I am installing a new sub in my boat.. Where do most of you prefer to mount your subs for best sound? Under the passangers storage compartment or at the drivers feet? I have a sealed box and plan on putting it under the drivers seat through the kick panel facing out, but just wondered what is best or recommended for sound.

on our last boat we had one ten mounted at the drivers feet and one behind the driver in the spare space between front and back seats (v-drive). In our new boat we installed a 15 in the passengers locker and a ten behind the driver. With a sub it doesnt really matter the sound is not directional , i would put it in front of your feet to save locker space

what about box materials and stuffing it and what not....I'm new to all of this.

If your going to build a box, I would suggest 3/4" plywood or MDF but plywood will last longer if it get's wet at all. As for stuffing you can pick up some Polyfil at any craft store or wal-mart for less than $3.00. I think almost everyone uses poly-fil in their sub boxes.

1lb of poly-fill for every 1cu ft of airspace!

How do you mount up on the kick plate in front of the driver do you make the exsisting wood their the front of the Box.

Has anyone ever made a sub box or free-air baffle out of that black (polypropylene) plastic the boat makers use for seat bases, partitions, etc.?

I know MC uses this (covered with carpet) in their driver well sub install, and I think it makes for a nice, clean factory look.

Where can you get this material, and can it be fabricated into a sub box?

not sure but I bet it will be spendy.
