I know I know.  I don't see much activity in this area of the forum because everyone focuses on going fast but I really want some music in my boat.  I purchased one of the JBL Speedo size mount head units and want to mount some speakers up from.  I was thinking to Make some enclosures for the Fosgate M282 speakers I have but I don't know the best way to mouth them.  I've have a lot of history with car audio but not marine.  Anyone have any pictures of speakers mounted just in front of the front seats in along the sides and how they were mounted?  I get that I can screw from the top but how do I support from the bottom. Obviously I can't drill holes through the hull.

I glassed in some platforms for my subs to sit on...used lag bolts/right angle to stringer an thin marine foam glued to top inside corner wedging the front in case of hitting wakes. Amps are mounted on the inner side of subs.

Wow!!! Nice setup.  Gonna have to say that is way beyond what I was hoping to do.  I was thinking to glass up some pods on backboards and mount them on the sides.  I just couldn't see how to mount the bottom part without tearing up my carpet and glassing them down.  Might be easier to make some enclosures that mount the stringers but then they are going to be in the way of my feet. Was just going to mount the amp up under the deck on the support.

Something like this to run along the sides.   The speakers I have are Coax 2 way so no need for a spot for a separate tweeter.

I didn't build the one in the picture I just used it as an example but that is my plan. I've built many pods and enclosures in my old day of car audio.
