    I did consider doing what you're doing. But I was worried about cooling, as it's a very confined space, so I came up with a good alternative - I stealthed a 2Channel Amp into the side of the passenger footwell. I can give u more detail/pics if ur interested. I take it ur amp is smallish?

    As above mentioned above heat i may be a proble if u put it somewhere confined. So I'd say that 12v 60mm PC case fans are your friends. I would cut 2 holes in the back of the glovebox and have one blow in, and one blow out.

    yep, 300watt kenwood is tucked away on bottom shelf.
    The back of the glovebox has been cut away.

    It houses the amp and the ps2
