Mounting RF PBR300X2

Just ordered the above mentioned amp. My search skills must be lacking....I tried to do a search under RG Audio for how/where to actually mount it under the fairing of a 2011 RG and I keep getting about a million threads that don't necessarily relate. So I guess I'll start one. For those that have done this, what's a good place to mount it and how? I looked at the Hog Tunes mounting plates but with me having rudimentary sheet metal skills I have a problem paying almost $40 for that. Seems I've heard some folks mention mounting it with heavy duty Velcro on top of the radio...does that fit/hold and is there a heat concern? And others mentioned mounting it vertically on the wall if the inner fairing with hd velcro...does that hold???? Given time I know I could fabricate a mounting plate but that means the fairing would have to stay off longer...I was hoping to do this up grade in couple hours. I appreciate the wisdom and insight of those that have done this before.

You can also make your own mount out of some stock plate aluminum or steel. Here is mine. Its mounted on a Hog tunes mount. I did have to re-drill to fit the pbr.

I've been using Velcro with my amps since 2007, no problems yet.

I'm leaning to manufacturing my own plate, but still interested in the Velcro thing. Where did you mount it using Velcro?

Right now I have 4 amps mounted using velcro, 2 on the radio and 2 on the inner fairing where you see everybody else using the bracket. Since you have the RF PBR I would mount it on the inner fairing, they can get a little warm. BTW I know how you feel about the cost of the bracket, I think that's one of the main reasons I just stuck with the velcro.

Velcro: $8 at hardware store with like 8 feet left over! I bought a piece of sheet in case I wanted to make a bracket. But after securing the soundstream amp with velcro, I'm convinced that its going NOWHERE.

I bought a sheet of aluminum from Lowes then built my own bracket. Didn't take long. Aluminum acts as a heat sink for amp. Does it really help keep amp cooler? Hell-I don't know. However, I did beat on my chest and guzzled a couple beers because I built something with my own two hands!

Also, to OP, if you do a search for the amp (PBR 300X2) it will probably bring up a bunch of threads of how to mount it.
