Default Where to place my amp???

I have recently purchased a Kenwood KAC-6404 amp and was wondering where to place it? Should I stick it under the driver's seat or find somewhere to mount it in the back? I have a stock 2002 pt cruiser...Pictures of where you guys have placed it would be great too along with other ideas, thanks

Mount it in the back unless you have adequate breathing room underneath your seat (not sure how big/small that amp is).

With one amp, the shorter the power wire, usually, the better transfer of power there is.

For example, if you were to run a 20 foot power wire, the amp would get less Juice, then if you ran only a 5 foot.

There is a formula for that. The Car stereo competition guys know the formula.

The amp needs to Breath though. For Practical purposes, the trunk would get the amp more breathing room. If the overheats, it can cause it to go into protect mode, and sometimes they don't come out of protect mode, and are then broken.

I have my 4 channel amp and my mono in my trunk. I ran 0 gauge wire, then used a fused distribution block to divide the power into each amp, at 2 gauge (mono) and 4 gauge (4 channel)

1980's Wrestling was much better than we remember. These characters are way past their time. Vince McMahon knew what he was doing!
