New member here, with a request for opinions. As the title says I'm going to be installing a Polk mm100 10" Subwoofer in the cockpit of my Four Winns Horizon 200 bowrider. I'll be powering it with a bridged 160W RMS. I know that from an acoustical perspective boats are a mess, still I'm wondering if I'd be better off downfiring the 10", or direct firing it. I will be building a sealed box to the recommended .66 cubic foot volume. Thoughts?

    I know this is a old thread, but for those who might stumble across it, the answer in this situation is a direct fire into the cockpit area sounds the best.

    I agree, I recently built a subwoofer enclosure that went into my center console and it sounded best when rear firing toward the cockpit. just be sure to bring enough watts and up driver size to compensate for no cabin gain.
