    Mounting the Amplifier and Sub

    Whats the best way for me to mount my amp? I wanted it ideally on the nearside wheel arch. Can I just drill through and screw it in, or is that going to cause problems?

    The sub will just be sat in the boot against the rear seats, is there any method of keeping it secure and not rolling around my boot everytime i go round a corner??

    Any advice appreciated!

    A lot of amplifiers don't like being mounted directly in contact with the cars bodywork.
    Best to get a piece of MDF or Plywood slightly larger than the amp, cover it in carpet if you want.
    The attach this in place using some screws & angle brackets, as required.
    Screw the amp to the board.

    To secure the sub box, cut a piece of MDF or Plywood, place it under your boot carpet. Attach the box using screws & angle brackets, screwing through the carpet to the sheet of MDF or Plywood.

    Passenger side should be fine, just don't use long screws. Drivers side, you have to avoid fuel filler pipe.
