looking for help on how to build an amp rack for three amps to fit in my 2006 malibu V-ride. Thinking about putting it by the passenger's side in the storage area. Already have two batteries, going to add another, and a 12" sub. Thanks <BR>Chris

Joe, thanks! I tried to search for it on the discussion board but couldn't find anything. guess i'm an idiot! wonder why the rack is curved? wonder how it is held in place? <BR>chris

The amp rack mounts against the bulkhead in the passenger compartment. If you were to look into the passenger side storage area...the amp mounts against the back wall. It is screwed into the bulkhead <BR> <BR>The curve is for the side of the hull so that it is flush. I will post more pics later this week.

here is my build. i stole some ideas from Murphy. 3/4" birch with fiberglass resin to waterproof it. The nautique has a place to screw this right in, not sure about a bu. <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752489.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752490.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752491.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752492.jpg" alt="Upload">

Here is my first stab at a boat amp rack. It was last winters project for me. I ended up using marine grade plywood. Amps are what I had and will be upgraded as needed/money allows. <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752546.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752547.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752548.jpg" alt="Upload">

Man I can't wait to start on my amp rack now! I will post pics as I build..thanks for all the help <BR> <BR>Chris

Here's mine. I used <a href="http://www.alucobond.com/alucobond-start.html" target="_blank">http://www.alucobond.com/alucobond-start.html</a> for the rack, it's a 1/16" layer of super durable plastic sandwiched between two 1/32" layers of aluminum. The result is a super strong and stable base that when the amps were mounted does not flex at all and it's super easy to work with and is waterproof. Mounted the bottom to the floor reinforcing rib and the rubrail backing at the top, eight points in all. Covered it in oem carpet to finish. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752601.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/3183/752602.jpg" alt="Upload">
