    Is it ok to mount amps to a sub box

    Is it ok " a guy said it might vibrate the amps and cause problems " is that true and if it is can I isolate them some how? Im short on space so this is my best option. thanks Jason

    Should be avoided if at all possible.

    Yes, bad idea, would you put a baby on top of a subwoofer?
    Why would you try to put an amp there lol.

    I always just mount mine to the back of my back seats. Takes up no space and reduces vibrations more than if you were to mount it right on the box.

    Re: Is it ok to mount amps to a sub box

    Ok so I guess its not a good Idea. I dont have much space and I want to see my amps when they are mounted " i dont want under my seat " maybe I can make a new rear panel and have them in there or maybe I could make some sort of false wall around the sub box that doent touch it? I am going to run 2 8" or 1 12" in the back of my 88 mazda cab plus and I have to keep the seat for my kids to go to shows with me. I have a 250 hcca for my subs its abou 22" long then I have a 425 hcca about 24" l;ong or I can run 2 225 hcca I think they are about 12" long I know I could do a 225 on each side then find a way to mount the 250 in front of box somehow. thanks for the help.
