Default Re: amp install

I took the cover off of the bottom of the trunk (the part that houses the lock for the hatch and the spare tire bolt) and drilled a ground. I used heavy grit sand paper to remove all the paint, and used a screw (also conductive) and have had no problem running my system.

Hope this helps.

Default Re: amp install

An amp produces some heat during operation, which its heat sink absorbs and radiates, so it needs a few inches of air space to stay as cool as possible. When mounting an amp on a side wall, make sure the fins on the heat sink are vertical. Never mount an amp upside down, as dissipated heat will radiate back into the amp.
