As long as your amps arn't covered up and air can get to them they should be ok. They're made to get warm to an extent. As long as they're exposed to open air and the gain is set correctly and they're not being ran at an ohm load they're not stable at, they should be fine. People have ran set ups with external fans to help keep the amps cooler, but if they're not getting super overheated I wouldn't worry about it.

^I have my amps setup the same exact way. Most of the time my seats are down,but when there up ive never had any issues with overheating. As long as there in that open area an not covered by something i would think they would be ok.

when put the seats down, it hurts output. there is a lot of discussion on this. glasswolf has a section on it. i think he is dead on. seats up produces more output. is it possible for you to mount the amps in front of the box or the sides?

"when put the seats down, it hurts output"

Really? Cause it seems its the exact opposite in my car. Theres a huge difference in sound with the seats down than with the seats up. At least in my car there is.

My amps are mounted UNDER the front seats. Including a class AB amp.

Pretty much as long as nothings touching the heatsink a few inches of space around it is fine.

You could try mounting a cross flow fan. I have this one: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_5283_PAC+CF-1.html
My cooling setup is a bit different than most. Here's mine: https://www.ecoustics.com/electronics/forum/car-audio/640043.html
Good luck.
