However, size matters for this under dash location. I purchased the Alpine MRP-F300 to drive my front and rear speakers and it's too big for this location or any other location under the dash including side walls or firewall. It also won't fit under the driver or passenger seat. I have a 2005 Wrangler with the seats that raise up and forward to allow a rear passenger easier access.
It looks like it should fit under the dash but the heat sinks push against the heat ducts that run behind the kick plate and that's before I have the board mounted on it. So if you're thinking about this install, find a smaller sized amp. I'll need to return this one.
Dimensions are 9 3/4 x 11 and it's too big on both dimension. It looks like an inch less on both dimensions is the maximum you could go.
I returned the MRP-F300 and purchased the MRV-F300 instead (more money...) but this amp is 8x8 in size. After hours of trial and error I got it to fit. It misses the break pedal by about 1/8 " and leaves a 1/8" air space by the kick plate heating channel. Very tight fit but it works. I also came up with a fastener that worked far easier than a nut and bolt which proved to be impossible. I found a large butterfly toggle that mounts to a 1 inch bolt. This worked perfectly. Once you get the bolt threaded, it will spin and lock up on the side of the steering column so you can just tighten down on the bolt without struggling to keep the nut from spinning or fabricating something wierd to hold it.
Polk Audio speakers 4-6 front, Polk 5 1/4 in the pods and a 6 inch Quadratec direct replacement sub in the console and keeping my stock head unit. Sounds fantastic and painfully loud.
