This is exactly my situation and basically what I ended up doing. I got some cheap "L" brackets from a local home improvement store and secured them with some specialty bit screws, figure most crooks won't be carrying the correct tool
But I've since taken them off, mainly because my top is on most of the winter and sound resonates through the tub BAD when screwed down. I plan on getting a Dynamat trunk kit for the rear section which I hope will eliminate the resonating sound. Just as you said this set-up can still be stolen, but it will take more time and hopefully a crook will pass on to the next unfortunate victim
Sub amp is under my front seat and the location seems to work fine for me. I don't go through deep water/mud and you'd have to remove the seat to get the amp
Remaining amp and a signal processor are well tucked away under the carpet on the front section of my wheel wells. Small equipment rocks
