My amp is mounted in the same location. Inside galley next to cooler. Kinda a pain to work on as the cooler lid, cooler have to be removed to pull the amp out, but the amp controls are accessible otherwise, Has plenty of free air for cooling. I didn't realize the amp was Fountain installed, but it makes sense because I have a sub box that is FG'd in under the rear seat that was only possible to install before the deck was dropped onto the hull.
