|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.|
|yeah, same here. |
|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 |
|definately at the driver's feet.|
|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. |
|how much poly-fil, fil the box?|
|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.|
|i took it out and cut a new piece just the same size so I can replace it if needed.|
|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.|
