I had a hard time planning how I would mount my M1XEP when I was considering the purchase, I couldn't seem to find info about mounting it in a can, so I thought I would post some pictures of what I ended up with. The M1XEP comes in a plastic enclosure which I removed it from. I mounted the M1XEP in my 28" Elk can with the Elk-SWG PC glides. Very simple and secure and saves space vs. mounting it on a Elk-SWP3 mounting plate.

 

It is mounted under my battery to the left of the ELK-M1XOVR output expander board. The M1XEP is powered by the 12VDC out of the M1G.

Another place that many folks use to mount the XEP is in the upper right corner of the can, right by the serial port connector.

Yup, as RAL said above, top right is the spot for me...

Granted, on my first install, I did it flat on a SW3 plate (right below DBH):
