    That could've been one of the possibilities. I am putting the coolers in so I wasn't sure if there was enough clearance for the sub to be mounted there.

    Unfortunately I don't have that. I hope someone with a 08 would chime in or you could make recon at the dealer and check back with us :).

    Yeh, I am also adding the storage under the rear seat. I doubt there would be enough room with the gas tank and storage tubs in the way.

    I have a 08 185 sport.. The factory sub is in the pocket next to the passenger seat. Its useless, not enough sound.

    looks like 2-6s.. not the greatest sound.. It was the last boat left at the dealer till the end of this month, so I ended up with alot more options than I wanted. Factory system is about to be yanked out.

    Yeah, we did the same. Thanks I was having a hard time figuring out how they could fit a 10 sub in there. :thumbsup:

    I had a hunch that's where the sub would be.... And I figured it would be that style....

    Don't know about you guys, but I have heard these type sub's and they just don't give the type "BASS" we are all looking for. Glad I waited... I'll be building a box soon for my 195 Sport...

    As soon as i get going, I'll snap a few pic's and post them up....

    Those just looked like 6X9's, and I cant believe they would take 25% of the storage away for the subs. I use those storage area alot on our boat. I would love to have a better sound system on the boat, but will not give up valuable storage space for it. We have alot of crap onboard though with our son onboard.
