hey single cab guys.gotta question

hey yall im doing my stereo system and the area behind the seats is gone.now reading and searching i see some of you mounted yalls amps under the passenger seat.now how did you go about doing this?did you have to remove the seat,install and then place the seat back in the truck on top of the amp?im going with a kicker zx750.1 amp and i just dont see how theres enough room.the amp is little over 14 inches long,bout 9 and a half inches wide and 2 1/8 thick.any suggestions would be really appreciated cause the only other option i see is to install components in the doors and get rid of the factory speakers behind the seats and mount the amp on top of that area.btw my truck is a 2001 single cab

If you're going to mount an amp under the seat, the easiest thing to do is to remove the seat. It makes it easier to wire and bolt into place.

I have a 98 single cab and didnt have rear speakers so i cut all the plastics and carpet out from behind the seat and fit the box in that took up all the room so i put the amp on the passenger floorboard under the dash.

i have mine behind the passenger seat too..sounds like your amp is too big to put under the seat. My amp, if i remember right, is about 12 inches by 8 inches by 3 inches..there's no way it was fitting under the seat. Just mount it to the back wall and call it a day.
