Let me expand a bit,

I have this setup currently, and have not had any problems for 2 years now. I just wanted to let people know of the possibility of any foreseeable problems.

Good luck with the installation.

: Good:

: Saves lots of space and looks clean

: Bad:

: The amp sits in its own heat. Hot air rises.

: :
: : You need to get another amp, I got a PPI from, I reccomend them or a rockford fosgate. I mouted the amp upside down under the deck lid of the trunk, you can't even see it nor does it affect the area inside the trunk. good luck, (way to go with jl subs)

: : : Hey Gang,
: : : I just picked up a pair of JL stealth boxes from EBay. I'd like to install them but have found that the factory amp interferes with drivers side sub... I was hoping to avoid replacing that amp at this time but it looks like it's time for it to go. And that means that I either need an exteran 3 way crossover or replace those front seperates with something else.. So, how are you guys mounting your amps? I'd like to minimize the amount of cargo room I use. I can just barely get all 4 race tires in the trunk with the rear seats down as it is..Maybe I need to make something that secures the amp inside the spare tire (turn spare upside down) and has quick disconnect wires so that I can remove it for racing..hmm..

: : : anyway, who'se got some ideas?
: : : -Matt
