Stereo Installation

4 posts in this topic

I recently picked up a Sony CDXH905IP receiver that I plan on installing in my 88' Sylvan Backtroller. After doing some poking around it's going to be pretty tough to find a spot to put the stereo without cutting into the foam on either side of the boat. I've looked at some gimbal housing options to avoid cutting into the sides but they all seem to be too small for this unit. I do have an additional cuby located by the livewell pump in the rear of the boat but was wondering what people have used for converting a cuby into a flat, vertical location to install the stereo (making a false wall to fill the remaining space of the cuby for the stereo to be screwed into). I also thought about just making a small housing that I could sit on flat surface and somehow waterproofing it? I'm at a loss for ideas on this and the internet doesn't seem to be yielding much for results.

There's a plastic housing that a dealer can order that will mount to a flat surface on your boat. It looks like this:

It's also called a undermount radio mount.

Just what I was looking for... Never seen one like this. Now I just gotta track one down. As always, many thanks marine_man!
