Default Speaker bezels?

Okay, many of us have gauge bezels. But, is there such a thing as speaker bezels? My speakers are mounted low in the cockpit and sound great while in the boat. But outside the boat you can barely hear it. Which got me thinking, if the speakers had a slight upward angle they would carry much better, similar to an angled gauge bezel but larger of course.

So, is there such an animal out there?

In my last 2 Boats, I put flushmount aimable tweeters near the front 2 bolsters. Lets you hear the radio over the wind and motor noise, as well as on the dock. i have my subs and 6.5's running off the amps, but left the tweeters running off the radio un-amped with a crossover. You don't want them amped or they will scream at you. Infinity makes a decent set. Here is a pic of the port side in my old boat.

Hiperf2000, I basically have the same set-up. One amp running the sub, one running the 4 6.5s and two tweeters hooked to to just the stereo. Sounds great when you're inside the boat. But when you're standing outside the boat or in another boat you can barely hear it. I think some"bezels" for the 6.5s that would angle them upward would help a lot.

I can see maybe having a hard time with a stock stereo system, but with one and even two amps you can't hear it on the dock? Yeah just like PWRQWST said, just turn it up brutha's...
