    I've got a place for one with the flip down cover for it, just no radio. It's infront of the pass. seat where the oh shiat handle would go. Is that one a double DIN? looks pretty big. Might make a small box and glass it in under the dash to keep it out of the way and not hack up the whole dashboard.

    Randall my first boat had some 6x9's in some small boxes infront of the front seats on the sides. Whoever made the boxes blended them in with the shape of the boat really well, and they were out of sight and out of the weather too.

    i have always had tunes in every boat.

    im lost without them.

    its my dash and thats where i usually like to put them.

    that way you can get to it easy when in the water and want to change station or CD.

    you can always fill the spot in the dash if you take it out.

    we mounted Dads up under the dash and it sucks ass to get to.

    Mine had one in it when I got it I added new speakers and it wasn't very loud so I put a small amp in it. I have two of the speakers in boxes with long enough wire that I can set them on the side of the boat so my buddy tint can hear it too.

    highly likely u will not be able to hear the tunes while running, but make sure that you are not too far under the deck, perfect spot IMO would be right beside the front buckets, facing inside, but then again more exposed to the elements.

    yeah if you put them under the deck in say the kick board area the sound sucks.

    i am going to build or have build boxes for mine to fit in areas around and the front seats and Rear.

    haven't looked at it much but that is my Plan.

    the new turd tanker has 10 speakers and a sub in it
