    Im pondering building an amp rack for the back of my GTI. The amp rack will be either located on the back of my bandpass box, or to the side of it. Both options will have the amp and box either attached to each other or at least right next to each other.

    Do I run any risk of damaging the amp with the bass vibration?

    Where the hell did that come from? :rofl:
    Im just looking to mount the amp rack, not show off the electronics!


    Im going to go with a behind the box amp... With the back seats folded down, you should see the amp perfectly and be able to adjust as need be.

    Thanks guys.

    no, i ment that if you were worried about something rattling loose inside the amp, if you look inside, theres really nothing thats gona come off.

    its honestly not that bad ecept fo rthe smell

    get the main shape in mdf then get some sweatshirt material form teh fabric store and a gallon of fiberglass resin and a few packs of mat from home depot or lowes then strech the materal over your box till you get the shape you want hold it to the edges with contac cement of staples if you can tehm to work


    now mix p yoru resin according to the directions and brush it on till the fabric is soaked wait for it to cure then flip it over and start plainc 2 inch strips of mat to teh back of it for strenght the thicker the better let it cure then begin sanding an bondoing


    if idontgiveashit can do it any one can and he also did the paint on it it looks realy sweet in person its got purple metal flake in it
