I have posted 3 pics. Once is of the area where the amp panel is going to be mounted. This is the back area where you see the two larger screws and washers. The amp panel will be mounted to this wall.

The other two pictures are the two ways I am thinking about configuring the amps. Either way the amps will be thru botled and have some stand-offs so that wires can go under amps.

Amps are all Arc Audio KS and the shrouds are being removed and sent to sandblaster & powdercoater. Probably going with flat black> Amp panel will be epoxy coated and covered in marine grade carpet. All hardware will be stainless.

Which setup do you like?

staggered is the only way to go. Both options aer less than ideal for cooling, the other way will cause alot of thermal protection shutdowns on yoru amps. Remember heat rises.

These amps don't overheat and I have put them through the hot texas summers last year in a stacked configuration. You can hold your hand up against the amps and it will not burn you.

They are also set up differently. Heat sinks are on the bottom of the amp and each amp has an internal fan pulling air in and pushing it out via two different vent configs.

I am going staggered. Got the board cut and the holes all drilled and everything lined up perfect. Next step is to epoxy resin coat and to carpet over the weekend.

I am going to post a new thread with the progress.

Hey Murphy. You can also purchase a solar RV fridge cooling fan for like $39 to suck the hot air out of the storage locker to. The solar panel is like 3"x3" if you have a place to mount it? jet

Nope not too late. How are you doing? Are you living in Waco?

I will post up some pics when I get this project completed. I am going staggered since may amps are all the same size.

I actually have a 1000.1 sitting in the garage which I need to sell.
