    Default Sub location issue ?

    Hey Guys, I'm new here. Just picked up my first boat ( Monterey 190 ) and getting ready to put in a new sound system. My problem is sub-woofer location. My only real option is in the back engine compartment, which has tons of room, with a 12" sub for enough airspace. I MAYBE could fit an 10" or 8" Sub under the drivers console and a small box, but then leg room could suffer. The engine compartment has 4 air escapes for ports, 2 going forward along the side and 2 heat exits in the rear. I'm curious if I will be able to hear it good being inside there ? All my friends have theirs out in the open and they rock, Ive never seen one in a compartment. THANKS !!!

    Put them under the console. If you put them in the engine compartment the output will be greatly reduced.

    What he said, under console. Tried installing 2 solo baric 12s in a back hatch of a friends comp ski boat, had air vents into passenger area. Even with over a 1000 watts rms wasn't very loud unless hatch was open. I recommend a good slot port enclosure. 10s rock pretty hard with enough power, even if its only one.
