    Amp mounted on trunk ceiling?

    Has anyone tried mounting their amp on the trunk ceiling? I was planning on having mine just sit on the trunk floor... but I want to get slightly creative; nothing too complicated though. Anyway the thought popped into my head... I'm going to go look at my trunk right now and see if I can run wires up there cleanly.

    Thanks for any feedback.

    My system is too loud and if I did that I think I would make the amp fall off.
    There's probably a way to do it, but the install will be cleaner and more reliable if you mount the amp somewhere in the trunk bed.
    You'd have to make the wires long enough to reach the amp with the trunk open, and it might be difficult to make it look good.

    Yes, you're right. I took a look at the trunk and realized it'd be difficult, but also I just dont think it'd look that good or be anything special. Thanks for the input.

    most amps are not designed to work upside down. In fact, the cooling fins on most won't do you any good at all upside down. The cooling fins are used to dissipate the heat, which of course rises upwards.

    Most amplifier manuals specifically recommend against this. If you do it, you'll probably find that your amp overheats and shuts off quite often.
