blower pickups are in front of windshield and amp is right below that - Thanks - will try to hunt one of these down. PVC would be too heavy and hard to try and mount - I would think at least.

What about a 12v computer fan from radio shack? Used one in my car a few years ago to blow air over the amp

Just asking the basics:

1. Is the amp mounted on spacers or stand-offs so air can get behind it, or is it tight against the carpet?
2. Do you stow your gear tight up against the amp, or is there space in front of it as well as behind?
3. Is the amp running an "easy" impedance for it (4 ohms vs. 2 ohms)?

If the answer to one or both of the first two is no--fix that first. Otherwise any local car audio specialist should have an inexpensive 12v fan like Rob showed that may help. That is a pretty large compartment and you shouldn't be hitting thermal protection on a regular basis.
