Default Space to mount amplifier?

Right now I have 3 lx series audison amps in my SUV. I know there's no room in my new wrx hatch for all of them. What I am thinking of doing is taking the lrx 5.1 from my Ferrari since I took the sub out, replacing it with one of my 4 channel amps from Suv and using the 5.1 in the Rex (when it gets here!)



Cliff notes: is there anywhere that I would be able to mount this huge amp? Its probably 24 x 8.5" (off the top of my head) Do you think I would be able to mount it under the rear seats? I also will probably be using a Bit-one for processing.

here is my setup in a 2012 wrx, with an amp that long this was the only place we could find to mount it.

custom mount it to the back of the seat or remove your spare (donut) and get a custom set up in the floor of the cargo area.

ETA: this pic was just before it was finished. there is a grill over the sub and the back panel sits flush now. it was about 1/2" too long and i could level it with the back seat up



i see your in Boston. AVI is pretty good.

i got this done in Saugus at Superior Radio and Security

I dont have any photos on hand, but I made a false floor for mine by taking out the foam and using 12 inch plywood. both amps are tucked underneath.

Was looking around at my friends hatch today. This is what I may end up doing. Doesn't look like there's much spare room

How is there any room for the amps with 12 inches of plywood?
