for those with Hack's trunk kit

I have a couple questions about the baffle board that fits the 2 10's

when installed, does it sit straight up or does is it angled? is there clearance for an amplifier to be installed between the board and spare tire?

I'm looking at a couple options for amps and it would be ideal for me to place it on the baffle board between the subs but am concerned with clearance. I haven't purchased an amp yet pending these answers.

I'm looking at:

Alpine MRX-V70
MB Quart OA1100.5
Rockford Fosgate R600x5

Thanks

I would not advise adding an amp to the back board. Even if it would fit (which I doubt) there would be a lack of air circulation. I attached my amp to one of the hinge covers in a way that allows access to it's settings from outside the car.

The baffle should match the seat angle. I have put amps behind the spare, on the baffle board with no problems.

So how much clearance are we talking about?
