poke it under the passenger front seat, put some velco on it to stop it sliding around!

That sounds a bit dodgy - let me rephrase the question. Does anyone have a picture of their CD stacker mounted under a front passenger seat?

hehe .. the only reason I suggest that is for two reasons - firstly is it is easier to get to, you don't need to get out and open the boot. The second is it doesn't get knocked around if you fill the boot right up.

I've had mine under the seat for months now and it never moves, plus I can just lean behind and across to access it!!

Have you or can you get a picture of your set up?
I am thinking of turning the brackets upside down and mounting the CD stacker and brackets to a bit of wood and then fix it to the floor of the car so it won't rock around.

I may also put a kickplate over the unit to protect the front of the CD stacker from epople's feet as they get into the back seat.

I had mine mounted under my front seat. Sorry can't get you any photos as its since been moved to boot in wifes car.

No real problem with mounting. I had it screwed through the floor, (watch out for brake lines). Also had to make a slight modification to wire under seat for seat F-B adjust. This wire had to be bent slightly to clear stacker.

Access is good as passenger can change discs whilst car is moving.

true that! i had it in the boot of the au and i had it mounted on the back of the seat next to the amp so i had to have the seat down all the time to listen to a cd until i moved it. maybe mount it in the dash in front of the passengers seat, seen it done before, but only if there isnt much space under the seat cos i tried to put it under the seat of the au but didnt fit nicely, espec if ya wanna move the seat foward and back.

I got some brackets from Bunnings and will redrill the holes to align the cd stacker and then fix it to the passenger seat underneath. It won't rock around and should be fine.
