Where can I mount my amp.

I have a JL Audio 1000/1v2 that I wanted to mount on my amp rack behind my rear seats but it won't fit. Does anyone have suggestions or experience on where I should mount this monster, I want the rear to look stock and not have it protruding out plain in the open. The dimensions according to JL Audio site is:
Height (H) 2.36 in / 60 mm
Width (W) 19.7 in / 500 mm
Depth (D) 9.25 in / 235 mm

I don't think you're going to find very many places where that beast will fit. Can you mount it vertically behind the rear seats? Less than ideal for cooling, but you should be okay as long as you're not playing at max volume continuously.

i measured under there but there is a little hump that stops me from going further and it only comes out to like 10-12 inches

I saw this picture from a while back but I don't know who did them. But I don't know how they did it. I wouldn't like to cut into anything.

If you cut the buckets out of the rear storage it is really easy to create a clean looking amp rack. Here is a photo of mine while I was re carpeting the truck.
