For my sound i went from pc to 4 channel amp. Make sure you grounded your amp. Did you? How is yours hooked up? Your head unit to amp? The lillput is to high? I take it you are not going to take it apart. Someone else on here did something like that with out taking it apart. Just depends on how ya want it to look like. The police have theirs angled up but to what degree i dont know. Smart idea.
