Anyone fit a KTP-445 behind the dash?
Either above, behind or below the OEM head unit? Just curious if it can even be done.

should fit behind the Stereo just fine.

there is space below the factory head unit - behind the part where the AC controls are, it at a guess looks like it will fit and as AkumaMax said room behind too, goes back quite a way. I hid all kinds of Alpine AINET boxes and Sirrius radio back there behind my 'dead' factory head unit for many years. Not sure how hot that gets but it seems to be built not to care, no heatsink or warning about leaving a gap but still, that would be my only concern... I keep real amps in the trunk.

Thanks guys, I may go this route in lieu of installing my Soundstream Reference 405s. I know, apples and oranges, but I was disappointed to see the Soundstream wouldn't fit under the driver seat as I had thought.

I think first and foremost I need to install my 2008 HU, Aux in and new door speakers which have been sitting in my garage for a year now. Then I'll worry about amplification or building a custom bracket for the Soundstream.

There's space under the stereo behind the cigarette plug. Some pics of my HK Drive+Play brain tucked back there (appears to be similar size):
