    amp placement?

    Ok so iv got a2003 Chrysler Sebring lxi.gunna have two 12s in the trunk with extra batts in the spare tire well.where should I mount my amps? Back seats metal isn't thick enough to hold any weight. So where should I put them other than on the box itself?

    Re: amp placement?

    against the back of the back seats? so in the trunk up against the back side of the seats? If you fold your seats down ever you would have to make sure to leave enough wire to be able to do that.. or how about under the driver and passenger seat? Usually if you dont have power seats there is enough room...



    ref: bought from TurdFergueson2, scottiej, mgbcs, Groundpound4200, fasfocus00, loudcartunez,

    sold to: tipnitty

    Try bolts then if it keeps stripping out.

    But Sebrings have huge trunks don't they? If you have floorspace just throw them on a piece of MDF somewhere in there.

    The sedans have lots of space I think but I just have a coupe so its gunna take my whole trunk for a5 cubic foot box for two mayhems. I'll have to try bolts tho. My last one I mounted it and after I folded the seats up it fell down haha
