WTF?? How to mount amp to bottom of seat??

Ok I just reinstalled my back seat to mount my amp under it. But I don't feel any wood or anything to mount it to? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

how are you going to mount an amp under your seat? doesn't it sit flush with the floor? or are you putting it up "inside" your seat? if so, won't it get too hot? also, if you do this, will you not intend on ever folding your seat up? i have mine bolted to the floor at the back left side right near te gate.

Agreed!! Bolt that sucker to the floor or attach it to a speaker box (if you have subs behind the seat). Nobody attaches an amp to the bottom of a seat!!

if you put it clear in the back, you probably won't be able to bolt it down unless you drop out the fuel tank. i just used self tapping metal screws and called it a day.

how about to the side of the wheel well. water could become an issue if it's on the floor.
