    Ok, after retrieving your mind from the gutter; we move on. :D


    Those vents under the front seats made of black plastic that face the rear of the cab...do those suck in air for the recirculation mode or do those blow out? It's an odd question but it's a bit important to my install so I figured I'd ask to make sure. I didn't feel anything coming out of them but I wasn't sure on the different settings.

    They blow air into the rear if the vent selector is set to "Floor" or Dash and Floor.

    Hmmm, ok.

    Reason I ask is because I plan to mount an amp under my seat so I'll have to keep in mind the effects of the AC system in various temps. When using the cold air it would keep the amp cooler but the heat would keep the amp warmer.

    It's not at all a big deal but just more of a precautionary measure.

    Seriously thats exactly what i did with one of my amps lol!!!:)

    well maybe you could either block that half off or cut it out and plug it or, mount your amp underneath the Y ;)

    Then if the heat is on it will rise from the tube and not heat your amp to much or what not...
