Re: new amp rack

Hey, that looks great, very clean how you made that rack behind it. I had that Alpine amp with the 50x4 and its a really good clean amp. From my experience they can take abuse and the heat, wouldnt that fit under the passenger seat if you wanted it out of the way?

I have my amps mounted to the underside of the car, out of the way taking up no room and the air flow is fantastic down there, just sucks when it rains and they keep shorting out.

You mounted your amps on the exterior/underbody?

Haha, hell no. I just wrote that for fun. Im not dumb. I made a false cargo floor to hide my amps.


Took out the stock cargo floor and installed framing then carpeted 1/2" MDF.



Now my amps are out of the way, and the JL's never overheat after hours of driving with it turned up.

Guess im kinda surprised then, my amps are completely enclosed under the floor and never had any issues with overheating. And why would you want your expensive stereo gear seen? I want mine hidden so no one wants to steal it. If you want it to be seen then id look into custom fiberglass work, but having only that alpine and that big sub then wanting a tool box back there too isnt really show off material IMO, J/S. Guess im not seeing what your going for. I dont mean to be ignorant.

Nah, I was just trying to see if anyone would actually think about installing an amp under the car after I said that. Its amazing how many people have no clue about things. If someone installs an amp outside of a car there an idiot in the first place and deserve whatever happens. haha.

I am talking about fiberglassing actually. the box the rack and the tool box will all look one piece. but the amp and sub will be removable for the rare ocasian(SP) i need to fold the back seat down. you'll see what i mean....

Re: new amp rack

Is there anyway you can remove the stock cargo floor, or is it basically sitting on the frame? Was thinking make a false floor, then you can hid your amp and have room for tools. Thats what I have now, removed the stock floor which is basically all plastic extrusions and useless, now I have all that usable space under there where I keep alot of tools and amps.
