Default sound system suggestions?

So I am big into my sound systems. I have a 1994 sea ray rayder So I was wondering if anyone has ever put subwoofers on the engine hatch? Or should I just put one up front in front of the drivers seat? Or is there any other ideas where I should put one? Or two?

I have two 10 inch subs.

One behind the port helm panel...

One in the engine hatch.

Both are mounted in small boxes..then securely bolted to fibreglass.

System rocks!!

I think my engine hatch sub is a great use of available space..and if done right is a great location.

I highly recommend subs in enclosures...securely mounted..then a small port with a grille.

Good luck

You by chance have any pictures of them that I could see?

Here are a couple images that are pretty close to what I used. The enclosures I used are not marine rated but I have them in dry areas, and I have a trailer boat. 8 Years with ZERO issues. Top quality sound. There are literally hundreds of different vents and grills and ports that you could use to allow the bass sound to get out to the listening area. Just search the web or browse at a marine store to see what might work. Some subs are "free air" and dont require a box, but I have always used the regular subs with enclosures, hidden away, bolted securely to the boat.

I usually prefer to make my own boxes so I know they work good. And I think it would look cool to have the subs on the engine hatch but I just don't want it to be in the way if you get what I mean?
