How to mount amps? Advice please!

I'm installing my system and I'm trying to figure out how I should mount my two amps in the back. I'm just running a Q-Logic box w/two 10's. The box isn't nearly big enough to mount the amps on that.

The back of the seats feel a bit flimsy to try and mount directly on those. Do I need to make a custom board that will lay across the back behind the seats to mount 'em to or what?! There's gotta be a better way. Should I maybe strap them to the floor board or something?

I'm gonna go install my door speakers (rears are done) so that'll take me a few, please hit me up w/some suggestions folks! TIA

Yeah, I see it'll work now. I pulled up the plastic snapins and the velcro on the back of one of the seats and saw it's just a big sheet of metal underneath, perfect for drilling right into. Thanks guys!

Looks very nice mounted behind the seats as shown... if you're not going with a custom Fiberglass enclosure, it's the best way to go imo...

set your amp on the back of the seat, then with white chalk or something make marks for where the holes are (for screws).then you drill over the marks, set the amp back down, screw it on

Dammit, I just realized I don't have any way to screw the amps onto the seat. They're totally covered, I'd have to be able to pre drill holes and be able to get to the metal plate from the other side, which would involve taking it out of the seat, which I don't wanna do cry

w/e you do dont screw them to the box. The vibration from the subs will mess with the amp's internals. rice
