Installing AMPS behind NBS extended cab rear seat?

Installing AMPS behind NBS extended cab rear seat?

Postby Firehawk_1066 [OP] » Jan 28 2013, 5:59pm

I recently purchased a 09 Silverado extended cab and would like to install a stereo with subs and amps. In my old 01 Silverado extended cab I put the amps on the wall behind the rear seat. Is this still possible with the new body style trucks? I want to know what I am getting involved with since I see the NBS trucks have the split folding rear seat. I tried to look for pics of others who have installed it behind the rear seat but didnt turn up with any results for the new body style trucks.
Does anyone have some pics they can post or has anyone done this yet with a NBS extended cab truck that can give me any tips or pointers?

thanks

They make a box where the amp will fit in a groove they made in the middle of the box.

I will have 2 amps and prefer not to mount them to the box for two reasons. First, being trapped under the seat like the will prevent the amp from properly dissipating the heat in generates. Also the shockwaves produced by the subs will be transferred to the amps if they are directly mounted to the box which is not good at all for all of the soldered joints and components within the amp.

I really want to mount them behind the seat, I just want to know if there is room back there in the NNBS trucks like there was in the previous generation

IF your subs are going under the seat, and you want to mount the amps behind the back seat, your answer is yes. I mounted mine on my back wall, just got some self driving screws, and mounted them to the wall, screwed it threw the metal and it looks good, and works perfectly

Yes I am putting the subs under the back seat and want to put the amps on the back wall. Im glad to hear there is room back there in the new trucks...Did it affect the ability to put the rear seats up?
