There is no room since the cooler storage is right behind the factory sub location. The sub barely fits.

Don't mess with the cooler!!! It is VERY important. In fact, going with a SMALLER sub will allow you to install a BIGGER cooler! Studies have shown that bigger coolers actually create an enhanced audible sensory effect as time spent on the boat increases.... Pretty much a no brainer if you ask me MC should add the "I CAN'T HEAR YOU, MY COOLER IS TOO BIG" option on the 2015 boats. Now we're talking!

I finally got the new boat, and now I'm up in the air about what to do. In the coffin area where my 12" sub, box, and sub amp were located, there is now the perco switch and some sort of giant carbon filter EVAP system for the fuel tank. There is a lot less storage and the box for my sub will not fit. The factory free air sub is lack luster and not very crisp at all.

I'm thinking that I should sell my 12" P3 sub and 1000W amp, replace the factory 5 ch amp with the 900/5 and sell the factory amp, and possibly replace the 10" free air sub with a 12" free air sub (assuming it will fit). I haven't measured, but it looks like it will be close to fitting. Tower speaker plan is still the same - Rev8's and separate amp that I already have.

Any suggestions? Am I on the correct path? I still don't think there's room to easily mount 3 amps inside the storage compartment under the port side dash.

Rating on the 10" factory sub is only 250W RMS. I don't think a 12" will fit in that location, not to mention that I didn't find much for 12" IB subs. At this point, I'm about ready to install my tower speakers and tower speaker amp and give up. Any other ideas?
