    Is it OK to hide an amp inside a sealed box?

    Just what the title says, if i am really tight for space can an amp go inside the box of the subs?

    have fun tweaking it + running all the wires in the box would be a ***** too, leaves too much of a chance for an air leak.

    and if you're looking for saving space the amp would take away some of the internal airspace so you'd be losing in the end. If it's an elcamino it has a bench seat so just put the amp under the seat.

    Umm do not do this. The amp will over heat.

    If you don't have an amp already, buy a PDX. They fit anywhere.
