Where do you mount your amp?

I need some advice!! I have a 2010 RGC with a set of Focals in the stock location and I am wanting to add a set of inner fairing speakers. I have an Arc 125.4 mini inside the fairing between the right glove box and inner fairing. My question is where can I mount this amp so I can install a set of inner fairing speakers? Any pics or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

I tried mounting a smaller amp away from the boxes and it interfered with installing the outer fairing. best option if you really want fairing speakers there is to mount the amp in a saddlebag and give up some storage. I ended up forsaking the second set in the fairing due to cramped quarters. I will eventually get a set of saddlebag lid speakers if needed...

Will you amp fit on top of the radio? Personally I use Hawgwired amps because I can have 4 amps in the fairing with no problem. If the amp will not fit on top of the radio, the bags may be your next option.

I mounted mine on the side of the radio.. Inner fairing speakers dont do much so I will now just run the amps on the inside.

What were you using for inner fairing speakers?

I think it would be more accurate to say they didn't do much for you. Made a big difference for me. From one set of Polk MM6501 to adding a second set of MM651's in the inner was a big difference. For the OP I put my amp behind the media player I replaced the factory deck with. It's a little soundstream. Works well for me.

I have was using focals and polks.. They cancel each other out facing each other and it doesnt do much for the performance just like adding subs to a bike. If you are in a parking lot then you are good.. Much better to use that space for amps.

To each their own though if you like them then you do..
