Why do you want to mount it directly to the seat? Seems like if you need to flip the seat, you'd have to allow slack in your wires....

I'm confused.. pics?? I have my box mounted where the seat used to be... seat is sitting in my garage... that's my recommendation since you're not interested in keeping the seat.

Why not just remove the seat and mount it in the open space?

Dog hair... I'm torn between spending hours cleaning it every week or hours on hours cleaning it once and awhile... takes about 5-6 hours to get 95% of the hair out... ugh

You are positive it is the actual amp that is rattling? Seems like you should need to just tighten something down.

What were you using to mount it to the seat? May just need some better hardware to secure it down.
