    Where Did You Mount Your Amp?

    Hey guys! What's going on?

    Alright, I am going to be installing my first sub and amp in a little less than a month. I am still trying to figure out where to mount my amp. On the trunk floor, on the back seat, on the box, somewhere else...

    I was wondering,

    Where did you mount your amp and why?

    I mounted my amp on the back of the seat. Because it folds down and it looks kewl.

    I've always mounted mine on the back of the seat/front of trunk. My car's haven't had fold down seats....but it's nice looking and out of the way up there

    Re: Where Did You Mount Your Amp?

    So you just mount right on the back of the rear seat? Do you keep the seat folded down, or do you put the seat back up .....

    I heard it was bad to mount your amp directly on the box, because it'll shake the **** out of it and could **** things up.

    Re: Where Did You Mount Your Amp?

    i have my amps in an enclosure, /w some plexi glass so you can see the amps, and the sub box sits on top of them, the enclosure barely fits over the amps, so they dont really move much. kinda hides the wires that way too, so its pretty nice

    On the side walls...because I want to be able to remove the sub enclosure without re-installing the amps, there's an excellent ground plane, and I don't have any rear seats to use.

    Re: Where Did You Mount Your Amp?

    As a random side note... If I were to mount my amp on the back of my rear seats....

    Would there be any difference in sound if I kept the seat with the amp mounted on it folded down vs up in the regular position? (I guess basically having an opening to my trunk vs having it sealed off...)
