Default Mounting amp on back wall

Is there anything I need to be aware of before I put screws into the wall of the back of my cab to mount my amp?

unless its up at the top, it's only single layer steel IE your screws will stick out the back of the truck.

Hmmm. I don't know if I want that. Where is a good mounting spot? I have the extended cab.

Installer mounted the amps to the covered board which is screwed into the back wall.
The screws are low and no one will see them unless they know to look for them.

as long as you screw into the metal that the back panel screws into youll be fine just keep it in between the factory sccrews. with mine the top screws are bolts that are secured only to the removable interior panel and the bottoms are screw that screw directly into what the interior panel does

Boston G3 12" sub@2 ohm in a 1 ft³ sealed box-375 rms
4 infinity Kappa 682.9cf -100 rms
kenwood bt742u head unit

imo the new amps perform and sound exactly like my infinty did except at a cheaper price

tell me what ya think good or bad





dont mind the slighty dirty floor or fingerprints on the amps i had just finished when i took pics

the back panel is wraped in black carpet to cover the holes of the previous amp
and the look of my setup changed a bit the wires are group together more neatly the sub "L" brackets are now black and on the other side of the sub is a passive radiator and every screw is now stainless steel

^ Where did you get this box?? Is it a custom job or what?

You have a very clean setup here; what SPLs are you pushing?
