    Finally getting around to installing an LC 1.800 into my 16 sedan. I've measured under the driver seat and there's no way in hell it's going under there. I don't think it will fit under the pass either. I don't really want protrusion of the amp. Either way, can some of you who have installed an amp post some pics of it so I can get an idea? I don't really wanna put it in the trunk lol. My sub is having a custom box built to mount against the back of seat and rail.

    Thanks in advance!

    My dog

    a LC-1.800 is 9″W x 7.95″D x 2.1″H
    a ACM Series is 9.4″W x 3.0″D x 1.75″H
    I've been able to fit 2 ACM amps AND 2 Fused distribution blocks under the passenger seat comfortably. Stacking two ACM makes dimensions to be 9.4″W x 6.0″D x 1.75″H

    LC-1.800 should be fine under the pass. Just make an ABS plastic panel to mount it onto

    ...UGH

    I'm still gonna check once I get the amp. I just don't want it sticking out at all. But the rough guide I've made didn't fit deep in it. I also thought of that, but I'd have to remove the factory sub to do that and idk if I wanna take off the rear deck again :eek:
