Is industrial velcro enough to hold the amp in place if I mount it on one of the sides of the inner fairing slightly tucked behind the glove box? It wont fit on the radio clear the fairing.

Think the glue will give up with amp heat and weight. Using the J&M 4 ch amp like the plate design may can fabricate one from stainless or aluminum plate.

I wouldn't trust velcro to hold ANYTHING on the inside of the fairing! doesn't the amp mfg'er have a mount plate for your bike?
Make a mount plate to mount your amp like that for Hogtunes amps. I think you can buy a plate from them....

Hawgwired started selling a mount within the last year, however, I've been using velcro since 07 with no problems.

3m makes a product called a hook and loop fastener, or something like that. I mounted my Hawg Wired amp in the fairing two years ago has not come loose yet. It is kind of like velcro but more heavy duty. I used it to mount the first amp I had and difficult time removing it.

Have used velcro in fairing for arc, and sound stream amps for 6 yrs none have fell off. Have mounted my crossovers this way also.

After selling a couple bikes and having to remove my stereo components. It was a bitch to pull apart.

My Hawg Wired is in with velcor and no issues whatsoever. What amp are you trying to install. I would not trust velcor with a J&M as it is a lot heavier than my HW.
