Our buddy Sham is thinking about installing a sub in his 209 and wants your opinion on where to put it?

I told him under the glove box area. (That is where I put mine and it has worked out well)

Let him know what you guys think. He is currently on a training mission and can not get to a computer to ask.

there is a location for the sub under the dash at the drivers feet. There is even a cut out in the fiber glass under the carpet - take a look.

Sham, I am not 100% sure however to answer your question. Yes, the grillle of the subwoofer should be facing the driver
if the sub does mount there

Yes, just feel the carpet - there should be a hole!

The 209 does have the pre-cut opening for a 10" in the driver foot well, but if you are looking for tight and hard hitting bass, you may want an enclosed sub, not free air. In my old 209, I had a small efficient enclosure for a 10" JL that was very hard hitting.

Here goes a slight thread jack but I have the same question for the 79S&S. Where to put the sub? Im thinking about stuffing it in the closed bow area if it'll fit w/ a box. Any suggestions?

does anyone have pics of subs in the storage area under the glove box in a 209/x9? I have considered adding subs to the storage locker in the rear of the boat, but i am not sure how good they would sound once i put items in the storage locker.
