I turned it facing the middle so the wires can be run under the console up to the HU. I ran the ground wire to the back bolt for the seat. Fits just fine. When I get a chance, I'll post a picture.

It fits nicely under the seat. I put it facing the middle so the wires could run under the console up to the HU.

Same question. How did you mount the c70 400 watt amp under the seat. Was it an electric seat or manual adjustment seat? What did you use for a mounting bracket. It sure is a shorter run of cables to the seat than the trunk. I was thinking of mounting the amp under the rear deck shelf, upside down, using the 4 mounting slots on the amp. I have the the large original bracket from the c70.
