I am putting in a K&N come filer and therefore wont need my stock air filter box. I have a small amp i want to use to power my sub...anf thought for theft reasons no one will look under the hood for it. If i was to mount it in the stock fiter box w/ no cap- would i get enough cool air?
has anyone ever done this...Id really like to avoid putting it under the rear seat if i could.
I have the sub on trailer plugs so i can pull it out in seconds...that way w/ the sub out there would be no equipment in the cab...any ideas suggestions????

Id be real cautious about doing this, water can get in that air box easily, especially cuz it sits low, if you wheel in water or even drive in rain water can get in through the front of the box, if you could seal it somehow and still get airflow it would be a good idea. But water is the biggest hinderance.

Yeah...agreed water is the big problem. That and the heat from the engine - your amp isn't designed to be run around other equipment that is that hot. Plus, things tend to get dusty/oily under the hood - not a good idea if you're looking for a reliable amplifier. If it's got a fan, then it's definitely a bad idea. If it doesn't, then you're mainly looking at the connectors and potentiometers corroding. Either way, not the best of conditions. If it's small enough - perhaps you could mount it somewhere inside the vehicle say back under the dash or something? That will all depend upon your amp size of course. Otherwise look around under the plastic paneling for space.

mount ti under the driver's seat. thats what i did. its gets enough air to stay cool and is protected by the seat.

i would have to say they are all right about the haet thing. i got a jensen 400 watt amp i i thought about putting it in the glove box with a couple of fans one to push the air in and one to pull it trough the other side but my amp is too big and j.c. whinety does not sell a larger glove box. but you can make one out of sheet mental and it does not take all that long . i had to mount mine on the wheel well and it is screwed in with some long screws that are made for a camper with a square head insert so if they do not hada that type of driver they will not get it
