does anyone see any ideas of what i could do for a really nice amp rack in this situation? i want to show it off but not just screwed to the box like i have it now.

i have pretty much zero skill with fiberglass so thats kinda out of the question.

i'm open to any and all suggestions though.

what about over top of the sub like 6 inches...floating amp rack possibly. i dont think that would have any effect on the sub performance correct me if i am wrong:crazy:

HMMMM.....are you using the factory seat bolt for you ground??? That's a NO NO! LOL Anyway.....you could make an amp rack on the front of the box. Here is something I did a while back.

i think u should get rid of that rear seat and make it custom.. although i like where it is at now cause its less for the robbers to see.

heres a quick sketch of my idea...i dunno might look cool if done right. maybe light it up under the rack. reason for the orange is to make it easier to see

i like that. a lot. except i'd face the amp more forward instead of straight up.

with some nice matching blue neons like the hifonics logo.

yea i did have it sloped forward but it sure doesnt look like it haha
i think it would look wicked with the blue neon. especially if the rack was smoked plexi or something

ya thats what i was thinking. do it all plexiglass and possibly a custom decal that had Fi or Hifonics on it that'd light up.

idk it just seems like it would look kinda tacky.

i see what you're saying but the amp would be reflecting off the sub if i did that.

take out the backseat.........you all ready can't use it. Just store it in your garage or somethin. (like i did!!! check sig)

p.s. not meanin to jack your thread but if he were to do a floating amp rack above the subs where would he ground it at? I've been contemplating this myself but i couldn't find a good ground point.

any insight on that grounding point?? I've seen in "truckin" where they mount amps on the roof, where do people ground their amps when they do somethin like this??

to the roof i would assume..

but you make a good point about the floating amp idea...im not sure where you would ground it.
i would definatly just take the back seat out
