Here is what I came up with for mine. I have side compartments which worked great for the amps. Had to do a little reinforcement on the side panels. Bumpy terrain made the sides rattle.

This is the space stuffed with an amp. I have two of these and each holds one. I may add cooling fans depending on how warm they get. I haven't monitored their operating temps yet.

I ran out of space for my sub amp, so I attached it to the side of the box. Wiring is a little messy, but going to clean it up. Was just too excited to mess with it at the time.

This relay sends power to the amps.

I like to see what the operating status is for my components, so I added an indicator LED for the main amp power. But will add additional LEDs for the other amps as well as for main system power later.

I used this fuse block but need to change it out for a lower-profile one. It grabs the seat when adjusting it.
