ok so i went to a car audio store today and found the amp i think im ganna get... the guy sugested just screwing it to the top of the enclosure i have right now.... i thought that was cool but kinda borring... so the idea hit me while at work in the mill... put the amp on a clear piece of plexi or a covered piece of wood and have it lay flat on the box untill i hit a switch then have it tilt at like a 45 or less angle toward the opening... my question is... what would you sugest i use to make it tilt up? im thinking id have to hinge the front in some way and have something to lift the back end... any ideas, sugestions... anything but flaming... its kinds 2F2F but i think it would be kinda cool if it was done right... thanks in advance

a cheap actuator should work fine...nothin to break the bank, unless the amp is like 50lbs. A power antenna motor would work too...be creative

Linear actuator or power antenna motor should both work. The power antenna motor would be cheaper, but probably not as powerful. As far as the hinge-you could probably use the holes that are already in the amp where you would usuaully use a screw to screw it down. Instead, attach it to a hinge, then attach the hinge to the box, or wherever you want it.

well, you might as well make a 2 in 1 and get NOS but redirect it to a pnumatic hammer and have the amp pop up using the nitrous. Plus you could add horses.

Actualy I am talking out of my ass, i'd go with the antenna motor or go to the toy aisle in walmart or target and see if something is already put together for you. It's a good idea, i may have to steal it ;)

Hire a midget to sit in your trunk. When you press the button, it gives the midget a little electric ZAP, and the midget then knows its time to tilt the amp for display.

Hehe.
