so my friend has a camaro and is getting subs. he wants to just seal up the hatch in the back and use it as the sub box. and he wants to put the amp inside the hatch (soon to be box). is this a good idea? cause i seriously dont think it will work out too good.

Well, its been done successfully before, but no its not the ideal location. There are possible over heating problems, sealing all those wires so the box stays sealed, it would be a maintenance nightmare, etc etc. The amp shouldn't take up much room, surely there is a better location than inside the box. Id even mount it to the box (on the outside) before I attempted this sort of thing. That sort of install is usually only done successfully by sophisticated installers doing a very tight-closed system with little room, or unsuccessfully by a noob who doesn't really understand the problems it will lead to. Which one of those fits your friend? :D

It would be a headache at best...

are the camaro seats too low to the floor to attempt an under the seat deal with a fan to keep the air moving past it?

just get a mtx thunderform for it. That's what I had in my firebird and it sounded pretty good. Won't give a huge amount of bass, but more than enough for the inside.
