have you installed those speakers underneath your seats yet? And if you have,Do you have any photos that you wish to share? How does it sound and what size speakers did you install there?

Did you do it yourself? How was it? Planning to install one too.
only thing about installing speakers in those panels under the seats,would be the mud and water getting in them.

I have heard of a lot of members putting them there.you can also buy the pods and install them in the front kick panel corners.

So here's what I'm doing with my audio system. Going for more of a budget install.

Pyle mechless marine head unit with protective case ($80)
Pyle PLMRA400 (4x100w) marine amp ($60)
*2 channels split to run the front and rear full range speakers
*2 channels dedicated to the 8" subs under the seats

-installing an 8" Pyle PLMRW8 Hyrda Marine sub ($30/ea) with XTC waterproof speaker baffles under each seat. The speaker baffles will keep mud and debris from getting into the subs speaker basket.

-installing two Pyle PLMR63 6.5" waterproof speakers ($45/pair) in the rear bed. Corner mounting them in the front corners of the bed facing the rear seat for the passengers.

-installing two Pyle PLMR66W 5" marine waterproof speakers under the dash facing the front seats. ($87/pair)

Total System Cost: $332

I am also adding speakers under the seat, a 8" sub will fit perfect under the driver seat. Relocating the battery to under the hood. Running 6.5" under the roof, put amp in the front with a aux input and volume control knob. Ill post some pics

here is my progress, the box is a perfect 10"x10"x10" and fits tight and nice. I went with the polk 8" marine rated. Will use the bolts from the seat bracket to hold it up. Coated it in rustoleum black, then coating it in glass. Mounting the volume knob and input line on the dash along with my switch panel. also showed how i am mounting the 6.5" to the roof. Cut some sheet metal to weld in. more pics to come.

I love the overhead speaker layout. Really nice job! I'm curious as to how effective the under seat subwoofer setup will be. The more I thought about the box being tucked under there, the more I'm beginning to think the motor noise will be a lot to compete with. I could be wrong (and hope I'm wrong cuz it's a damn nice setup you've built). I'm assuming you're not going with a head unit and just running a AUX line to an amplifier and using an iPod or MP3 player for your tunes? Also curious on how you are setting up your battery (or batteries).

I am curious too how effect the sub will be, its really effective with it not running! but still dont have it all back together to see once you are driving around. May just be a butt massage. I am putting the heat mat under the center console for heat and sound so hopefully that helps. ALso got a second fan and exhaust wrap for that heat issue too! I will have it all complete today and will post some better pics.

I've heard of guys using 1/4" Dynamat to line the doghouse (engine cover). It's not cheap ($75) but I've read that it significantly reduces the engine noise and such. The nice thing is that Dynamat has a adhesive backing which makes the installation of it fairly easy once you get your cuts figured out.

Curious to see if you could give an update regarding your under seat subwoofer setup, Steadystreamin. Curious to see if it works well, or if you had to relocate it. Thanks!

Update: The overhead speakers work great, they will scream at you. The sub is only heard when you are sitting. The motor noise is so loud its hard to over come that. I used the heat dynamat under the doghouse, which was amazing in making it alot quieter in the cab and also not so hot. You can sit your arm on the doghouse and not feel the heat. here is some finish pics.

I have put it up for sale now,
