mounting an amp?

ok so i am finally goona mount my amp in the cobra so it will quit sliding around the trunk and coming unplugged.

whats the best way for me to do this? just screw to the back of the seats? i do take the box out occasionaly so that i can haul things so i would like to take up as little space as possible.

Mine's mounted to the box. If I need to remove it, I just disconnect the fuse, power, ground and remote on wire and yank it out. Some might say the vibration from the box isn't good for the amp, but I haven't had one die on me yet, so who knows.....

my box isn't big enough to do that

Don't need a fan. Mount it to the back of the seat and run the wires down so the seat can still fold. No big whoop.
