i know that you have raised the false floor by 4 inches, but have you taken into account the heat conductivity of the amps under the false floor, because if you havent especially on cheaper quality amps this could seriously reduce the life and performance of the amps.

wot sort of amps are you using?
wot power supply are you using?
how many amps you using?
wot fuses?
how many remote wires you using?
wot are the neons connected to?
you know that you can get the neons to come on with the amp and when the boot i open, this way it saves the battery

right, I have got a 350w SPLX amp for my pair of 6x9's, and I have got a 800w pro plus amp for my 12" sub, the powercap is connected to the pro plus amp, and them 2 amps are hidden under the flooring.

To be honest I didnt consider the heat under there so I will have a good think bout that.

Not too sure what the fuses are, they are just the ones that came in the wiring kits I got for the amps.

I have got one remote wire from the head unit to the pro plus amp, and then a second remote wire from amp1 to amp2 which I heard was safe to do.

The neons are connected direct to the battery, and I have put a kill switch in the middle of the wire which is situated on the dash so I can just turn them on and off. I did think about having them to come on with the amp but I wouldnt want them on all the time (when driving) so I just did it that way.

well ideally, the remote wire should only really power one amp, in an ideal world it should have a switching relay bulit on to it and then it would be able to feed more amps, cos the remote wire is only supposed to carry a low load

is the feed from the battery for the neons fused, or is a straight live feed

are the fuses normal blade fuses or are they tubular shaped, you got 2 live feeds for the amps or just the one from the battery??

why not put the earth wire for the neons to your boot switch and then when your live wire switch is on for the neons they automatically come on when you open the boot and automatically go off when you close the boot. Saves you driving with them on all of the time smack

i havent got a boot switch scoob frown Just the manual lock and key

Right, neons is one big long straight live feed to the battery via this switch.

The fuses for the amps are the normal blade fuses. And I have got 2 live feeds for the amps, one each, the live feed for the bigger amp goes via the power cap and the other live feed direct to the 350w SPLX amp.

and are they just electrical switched to open your boot from the inside eg. button mounted on dash?

I would need to get one of them eventually anyway for when I get the boot smoothed over

no, think you have got the wrong idea mate, the switch will turn the boot light on inside the car, if you find this switch and then you can wire your neon up to it and there you have it a functioning neon light only when the boot is open
