I am in the process of installing 4 speakers on my 205.

Two speakers will go on each side of the CC and I was planning on installing the others towards the top the gunnels were the rod storage is.

I spearfish so not too many rods on board.

Is there space to run the speaker wires under the CC and into the gunnels or.... do I have to go the long way and run them towards the transom into the bilge area and then back front?

Thanks

You can run them under the console, under the deck sole and either up to the anchor locker and to the speaker locations or just up to the speakers. But you will need to drill/cut a hole in the flotation foam. So when you cut the holes for the speakers in the liner, the foam will be behind the liner. You will need to scoop out the foam behind the speakers or they will sound like crap. Use a flexible drill and just drill down through the foam into the open space under the deck. Push the drill (or use a fiberglass snake) down until it is under the pie plate or other location where you can get to it - connect/tie the speaker wire to and pull it back up the hole to the speaker location.

Damn. Not what I wanted to hear.

I gotta go home and look for other placement.

If I do cut them foam is it open celled or closed cell foam???

That's why I went with two speakers only (console)

I could also run wires from the CC to the transom then back up the side gunnels or bolsters or whatever they call them so the speakers would aim a couple of feet in front of the bait well.
