i had a regular car sub box in mine before, when i took it out to replace it this year it came out in rotted pieces. the particle board they're made out of doesnt do well in moist environments. i switched to the kicker marine box this year which is a platice housing with a 10 inch sub. it sounds real good and will hold up a lot longer.

Yea im just gonna test this setup see how i like the sound, then make a better fitting / more element friendly box later on...

I dont think I could run 1300watts to the kicker 10"

Roll The Speaker Box With A Paint Roller And Fiberglass Resin And It Waterproofs It. No Worries Ever After That With It Getting Wet/damp

Its a sound quality crap shoot with an off-the-shelf ported sub enclosure. You don't know what Thiele Small parameters its designed for, what the tuning frequency is or what the 'Q' is. Usually these are just designed as single note, peaky resonators.
Also, is that really a polyurethane bedliner coating or just a rough finish latex paint?

Agreed completly. But remeber this is going into the cubby hole of the boat, SQ is going to be very difficult to achieve anyways.

We just had 36hours of rain, and everything stays pretty damn dry, im impressed. The sub adds a nice bit of bass to the boat, but it gets very muffled in that compartment. I dont think there is much else i can do... I mean dont get me wrong, it is much louder, but not the same as keep the hatch open...

I plan on building a smalled 1cubic ft sealed box, (mainly for space reasons) and see how much different it sounds.
