Here is my set up on my PS190. It is a 12" free air kicker sub connect to an approx. 2'x2' piece of carpeted marine plywood under the drivers dash. It has been in this location for seventeen years. IMHO it sounds great and functions well for the limited space on a older 190. As for all of the perfect harmonic applications, I could not tell you, but for listening to music between ski sets it works great.

Thanks for the idea, I did the same style for my X9. I did 2 Kicker CWRT 10"s. I used 3/4 MDF and then primed and Raptor Box lined outside. Used their tintable stuff.

If the same underdash as a 205v you can read my sub box construction and install which has dimensions and pictures on our forum.

I have a 2001 205v and built a sealed box under dash for a 10" sub. Pics, dimensions, etc are in my post on this site in case you want to follow my plans. Works amazingly better than the free air sub i replaced and should be adirect fit for yours.

Yea you did yours always identically to mine. I built mine and then attached it to the factory sub location. Sounds much much better now

Since its up underneath the Dash, I bought a pre-assembled box from the local car stereo joint. Put a Dayton Audio RSS265HF-4 10" Reference HF Sub (home audio sub) in it. Hooked it up, needles to say it hammers.

The sub is meant for home audio, but realistically, the sub is under the driver side dash, the boat is under a canopy, covered when not used, and rarely sees moisture.

I would not recommend doing this if the sub is going to be exposed. But being under cover like that, I saw no issues.

Unbelievable how much better it sounds vs the old Clarion open air sub.

Being a home sub- is it 8ohm ? if so, I might suggest a 4ohm sub- will produce better bass allowing you to get to a 2ohm load on the amp your running it on
