I have 4 speakers in the boat. 2 just in front of the back seat. One behind the driver. That one gets blocked by the ice chest a lot. And one on the pass side as seen. I kinda wish I would of moved the CD player. But.... I like it because its easy to get to. Just not the holes on the deck.

This looks interesting if you haven't cut yet.
Drove a pair of white/blue 84 power slots at a ski school near Lansing MI for a summer. When the folks were looking at a boat it was down to one of those, with a lot of hours, or a new one in our preferred colors, but they didn't have it with the slot. Nice option, but we've never found an idea that we couldn't do with the 1:1. Would've been nice though. Beautiful boat.

They originally had a hole for the radio cut in the fiberglass under the observer seat. It would have been closer to the motor and facing the driver. Mine has the factory radio in it... or well...it did.

IMHO...if it were me, I wouldn't cut anything. You and make up a box using wood or fiberglass and attach it under the dash where the driver is....or remove the glove box and slip in a retrofit box. Or...carpet and build a box that goes gunnel to floor and mount the stereo in next to the driver's seat.

No glove box in most of these unless you cut it in. And under the steering wheel won't fit with most people's legs in there.

I think the ski show boats had multiline units and releases attached to the pylons for pyramids, delta kites and the like. I think the holes mate up with pins in these units to prevent rotating.

My setup:

-10" sub up in front of the driver foot rest with an amp mounted to the back of it.
- 5.25" coaxial's in observer seat base
- Component tweeters in the guage cluster on each far end
- Component tweeters right in front of the rear seat arm rests using the screw for the gunnel rails to mount them (you can see the little black circle in the last picture)
- Head unit in that white housing under the dash

Heres what I used in ours...

http://www.crutchfield.com/p_020CMS1...crv=6488535865

This is my set up for our 86 skier....
Its handy, probably not everyone's choice but under the circumstances, the clarion works just fine, remote head unit mounted under the bow hooked up to 2 amps and running 4- 6.5 Polk audio speakers, I used 2 pairs of the 1" component speakers / tweeters on the dash too. it does just fine for us.
the hour meter had to be relocated its all.
hope this helps

In the observer base using black grills and splash cover. Barely noticable. Head unit is not mounted in the second picture.

Beautiful install! I don't like all of the silver grills distracting from that beauty of a boat!
