    Amp Mounting Help Please!

    I am thinking of mounting an amp on the plastic ski hatch behind the rear armrest (on the boot side) of my 2000 5door sri. Has anybody done this or something similar before? Will it be safe to do this or could the heat from the amp melt the plastic or cause any other problems? Don't think the amp gets very hot. If it turnes out that this isn't a suitible place to mount the amp where else is a good place to put it?

    welcome...

    Should be fine...although the area is a bit small for an amp....

    Better bet would be at the side of the boot (the recessed bit).
    Is the amp for a sub, or components, or all !??

    Thanks
    It's only a small amp (300 watts) going to be powering a pair of 6x9s and a sub. Don't want it to be stupidly loud, just better sound quality. Should I run the power and speaker cables up the opposite sides of the car? Ran them all up the same side in my old clio and it sounded ok, couldn't hear any distortion or anything.

    If you want good sound quality dont put 6x9s in your car! Especially not in the parcel shelf above a sub!

    I would spend your money on a decent set of components up front powered by an amp and a sub in the boot!
