Default Where are you mounting your amps? Pics please

I have a 2013 quad cab and I'm looking for ideas for amp placement. On my last truck (Silverado excab) I had my 3 MTX amps mounted to a sheet of diamond plate behind the rear seat against the back wall of the cab. I was looking to do the same in my new Ram, but there is not enough space for 3 amps. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the pic. That is a very nice install you have. That is similar to what I had in my silverado except I didn't have those cab vents to deal with.

What amps do you have to mount? Mine are behind the rear seat in a quad cab, the longer amps on the outside are 19" in length each.

ImAHemi thanks for the pic. Have not seen Zapco amps in quite some time good stuff for sure. The amps I running are some old MTX stuff Bluethunder 752 (rear doors), 1502 (front doors), and Thunder 8001 (subs).

How do you access the back wall. What is the secret to drop the back of the seat. My Ram is less than a week old so o have not yet figured that out.
