Re: (phuz)

Was that meant to be a joke?<p>I was thinking of doing inside the trunk, but I can't seem to find a good place for it.<p>I thought the seat backs were built with wood or something but I came to find out the carpet/backing is cardboard-like. Doing the hatshelf is a little difficult because of the amp being wider than the shelf. I can't really mount it vertically in the boot because I can't go through the wall or I need some sort of piece to stand it vertically.

Several Volvo models have an amp installed under the seat from the factory. I have the amp installed under pass. seat as well (Ok, I did it myself). <br> BTW, you havent provide any information what amp you are taking about. It makes difficult to offer a suitable solution.<br>

Re: (Papa_Kirlo)

Kenwood KAC-744.<p>I looked at the (assumed) front passenger seat and there is no space whatsoever for amp the size I have. I didn't really see anything that could be removed from that seat either. <p>I was thinking of putting it at the very front of the trunk on the floor (laying down)--close to the rear seats [sedan] but I'm worried the fuel tank is right behind/below the seats. Under the carpeting there is a grey metal and then the middle section turns into black metal and I can't seem to figure out what that is exactly.<p>I have a Chilton manual for the car (1991 Volvo 740 GL) but it doesn't show any illustrations of the fuel tank.<p>The amp measures 9" * 12" and 1 7/8" depth (1.875").

Re: (phuz)

I was thinking about the seat idea, but it's cardboard-like.<p>The best thing I can think of now is mounting the amp to some wood and then mounting the wood to the metal of the frame.

if possible, secure something to the four corners, and try to keep the bottom 1/4" or more up to help dissipate some heat.<p>
