If you're going to make it permanent. You could krazy glue it, then a small bead of clear silicone around the outside.

I'm worried that someone is going to lean on it in a summer or two and I'm going to have to replace it again. I wonder if Silicone would be enough to keep it in place. Something like an RTV?

If your attaching it just to the outside on the fiberglass and not actually installing the radio in it, I think just using clear silicone like you would use around a tub would work fine in holding it in place and if someone were to break it, the silicone could be cut away and easily removed to replace with another face (of course after modifying to fit the opening again). The RTV seems more permanent to me like the crazt glue. If you're worried about breakage, I'd want to attach it to where it would hold but can easily be removed if needed.

My PS 190 only came with 2 speakers, both stuffed under the observer's seat. They were terrible sounding. Actually, someone had tried to jam a 6" x 9" speaker behind this 5-inch hole.





Based on searches on TT, I found that Polks would be an affordable upgrade. I got 6.5" (Polk DB651) for the back of the boat and 5.25" (Polk DB 525) for the observer's seat.



They look good, and sound better. Thanks for the recommendations TT! Now I'm waiting for my amp to arrive so I can really power these.

Nice boat. I had an 87 PS 190 with the exact colors. Here is a thread with a bunch of photos that may give you some ideas.

My MB Quart 4.80 came in so I got to work mounting it up. This is a budget build so I will be using a cutting board from the kitchen that we never use anymore (because it doesn't fit in the dishwasher), a sample section of Trex decking from the local lumber yard cut into quarters and some 5/16" stainless steel bolts.



I think I'll throw a fire extinguisher on there for good measure.



Laying it all out, cutting holes in the carpet.



Drill holes for the bolts and boring out space for the heads so they fit flush against the hull. Epoxied the stainless bolts into each piece and then secured them to the hull with PL Premium.



And then, after a few hours of running wires, it's mounted. I think I'll need to see a chiropractor after getting in and out of that space about 20 times over the course of a few nights.



Also had some parts come back from powder coating. Just waiting on the rails now and this project is pretty much complete.

Before:



After:

That cargo space is fun isnt it?? I still have scabs on my knees and elbows where I got rugburn from crawling in and out of there many times. Yoga classes ahead of time would definitely have been beneficial.
