i live in florida and get caught in the rain all the time. i have a jl audio 300.4 and 500.1 from a previous vehicle but i am hesitant to mount them anywhere in the jeep. i think i might downsize the watts/size of the amp in order to mount it somewhere that it wont get wet.

so the poll is to see how many of you have aftermarket amps.

feel free to post up where/how you mounted them and if you have had any issues.

hmmm. have any pics of how you mounted it?

id like to keep my jl amps but im still sketchy about them getting wet. my ideal place to mount an amp or two would be up in the dash somewhere.

Look up Zapco amps.


Spend the money.. thank me later.

x2 I ran Zapco in the early 90's they were top shelf then and I here they are just as good today. Ran them with Toby speakers and an Alpine headunit, Clear as a bell and loud as hell.

I'm with mikey, I'm getting a JL 900/5 in the next month and will be putting it in the dash where the stock ones go. I love digital amps

The JL Audio 900/5 or the Alpine PDX5 amps work great and will both fit in the factory location in the dash of oem infinity amp if you absolutely want it to. If at all possible I would mount it where it could get more air flow.:smokin:

Agreed . . plus these digital amps dont produce much heat
