    what car is it...

    on my mk4 i thought about cutting out the bowl for the spare wheel and blanking it off from inside the boot.

    then get a holder like on a saxo so it can be fitted underneath the car.

    not got round to install yet so aint had a play with the idea...

    Get a custom set up.
    Amp mounted in parcell shelf and 2 X sub mounted in sides of boot.
    When done properly looks like a normal boot BUT you still have FULL use of boot.
    Or the amp could be mounted to the back of seets.
    i sujuest you got to your local liberary or helfrauds and look for the max power books to see what im trying to explain.

    I wouldn't advise mounting an Amp upside down, unless its designed to be mounted in such a way!

    Most amps are designed to be cooled by convection.. by mounting the amp upside down, the heat will not rise up to the casing as its designed to do, but will rise up into the circuit board.
