    Whats the biggest amp you can fit behind the glovebox?

    Looking at a 4channel amp to run components/tweeters up front and rear fill behind...

    Have seen an amp that is 33cm x 23cm x 6cm...any chance this will fit behind the glovebox? or too big?

    I would have thought thats to big and with it being a 4 channel one it could generate a lot of heat so it will need space around it

    Underneath the glovebox might be better?

    i was thinking if you dont have a airbag you could put it where the airbag would be and if heat is an issue then connect 2 heater fans to cool, the amp down

    Underneath might actually work. Might need some modifying but if you remove the feet cooling tube you may be able to put a lowish profile amp in there no problem.

    People might end up kicking it though

    Best bet is to take the glovebox out and cut some cardboard up and see what you can get to fit

    I had the SWD-2000 in the footwell, with the ducts removed there is a lot of room. You would have to remove the amp to get the glovebox out though once it is fitted.
