    nice job.

    on the back of the rear seats would be fine, but under the front seats would be good b/c its more secure. you could also make a fiberglass amp rack to match the other side.

    Thanks guys!! Umm regarding the seats...I cant mount them under the front..not enought room and the back seats are split fold down...Plus that 600.2 amp is 25 inches long...dont really have room to put it under any seat or back of seats...also the battery is in that back right location under the black plastic cover thing..

    whatever you think is best. personally, i think it would look cool to have it opposite of your sub at an angle.

    ya i think i want them kinda opposite so it has kind of a balanced effect....maybe just twist them sideways kinda and keep them to the rightside...

    i would put it just like you have the sub. glass an amp rack on the opposite side just like the others said.

    and thats one hell of an install, looks great.

    quick question.

    how hard was carpeting the fiberglass. i would think the carpet would fold and wrinkle since its not a flat surface.
