I'm having an amp installed in my 2005 elise, I am thinking of having it mounted on the back shelf like I found in this picture. Will this block / mess up the motion sensor for alarm? Thanks!

I have an alpine pdx5 velcroed on the carpet behind the drivers seat

The amp won't overheat behind the seat... Some people install it in the trunk space, the cabin is much cooler. Plus, amps run pretty cool now-a-days.

I have a sub box mounted over the sensor. The sensor still works, although I turned up the sensitivity prior the installing the sub.

It will make your car heavy and you deaf at the same time.

The Alpine PDX5 is the go to choice for our cars. If you don't need to put the seat all the way back, just mount it to the carpet behind the driver's seat.

Unfortunately the pdx5 is no longer available... it's (Alpine) replacement depends on if you need 5 channels or not.

Yeah I actually ordered the Rockford Fosgate R600X5 5 channel amp. Its actually smaller than the PDX-5 in width and height and 2 inches longer. Going to velcro behind the driver seat! Running it with the JL stealth box :)
