I have NEVER seen a stereo amp mounted under the hod. I would think it would see even more heat there than under the seat. I have a 5 channel Alpine amp under my passenger seat and barely gets warm. Mine however is a digital amp. If you have a more old school class A,B, or AB they will definitely get much warmer. I like your sub. I sprung for the JL Audio Stealthbox for mine. It was a lil pricey at $750.00 but sounds awesome. Nice truck. Looks like everything was well though out and built for purpose rather show.Stereo and electrical:
The stock stereo only stayed in a week, and the sound system and alarm came out of my 2007 and in here.
Garmin GPS bolted with self tapping screws into the center console and held on the other side with pieces of steel brackets. Under it is the cellphone boosting internal antenna.
2 USB Apple Lightning cables, ON with Main (red) power switch.
2 phone holders just below vents
Voltmeter showing 11.75 Volts. It is not ON normally, only used to check how much I have depleted the battery when using electronics with engine off. When it gets to 10.5 Volts, the car probably won't start. Hence the need for a Jump Starter.

1/8" flex cover runs to the left, another up, and the thicker 3/8" flex cover is for GPS/cell booster cables. 2x Micro USB cables are showing, they had their use in the past, will in the future, they are loose ends for now.

The subwoofer also came out of my 2007, it was custom built from Fiberglass layers in 2007. It is a hollow box with layers of fiberglass cloth dipped in liquid (took them a few days to layer, dry, repeat). Then it was covered with carpet material.

External antenna for cell phone signal boosting.
On my 2007 it would stand up on top of the roof. Eventually it scratched the paint. Now it's on the fin of the roofrack. For best reception it should point up, but for best garage entry/exit it is better this way. No more garage entry slapping.

The 4 channel amp for front speakers is mounted in the engine bay. Originally installed in 2017, to address the heat coming from under the seat where it was. Open windows and air circulation contributed to the heat waves. 2 bolts hold the 3/16 thick channel (L shape bracket, amp bolts into the side not showing), and that holds the amp. In 2020 the amp had to be replaced after one channel started to occasionally cut out the volume.

2 big fuses held by zip ties, and the jumbo 150amp fuse mounted at the far end (the newest addition, used for the engine bay amp only)
The big fuses use 3 connections for 2 fuses (1 is shared). And used to go to 2 amps (now 1) and probably radio completes the 3 count.
