Most people opt to put in the passenger side cubby. It's dry, out of the way, and close to the battery(ies).2006 Supra 24SSV

did you fixed the amp to the ''wall'' of the boat ? or did you install a new wall. If yes, how did you fixed the new wall?

Not sure what Jfox did but I've seen several guys remove a small piece of carpet where the hull is, glue wooden/plastic blocks to the hull and then use those blocks as a place to mount an amp panel.
Creating a panel for the amp, opposed to screwing it to the hull will save you time in the cubby and possibly save you from any issues. A local shop around here screwed an amp to that outside wall and sent a screw through the hull of an X2.
I used a panel that goes across the back of the cubby, supported by blocks that were screwed to the floor or the bow seat back. The rack on the right side I did actually screw to the fiberglass but I think I'd go the block route if done again.

depends on the size and number of amps!
I utilized the hump in the passenger cubby to install 2 JL MHD amps but they have a really small footprint. Bigger amp boards and multiple amps may require different installation. Just another option!

Where to install my amp
This is my '08 Outback with an Exile Xi800.4 and Harpoon on the side wall, Kicker ZX1000.1 on the back of the bow seat. This is with a custom built battery box and the side brace cut to accommodate the dual battery setup;
Same boat, older system. Kicker ZX700.5, ZX350.4, and ZX100.1 - factory battery location with separate battery boxes;
If its just 1 amp your best bet is to put it on the back of the bow seat; nice and out of the way, far from the floor which is bound for moisture.BoatBling Moomba forum member discount thread
