    Think amps will be ok on back of box?

    Hey guys well im asking your opinion because i have no place to drill my amps into instead of my box...Do you think that a Memphis MCD2500 and a Kicker ZX550.2 would be ok drilled to the back/side of my box...the box pics are in my gallery i believe but idk...thanks all

    what is it going in if your seats fold down and you have the amps in the back it should be fine i dont play it for awhile and then see how hot it gets and find the best place to mount just try to get the best airflow

    i cant put the amps on the back of my seats because my seats haave no solid back to drill into its just stretched fabric thats why i guess it leaves me no other option

    Don't mount to the box... makes for an all-in-one easy to steal package

    What about mounting them to a board in the trunk...I would avoid mounting to the box for a number of reasons...if it gets stolen it ALL goes at once...the vibrations from the sub might lead to the amp breaking before it's time and lastly I wouldn't want to drill more holes in my box even though they can be sealed up again.

    edit: also for heat dissipation I like to mount my amps laying flat and not vertical....heat rises...you don't want the top half of your amp to get all the heat from the bottom half...you want it to rise up off the amp into the heat sink...

    theres no room for a board or anything...my box fills my whole entire trunk and it goes right to my rear seats and about 5 inches from my hatch door and is snug as a bug on both corners no room to fit anything...

    Re: Think amps will be ok on back of box?

    well i had alot of problems with amps just giving up and stop working,
    or going up in smoke.
    they were all mounted to the box.
    since i sterted mounting them somewhere else, i haven't had any problems at all.

    Re: Think amps will be ok on back of box?

    Yeah if it means anything I've been running the same crap legacy bass amp for going on about 10 years now...always mounted flat to a board in the trunk...been in three different cars now...never had a problem with it or any other amp I've ever used in the same way....

    One thing you might consider is using some computer fans with your amp rack if you have to have the amps covered over, at least they would still get ventillated...

    try using velcro if you have carpet in your trunk just take some velcro to the bottom of the amp and place it on the carpet it works good you an also do that to if your box moves or you coulsd velcro it to your box

    For what it's worth, my amp has been mounted vertically to my box for 2 years now without a single hiccup.
