Is it safe to mount an amp on the sub box? - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

nevermind, i figure dout the perfect solution, my friends dont call me the master of ghetto rigigng for nothing, what i will do is attach some hook screws onto the box and some loop bolts onto the turnk ceiling, if i need the spare i just lift up the box and lock it onto the ceiling while i get the tire

Just don't put them on the the trunk lid...lol You could mount your amp to the trunk lid itself. I would just be worried about the lid gettin slammed down by someone and then the amp rippin out and slammin to the floor and breaking something.

You can also use free air subwoofers, just build a baffle board about 6" from the back of the seat, we have the ski pass threw in the middle so this should work, I have used this type of an enclosure before, you must make sure though that the air is separate form front to back. SQ is good, SPL was a little under what a ported would be, if you are looking for hard hitting with low bass extension I would go with a sealed enclosure. The lows you will get from a sealed enclosure is no where near what you would get with a ported, plus the ported box is more design specific to the Thiele/Small parameters of the speaker. I have tried both in cars and I have found that sealed is the way to go, allot more forgiving in box design. plus the ladies love them lows!!!!!!
