    Has anyone successfully installed an aftermarket 4-ch amplifier under the passenger seat in a Fox? I have two Pioneer 4-ch amps and neither one stands a chance of fitting under the seat. Just curious if anyone has found a newer (and smaller) 4-ch amp. RMS power output needs to be 30-50W per channel.

    Thank you

    Have you tried the back of the rear seat. I have mine mounted to a board and attached to rail behind the rear seat in the trunk, but its a coupe. I might have the same amp a 4x50, and another cheap one on the sub.

    Yes I did
    About 15 yrs ago I had quite the system in my '88vert. I had a Kicker 250watt 4-ch amp mounted under the passenger seat. I had a Kicker 600watt amp and two 10" Solobaric subs installed in a custom built enclosure (by me) in the trunk.
    I spent alot of money, time and effort acquiring and installing the system therefore it was completely unnoticeable unless I opened the trunk or CRANKED IT! LOL

    It sounded great but I have since restored the car. I have removed everything except the head unit and speakers.

    Yep, same as above. Back in the mid nineties I had installed a 4 channel amp under my passenger seat and a single channel sub amplifier under my driver seat in my 88 notch. Great spot to hide them and so easy to install if you take off the seats first.
