good idea except that it has no air flow so the chances of your amp over heating is increased big time. if you have a reagular cab i would make a plate that would mount it to the wall at the bottom of the cab.

I've always mounted mine on the back wall underneath the window with four good self tapping screws. Never had any problems if you use a good enough screw.

That's what I did too, I just use Wafer screw and make sure they're good and tight. Never had a problem with it

i've got both of mine mounted to my rear seats...i have a 2 door, so i have the fold downs...i love them there cuz it's alot easier to hide the wiring, excellent airflow, easy to get too for adjustments

Ive never had a heat issue...even living in Florida with extreme temps. When i mounted this i considered airflow as an issue so i actually drilled a few little holes in the ac vent on each side of the amp so i could simply cool it with the fan or ac

with the holes it would add enough air flow for it to keep cool

If its small enough, under the passenger seat. It has the more area to work with Vs. the drivers side seat.

Just a thought...buy what about mounting to the back of the seat?

Just need to be creative to run your wiring properly.
