Amp locations?

Where are you guys mounting your amps? I am planing to add two or three amps to a RMS.
I am not sure where I should mount them; I want them to be out of the way and mostly unseen. Was thinking up behind the spare but there isn't a whole lot of room up there.

Here is mine on the Impala. An Impala SS wheel with a stock size tire I use for a spare does fit when I do carry one.

That is what I was thinking of going with, looks good. Did you just screw it into the back of the seat? Do you have a picture with the spare in place?

I don't have a pic with the stock size tire. I have ET streets on the spare wheels now. If you want I can take a pic with my ET street on stock Impala wheel in the same spot for you.

They are just screwed into the metal "bracing" not actually the seats but you probably meant the bracing anyways.

If its not too much trouble I would like to see what that looks like. I am trying to do as little drilling into anywhere on the car as I can.
I might make some kinda rack out of wood and have the spare tire hold it in place.

If u want clean and simple I would take a piece of mdf the size of that rear seat area and cover it in some carpet to match the trunk. Attach that to the rear seat bracing then mount your amps to it. I used to have it like that but I don't have any pics

Since I currently have on the OEM 9C1 wheels, and have a spare in the trunk, I installed mine to the bottom of the package tray.

I also used socket head fasteners, and Ny-Lock nuts to prevent theft.

Wouldn't that get in the way of the speakers?
