LCD Moniters, where to put brain?

Alright guys, I have to have this Alpine IVA-C801 Mobile Multimedia Station-. They can't fit all of the hardware in just the head unit, so there is another box, called the "brain". This is about the same size as the stock amp in my gts. So, my question is, where is the best place to install the brain? Normal places include in the back somewhere or under a seat. Under a seat doesn't seem like the best place to me because wires could get in the way. Maybe I'm wrong. Let me know what you think.
Like everyone, I enjoy pictures, so if you have some of your brain, that's be great.

if it is the same size as an alarm brain i have a good place for ya. if you remove the center console (cup holders and all) there is a large space between the back of the cup holders and in front of the storage compartment. fits my alarm brain and all my cabeling nicely, it might fit that as well.

Just hide it behind your deck somewhere where it won't be messed with.

Same here...it's fine under the passenger seat but access is a bitch! At least the seat is low enough that it's not gonna get kicked by anybody in the backseat.
