I have a '06 WRX TR, and I'm trying to put in a really nice sound system. I'm not too concerned about it being ridiculously loud, but I'm a sucker for high SQ. To that end, I went out and bought a JL 10w6 sub and 500v1 amp for the trunk. I want to keep a good bit of my trunk space, so I'm planning on putting it in a fiberglass box to one side. Should be neat enough, keep the trunk looked nice, etc.
The issue I'm wrestling with right now is where to put the amp. I want it up and out of the way, but I also don't want to block the pass-through to the cabin (I use it a lot). I don't want to build (or have built) a giant amp box or something - I don't need to show this car off to anybody. Have any of you done this sort of basic install with a bigger amp like the 500v1? Where did you put it? Do you have pictures you could show me?
I'd also like to do this myself (feeling kind of cheap right now), so any advice on how to attach the amp and things to watch out for would be appreciated. I already have a tube and an amp back there, so I've run the wires and am familiar with the electronics, but I'm still more or less a n00b at all of the mechanical bits.
