If you want to make you amps discrete and still in the boot cover it with a thin black cloth. I use stuff that I got to make my speaker grills with.

I'm not even touchig the "7" topic! :-) LOL
JK will have a kick *** amp. Or a Pioneer 'Kicker' amp.

Hehe, i just PM'd you about this post of mine navin, because I didnt realise I hijacked JkDass thread, I meant to post this in the guru's thread... if you deem it necessary then make the move.

Anyway this install is pure SPL... Sends vibrations across the road. Not sure where the setup was done, the mat in the boot is covered up but it looks like it says "Gear". So my guess is that guys @TopGear did this install, it definately is aesthetically pleasing.

One thing he doesnt have a rear tray. And yes its a pity about the choice of equipment. Anyway to each his own

Now i feel that there cant be any better place than behind rear seat as amp will get maximum breathing space here.And amps do need lot of breathing space which i found last week while coming from Jallandhar after 2nd service of my car.

I played my system continously for more than 1 hr with volume mid high to high and when i cam home...man amp was HOT.
Just one hr? I play continously for more than 4 hrs when I travel; at high vol. So installation at rear ? Behind rear seats?

I do remember Gunbir's Santro install. BUt can i do the same?

And how much would two RCA's cost? I want those + amp power lead with fuse .

Hmm... playing at high volumes for long... reminds me of the Auto Expo when we had all our amps playing at full output non-stop 10-12 hours everyday. The Audison LRx1.400 powering the Mille 21" was putting out 900w into 1ohm...all day long... it got warm but never shut down.

JKD... If you install behind the rear seat, there is an issue. You know how the Santro's rear seat folds twice, if you install on the rear seat all those cables going into the amp will be a problem if you ever need to raise the seat fully. If you only ever fold it halfway, then you can install on the rear seat.

This one's a lil difficult to explain... see if this makes sense...

Remove the seat cover from the back of the seat. You will see a metal frame behind which you will see the seat foam. Now you will see the problem, which is.. there is no hard and flat surface to install the amp on...

Now, one option is... take a piece of .75" mdf. The mdf piece should be the size of your amp. Now insert the mdf BETWEEN the metal frame and the foam. It will be bit of a squeeze. Once your mdf board is in place, install your amp over the board. You may have to use long screws (1" length or so).

Cheers
