Preferred Speaker Location on Lund?

6 posts in this topic

I just added the stereo to my Lund Rebel XL. It's time to add the holes for the speakers. I have a hole saw, but am looking for opinions on the best location for the pair. Here's my three options:

- Forward Bow storage area. Would sound nice, but probably not enough real estate here

- Wall of rear casting deck. I think my best option as access is easy and sound would be good. The aft jump seats when flipped down may be a problem though

- Side rod lockers. Would have decent sound, but would make rod loading tricky

Any opinions out there? I thought I had read that the Lund Explorer's had pre-cut areas if you looked for them, Just need to hack out a tab or two and it popped right out. Any such thing on the Rebels?

I'd probably vote for the rear casting deck wall. But not exactly sure what type of flipped down seats you are talking about.

In my pro v both speakers are in the bow area, the person up there gets blasted out by the time the people in the rest of the boat are liking it. Split your speakers evenly between the two and everyone should be happy.

Here's what it looks like with the seat up:

And with the seat down for the casting deck. Guess if I put them in the rear, I will lose some sound when the casting deck is out.

Doesn't look like there's room in the bow for 6 1/2" speakers anyway. Too bad, because I like the idea of forward and one rear. Side of the console is another option, but not sure how that would sound.

In my Mr. Pike I put one in the rear cast deck between the livewell and the battery and the other one in the drivers console. There where wires for mine but I just had to run them to the location that I wanted.

if you want to be able to hear it while hauling across the lake the cousole would be a good spot and up by the trolling motor is where i would put it other wise they would seem to get kicked in...

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
