Default Speaker Placement

Just thought I would post some pics of the speaker boxes I made for my boat. I couldn't find a good place for a pair of 6x9's, so I made these boxes. What do you guys think?

There is a pair of 6x9's mounted in the front about 8" from the floor. I have them powered off of the head unit. The 6x9's in the boxes are powered off of an amp. I have a 4 channel that I am using for the 6x9's and a 10" sub box.

You better re run the wire going to the speaker. Looks like you have it wrapped around your seat piston. That will eventually chaffe through and short out. Looks like ya did a good job making them.

Ya, I noticed that in the photo also, I got in a hurry to get out on the water and forgot to finish the job. I'll work on it next weekend. Thanks
