False floor for amps, anyone interested?

I'm going to be making a false floor in the rear hatch area for my 3 door SVT soon and I am curious to see if anyone is interested in buying an assembled unit or a kit with instructions for one like mine?

I'm going to use MDF, and it will cover the whole rear hatch area behind the rear seats. It will only raise up the floor by 2-3".
Spare tire will still be accessible, seats will be fold able, and the area will be able to house an amp for my subwoofer as well as a 4 channel for the door speakers.

The finished product will be a level area in the rear with hidden amplifiers.


Once I make this, I will have plans for it so I figure why not use this as an opportunity? Would anyone be interested in purchasing a assembled or a cut (but not assembled) kit type setup? I plan on posting the plans on here for you handy guys and gals.


There's room for modifications as well (plexiglass floor to see amps, or a small toolbox area? who knows)

I was going to do a false floor on my build as well, except I ran into over-heating issues with the amp just sitting under a front seat. Id suspect if you have a strong amp, you may need to build in some fans for proper air-flow to keep your amp cool.

You can use 2x4's and cut them in lengths that will allow spaces for venting along the edges of said amp rack.

Amps arent just for subs. I have an amp specifically just to power my speakers.


But I would assume that you would put the sub in a box somewhere inside the car. Just a thought :-P
