    Default sub box and amp mounting.

    pretty straight forward.

    looking for ideas/pictures(preferred) on how you guys have your subs and amps mounted. mines a DD so i don't want to get rid of it. i used some self tapping screws once and with vibration they came right out.

    any help is appreciated.

    thanks guys!

    Mount the amp under your seat with some small bolts or machine screws & lock nuts. Then either seat belt the box in if you want it easily removeable or bolt it to the floor with some Home Depot angle.

    the amp needs airflow, under the seat may work but there may not be enough airflow to keep it cool
    mounting it to the box can kill it from vibration
    put it on the wall, put up a board then mount the amp to it

    Mine is on the back wall behind my seat and i used 4 self tapers that go all the way through the cab. Its nice to have it there cause its out of the way and out of sight. But mine is a silverado... dunno what your setup is like? I also have a box to go under the backseat. Cant tell i have anything from peeking through the window. I'd take a pic, but its about 6 big ass bolts to take my back seat out lol. Dont use any matting behind the amp though to get rid of vibrations. the amp can get hot and catch the matting on fire.

    single cab ranger. subs dont fit under the bucket seats. the amp might. ill probably mount the amp to the back behind the seat and the sub with some home depot angle shit like someone said on here.

    i mounted my amp to the top of my sub. then pulled the sub outta the box, screwed through the inside into the floor then put the sub back in. If that doesnt work, try 2 l brackets on each side aswell

    If your amp is a class A/B I wouldn't mount it under the seat because it will get too hot. If it's a class D then under the seat will work.

    you can always pull your bed off and bold it through the back of the cab? i built this box for my chicks truck and you can see the nothch kinda to the left of the second pic it fits right under the steel notch of the can and the pas seat just pushes back and hold the box from moving anywhere else...

    Really??? Not enough air flow under the seat? Where there is a 2"+ gap to the bottom of the seat?

    Oh well I guess its better to put the amp on the box behind the driver or passenger seat then push the seat all the way back up against the amp.

    Yeah I guess the amp with the seat resting on top of it will have way more air flow. You guys are fucking retarded.

    I've had plenty of amps mounted under the seat. The ones I didnt I dont have any more cause they got stolen. haha. Noone's pullin the seat to steal an amp.

    I have a 5 channel class A/B in my Explorer under the seats that only puts out 120w rms to the sub. I also have a class D under the seat in my Suburban that's putting out 1200w rms and another class D (600w rms) in my Cobra mounted in the trunk. I've driven all three from CA to AZ for business and the only amp I've had shut off from over heating is the A/B in my Explorer. The only way I can keep it from over heating on long trips is to put the rear air on with it blowing under the seat to help cool the amp.
