on the back wall or on the box if your getting it custom made to fit behind the seat. if you mount it on the back wall, mount it low because there is more air movement closer to the floor and that will keep the amp running cooler

The installer covered a board and then mounted and wired the amps.
It is screwed through the back wall of the cab.
It's the cleanest install that I've seen on a Ranger.

hm idk how long they are. And no they dont stick out the back cause the srews are at an angle cause the sheet metal is angled underneath where is screwed in, if that makes any sense.
