Default Adding speakers to 2100SR

My 2001 2100sr(bowrider) only came with two speakers, 1 mounted under the throttle lever and in the same spot on the port side. Anyone have experience adding another set of speakers in the bow or toward the rear of the boat? I can't seem to find a good location to cut a 6.5 inch hole in my perfectly clean boat to add these. Thanks for any info!

What is the challenge with finding a location. Length and Width on the surface? Depth on the back-end? Access?

What problem are you trying to fix by adding 2 additional speakers?

The only two speakers on the boat are mounted low and on the fabric covered gunwale. The sound does not make it to the bow without cranking it up real loud and causing distortion. The Regal we looked at prior to purchasing this boat had 6 speakers in it and sounded great, it was also 15k more than we got this one for. I was hoping there might be someone with the same or similar boat that has added speakers up front so I can get a better idea of where to put them before I go cutting a huge hole into the fabric and plywood up front( thought this boat didn't have as much wood as it does, prior to purchase).

Search in the sport boat section as I have seen folks post on adding speakers. May have been 2 years ago when they posted.

Is there enough space under the seats up front?

Funny no sport boat owners have chimed in.

I searched, some crazy installs with subs and hundreds of dollars in amps. Not looking to do that. Think I will just live with what I have. I guess there are not a lot of sport boats around anymore. Really appreciate the replys.

No need to give up. There are still people willing to help. What is the space you're dealing with up front? Any pictures?

Mike, I have been looking at that install. In my younger years I would be all for that. I don't know that I could justify that expense to the wife. I do like the install of the front speakers. Shrew, I'm thinking installing down by the feet may be an option, what do you all think about sound quality from having the speakers down that low?
