I am on stage 2 or 3 of my build. the Elmomoble that started as a barbie jeep. Looking to add a amp to the thing. I have an idea but need to find a AMP. Any ideas on a mini amp small enough to fit under the seat without to much weight??? doesnt have to be really big in wattage. needs to be small in size. thanks to all that reply.

Just about every I.c.e. amp maker has small amps designed to push mids n highs. U will def need another battery..

Have you considered amplified computer speakers? They are fairly cheap, small, and would include an amp and matched speakers. You may be able to find a 2.1 set that's small enough to hide the sub-woofer/amp box, so you would only need to tear the satellite speaker enclosures open and mount those speakers somewhere.

Fast, Reliable, and Cheap... Pick any two.

An eq really isn't much of a power up. Will help dial n the sound quality, not that there will be much quality being n a powerwheel wich will hold the accustics about as well as a concrete wall

well I already have it mostly set up my mids and highs are great now i am going for the lows heres a few pic there are 6.5s on the back of the seat, 4-tweeters under the dash, and i have a 8in sub under the seat but it is not yet in a box. the jeep runs on its own battery while the radio runs on another i might add another but not sure just yet may even just cahnge it out.
i have done more since this pic was taken but that gives an idea of what this machine looks like

well as for Elmo he is now on the seat as you can see. the muppets are not dead yet you have to look hard and humt in just the right places. there is about 3in. of foam padding under the fur for some great padding and a comfy seat. If you want to call it a Drive-me-Elmo go ahead. cant wait to get the 4 wheeler so i can make them match and gotta make a trailer to pull it. thats what my daughter is getting for Xmas
