    Icon14 tri-amp rack monday build *pics inside*

    for the past year, ive been having all 3 of my amps on top of my back seats folded down, it looked like piss and i couldnt use my back seats, well today i got some motivation and decided to build a rack. Its pretty simple, but i think will turn out good.
    Let me know what you guys think, hopefully will finish today before work.

    the easy part was to brace from the bottom, but not so much the top, so i made a triangle support that fits behinds the seats angle so it will stand supported

    doubling the washers for the speaker amp because US acoustics' amps have horrible mounting feet.
    The AQ amps will be mounted one flipped around to have them easily strapped.

    IT FITS PERFECTLY, im glad it turned out right. the us acoustics amp on the back side is a little slanted, but wont matter with a big ssub box in front of it.

    Wont have enough time to wire it up, but will do it tommorow. its simple, but does what it needed to. very happy with it.

    I need to get some drop pieces of mdf from the home depot, the weather around here is hit/miss right now it's real windy and rather warm, once I get a good free day I need to re situate my mc2000d and my T600.2 right now they look like there just laying there tossed in but there bolted down, but straight was not an option in a corolla trunk so I'm going to go dual layer

    I'm right there with ya.... I got some nice weather a month ago and it was exactly what I needed to finally get my amps mounted and have my trunk cleaned up. It feels so much nicer once you're done.

    Not to sound like a jerk, just a little critique....

    Mount both amps facing the same direction and drill holes to run your cables through the mounting board. That way you can strap your amps, etc and still have them close together and facing the right direction. It'll also make a cleaner look. A pack of grommets can be bought at Harbor Freight/ebay for cheap if you wanna make it look really clean.

    '12 Nissan Altima - Bone Stock - Sounds good, but adding subs soon.

    No problem. Thanks! I was going to but on then other side is the us acoustics amp that takes up 21" of my available 37" I wanted to but no way to run the wire through the other side. With the seats being up a majority of time I was more concerned with functionality vs looks
