The component speakers in my boat are under the bench seat in the back and under the bow seats in the front pointing parallel to the floor, and about an inch above the floor. The 2 speakers in the back are about a 2 feet behind the passenger and driver seats. The speakers in the bow are facing each other about 1 1/2 feet apart.

I've thought about re-angling the speakers to point up a few degrees and possibly diagonally a few degrees. I've considered making a speaker mount out of wood to adjust the direction, but then I thought about warping. Has anyone ever done anything like this or have any suggestions?

If you do them out of wood make sure you cover the entire ring with fiberglass resin. Make sure no bare wood is expose. That will extend the life of the rings.

what about an outdoor type sealant?

Standard method would be to build a birch flat back panel and an angled face panel, with stilts to create the desired angle, cover it in fleece and then apply fiberglass resin to make a hard shell. Sand, apply body filler, sand and vinyl wrap. Alot of work to obtain a difference-making angle. Just a wedge is unlikely to make enough of a difference. Then you've got something that protrudes and is then prone to getting beat up. Either change out your speakers with ones that feature adjustable tweeters or better yet supplement what you already have with a pair of independent tweeters that can be strategically located and attenuated if need be to come into balance. You can elevate the tweeter position vertically but do not stray horizontally by any margin. $50 will be your only investment.

ok, well I guess I should thank WW for saving me a bunch of wasted time. It seemed a lot easier in my way I'm going to do all the fiberglass stuff.
