Default Subwoofer install on 1800MX

Hey guys, new to the site here! I have an 08 1800 MX and i'm looking to add a subwoofer without taking up additional space. Has anyone installed one under the drivers dash? There is a fiberglass wedge between the footrest and the seating area. I'm not sure how much airspace there would be. Any replies or advice would be great, thanks.

Welcome aboard!!! I haven't installed one in a boat, but many other members here have. Someone will chime in shortly, I'm sure. Best of luck.

I may have to scratch this idea...I looked closer at he footrest/wedge and it appears to be filled with foam. Guessing for buoyancy??? It wouldn't be hard to clean the foam out after cutting the hole but I don't know if that would cause problems removing the foam. What do you think??

Word of advice before you cut he hole make sure you have enough space behind also Remember the sub face is bigger than the hole.... I installed an alpine on my boat with a jbl amp. The difference from before and after is amazing, so for me a sub is a must..... Good luck with it!
