    The reason i'm asking is i want to put a amp under the rear seat when i get my k5 and need to know it it'll fit, it is 10.25"W x 2"H x 24"L i just wonder about the 2 inches high, will that be ok while people are sitting there or not?

    The rear seat in my 85 sits flat on the floor so there is no room under there. I put my amp under the drivers seat for now. Future plans are to hide it inside the side walls in the rear.

    There's no room under mine. It also sits flat.

    NO room under the back seat. When I had my Jimmy a street vehicle it had an amp under each front seat, and then I put the big amp between the passenger wheel well and the arm rest for the back seat. I just tinted the windows really dark so nobody could see it. It stayed nice and cool up there and it never shut off, even after hours of hitting hard.

    Won't fit bud. I am making custom side panels for mine out of 1/8" thk. steel. I'll mount the amps, cross overs, and speakers in the panels. The panels will be covered with padding and fabric of course. I will also be putting in a cooling fan and a vent to have cool air pushing through the side panel. That way, when the top is off, all you'll be able to see are the speakers, and anyone who thinks they can take my sh*t will be in for a big SURPRISE! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif!! it will be a little while before I do this, but if anyone is interested, I'll post pics and a write up on the fabrication of the panels, interior work, and the finished product.

    Brandon,

    Bummer about that 24" dimension.....! A more conventionally sized amp (or two) could be easily built into the side panels or put under the front seats.

    Any chance you could exchange that MONDO amp, for TWO smaller ones? You might end up with the same power that way, and you'd have MANY more options for the installation.

    BTW -> You could also post in the "Audio" section of this site. A lot more people might jump in with ideas....
