^^ best way to do it, unless you want to build a custom setup outta fiberglass or something.

Back seats is the best place I think. I've got 3 amps there.

I used 12mm MDF and screw them to the seats then put some carpet on it. After that screw the amps on the MDF using short screw (maybe the ones that come with the amp). Be careful not to reach the back seat metal.

Cable mess have been rearranged. [wiggle]

I prefer the sides so you can lay the seat down and not worry about the amp/s.

Here's my setup....it's kinda like Focusincali's with the amp mounted on the side so the seats can fold down (gotta fit my skiing crap in there....).

^^^^I built the box. The back of it is made of fiberglass with a chicken wire frame and matches the panel on the inside of the hatch. The magnet for the sub sits in that indent on the left side of the hatch. The front half of the box is made out of MDF, and then coverend it in carpet.

It took a long time to build, but I'm happy with the results and it sounds great.

thats exactly what I wanted to do with my amp, but my amp is monsterous and wont fit. So I have to figure out where I want it mounted since my system is going in on Tuesday.

I don't think my amp would fit there either, not to mention the indent seemed like a perfect place for the sub's magnet.

Mount your amp under your driver or passengers seat like I did. It will fit w/14" x d/19"x h/3". I had enough room to fit a 1 farad capacitor too. Plus your underseat vent will keep it cool also. You might wanna take out the seats before you do this. Test fit is always a first before you start. Style points are added here because the wires are all hidden. The only wire you might have minor trouble with is your sub wire(s). Pics coming soon....
