    I've been reading the post here about mounting the amos in the rear side panel...just wondering how...are you mounting it to the plywood panel rhat you make, or is there some way to mount it somewhere else? (I've never had the panels off of mine, so I don't know)

    thanks

    The best way to do it is to mount the amp to a piece of plywood. Then mount the plywood to the vehicle. By mounting the amp directly to the metal of the car you can get a ground loop which causes the high pitched whine when the RPM's go up.

    My 79K5 had the 150 watt Fosgate amp mounted to the sheet metal for 5 years behind these side panels
