Add a set of speakers under the rear seat '08 x2
 
Has anyone ever done this? It would require cutting holes in the fiberglass, I realize this. But with the same speakers as the OEM I think it would look pretty clean. I am contemplating doing this and would like to see some pics if anyone has done this in any of the X-series boats really.

So I'm gunna revive this thread since I'm actually about to do this mod now. Does anyone know where I can get those back mount speaker pods behind the new speakers that you see in the pics from the earmark install link. Or if they are even necessary? Is it more for protection or sound?

They are called speaker baffles. Come in both rigid plastic and soft foam.
I recommend rigid for the physical protection of speakers. http://www.amazon.com/Metra-81-4300-...speaker+baffle

They will also help isolate coax speakers if heavy sub woofer movement is in a close chamber like IB or subs under observers seat.

If you need additional depth, add spacers. There are premade plastic or cut them like Earmark did. Use 1/8 high density foam rubber to seal between the baffle and spacers.
My install for inboat Krypts.

Would you use Polyfill in the baffles? I ask because I used the baffles you linked to with my db651s for the speakers that are in the walkway of my 205. When I installed them a friend told me to fill them with Polyfill. Is there any benefit it this?

Ahh OK I see, now I just need to find some that are big enough for the JL 7.7s that's what I'm using

Unless you feel those speakers will be in a high traffic storage area where damage is possible, I would not use an baffles.

They will be in the engine compartment. No traffic. Exact same spots as the ones in the x2 from the earmark link above

Honestly I don't know. I have not heard of anyone doing it for high pass speakers.
Using the correct amount of poly fill in sub boxes slows down the rear wave on a sealed box and can make it play like it is a larger box (deeper)

Decided to sell the boat as I'm going back to grad school. Already bought the speakers for this project tho. They are in the classifieds if anyone is interested!!
