it takes some thought and time to fab up the bracketry. location depends on the size of amp and number of amps.

Re: Amp location

Got this idea from someone else on this forum. I liked it alot that i did the same. It's pretty simple. had to make a bracket to mount the amp. again simple and clean.
