amps are too big for under seat and i can only mount one behind the back seat in the middle running horizontal

trying to figure out a way to run one horizontal and one vertical but its gonna be hard i think

i say mount them were you can have great access to them then build a cover for them so you dont see wires!

well thats the prob i dont really have many places or ways to mount both amps

like the zx1500 i was gonna mount on the back wall and the sides will be right behind the back seats so the wires wont be visible or nothing

but i need a spot for my zx850.4

Could you run them both vertical? How wide and tall is the entire area you're trying to squeeze them into... and what are the dimensions of the amps?

i have 24 inches from bottom to top and 12inches from the wall to the box and i have 16 inches from seat to seat across

only thing i was thinking of doing is running one horizontal where the holes are where i had one mounted and run the other one vertical but i got to figure out a way to make it work

or run both vertical and have the amps facing the seats as in back to back one amp on the passanger side and one on the driver side facing towards the doors

you know what i mean

any chance you could pull off all that plastic along the back wall and then build something in there out of 1/2" mdf or so to mount the amps to that? Should be able to gain a few inches or so behind the seats with the plastic stuff gone and mount them both horizontal along the bottom of the wall or so.

Yea I would have to see it in person, or some better pics to be able to really tell. Its what I ended up doing on my truck though (only 1/2 way along with the amp rack build though). I am just going to have a small portion of metal just below the window that I plan on covering in matching black carpet along with the amp rack. The factory rear wall cover was basically black box carpet molded to fit the back wall.

ok, seriously, you have had ~10 posts in this thread and the only attempt at punctuation was the "period" in the amp model, and it was a very poor attempt at that. is it that hard or time-consuming???

EDIT: I'm not ragging on you or anything, its just rather difficult to decipher your posts....
