Default Has Anyone mounted an amp to the back seat?

I was wondering if there was enough support in the back of the back seat to mount an amp? If so, what type of screws did you use and How did you rout the wires?

Back of the back seat, like in the trunk? It should work. You could use self-tapping metal screws and be creative with the wiring.

You could but I have serious questions on how long it will stay there. If you want to see what it looks like remove the rear seat and backrest. It'* pretty much just cardboard and not suitable for mounting anything with weight on to.

It'* just foam, you'd have to construct some kinda mounting system.

Whlie on this topic, I'm currently deciding where to mount my amp, and I haven't decided on anything yet, what are some good ideas for locations?

Mine has metal braces that look to be strong enough to hold an amp. Maybe that changed later.
