More input is needed...as in where or what or how much...I like mounting amps hanging from under the rear deck using all thread and lock nut's and washers...can hardly see it when trunk is open and harder to remove than most thieves would care to spend stealing yo chit! Here's my fiance's car...

i hate when i see people do this
defeats the purpose of a heatsink
lets all that heat radiate right back up to the board..AND if you actually have some bass that rear decklid will flex like a mofo

proper installs usually deter thiefs if done properly

wow that wiring job is totally not acceptable for me lol
heres a simple secure way of mounting the amp and battery
and a fan too

just build a "box" a good 3" taller than your battery..and the length of the amp
use blocks inside to secure the battery ( youll have a big empty section now)
use that area to hide your wires n such and simply cut a square hole for the fan and remove the back of the amp so it blows on the board..
screw that box down to the wood platform you already have

thats just because im super anal about the little things lol..
dont get mad.. i told my best friend this morning his wiring lookd like ass too lol.. cleaned it up for free because it bugged me that much
i stopped him mid demo and shut it off and went to work lol

also with the box idea you will have room for 1 more xs power battery if need be
or you could get metal L brackets bend em slightly..screw them to the wood platform you have and screw a panel to the brackets
( look kinda like a 45 degree panel basically) and finish it off how you wish
