I considered doing this but when we surf with my boat we usually remove the back seat and have some fat sacs sitting right there. Not sure if its a good idea to have a 450lb sac of water sitting on top of expensive electronic gear.

Two 15" Kicker L7s bring the boom.
The smaller 205 may not have the freeboard mine does however.
Before upgrading, I used a pair of Kicker sealed marine boxes in the side pannels. The Comp speakers that came in it was weak, voice coil burned right through the dustcap. Upgraded to 10" CVR's with twice the power handling and noticeablly louder but nothing compared to the L7s.
Same thing as the back seat. When we set up to surf on the goofy side we have a big fat sac right behind the drivers seat. Using shallow mount subs in a box in the side panels is something i never considered but might be a possibility. I'm thinking under the dash by the kick panel is going to be easiest to do and make sound good.
