I'm looking to install a pair of speakers on my 2010 key west 176 and the installer said he was having trouble finding an area that would work. He told me that he would recommend putting them on the bottom portion of the console facing the stern. Does anyone who knows this boat have an idea of maybe a better place to put the speakers?

definately sounds like an easy spot. other option is forward of your rod lockers on the side.

Thanks for the post.
The installer also said I should stick with 6.5 inch over 7.7 (I plan on using JL MX series)
Any idea why he would say that if he was going to put them on the front of the console?

I just went through this last night on my 196. Assuming we have the same console, there's not quite enough room for the 7.7's under the access door. That is where I finally decided to put mine. (I'm going with 6.5's instead). I originally planned on mounting the 7.7's on the sides but forgot about what they would do to the compass.

I have a new pair of 7.7's if anyone is interested.

Does the Key West 176 have dual batteries in the center console?

No, I just have one in the center console.
