Default JL Subwoofer Mounting Location on Sea Hunt Gamefish 25

Trying to determine the best location for a single JL 10 on a 2012 Sea Hunt gamefish 25. Anyone mounted one yet?

I was considering removing the starboard tackle drawers and seeing how much space there is on the leaning post kickpanel. Seems like a pretty sweet spot to mount it. Anybody dug around in there?

Pick mine up today, will look around as well and get back to you.
JL system gets put in on 4/7.
Gonna be interesting on the Ttop speakers, not much depth.

From what I see in mine, the area in front of the console is about the only place. I would be interested what you find out removing the tackle center in leaning post.

I didn't use my t-top speakers for my stereo, I wired them for the vhf's and they work great. I added JL 8.8 to the gunnel and they sound awesome!

Could you mount it in your leaning post/tackle center firing forward? That's what I did on my Cobia 237.

This is what I am hoping to do exactly. I started to remove the tackle center yesterday afternoon, but then the weather cleared up and decided to fish instead . But from preliminary measurements of the depth on the two compartments on either side of the leaning post, it looks like there should be enough room. I will post pics when I expose.

The only difference in the Gamefish and the Cobia, is the live well is pretty large in the Gamefish leaning post.

Forward me a pic on the 8.8's, that sounds like a plan.
Pulled my front speakers today and looks like it could have enough room for 8.8's or 7's
Thanks

This is where the pie plate was for fuel hose access. These are the 8.8's

Looks good. I hope you are happy with the product. Can't go wrong with JL.

Looks clean... What size amp(JL) with the 2(6.5) and 2(8.8)'s, also where did you locate the amp?

I went with the JL 600/6. I have 4 channels bridged running the 8's. And the amp and auto pilot computer is behind the panel in the console above the batteries on a shelf we made out of starboard. Its a very clean install with nothing visible from inside the console.

Looking at some of the same issues on a 27 GF...

-Do you think 7.7s can fit in the vacated 6.5 spots for the front speakers?
-Any depth concerns replacing the t-top 6.5s with JL M 6.5s?
-Better sub location - in front of the console firing forward or in the leaning post firing forward? The 27 has full access to this area.
-What amp would I need for 2 6.5s, 2 7.7s, 2 8.8s in the gunnels and a 10" sub?

The 7.7's would be very close to fitting in the front. As far as in the t- top, there are pretty big buckets for the speakers.
The 27 does have the front of the leaning post wide open for a sub!

Well, I removed the tackle station, but I didn't have a tape. But judging by the pic, it doesn't look like I will have the required 5.12". My other thoughts are to mount it in the helm access door in the console. Anyone ever mounted a sub firing into the console? I wonder if that would sound good or rattle the bejesus out of everything.

Another location would be under the forward facing console seat. Looking into the console opposite location from the elec. access door. Could possibly put 2 10's.

Davidthg could you post a pics of the shelf? Do you still have access to your batteries?

Also, there is tons of room on either side of the leaning post. Considering relocating the two fire extinguishers on the port side compartment, and mounting the sub in there.

Yes, I have the same access to batteries that I had. The shelf just above the batteries. I will get a pic to tomorrow.
