That's pretty creative. Have a sub firing back from the bow.
Only downside I can see is water and clean up. Build the box sealed with bed liner or something like it on the outside and build it to stand off the floor a bit for when the floor gets soaked.
Would be easy enough to just snake the speaker wires out from under the front seat.

Putting a sub in a box under the observers seat is a waste unless you cut a hole how to get the sound out to the boat. The minute you close the seat you will lose so much sounds. Under the drivers helms is a good option but I would again cut a hole to get the sound out to the cockpit.

Have you thought about adding a free air sub under the drivers helm or the stock location?

Ideally, adding a free air sub and cutting a hole is going to be the best route to get louder bass. I just recently added a second JL 10" free air sub and my boat sounds incredible.

As mentioned earlier, tape the area with blue painters tape, trace out the circle, drill a few pilot holes to get the jig saw blade started and take your time. Also, have extra blades because they go dull quick.

I did that for my boat. Worked great for me sound-wise.

I'd go with a JL 10 in the 2018 factory location. Added a 10 in my 2015 NXT 20 in that location and it so much better than the 8 that was in the 2017 mounting location
