    I'd like to install a Diamond D5 300.4 under my seat since it isn't fan cooled, but the damn AC vent is down there so I'm trying to figure out the best way to go about this. My options are:

    A) Remove the plastic from the vent
    B) Mount the amp over it using some custom risers (I doubt this will fit, but)
    C) Remove the plastic vent and use some custom tubing to rerun it around the amp
    D) Mount the amp somewhere else

    So if I mount it somewhere else, the logical place is behind the seats, but it won't have much airflow back there. Anyone have problems with amps overheating behind the seats? The D.5 is a solid amp and I don't want to risk ruining it.
