Space behind the headboard?

Postby Boatagain on Sat Jul 13, 2019 6:35 am

Does anyone know if there’s enough space (depth) behind the headboard in the v-berth for flush mounted speakers on a C30? The boat came with lil’ surface mounted rectangular cubes that get in the way when we’re sitting up reading or watching tv. Plus, they sound like #@&#. Thanks!

Hello,

There might be enough room for a set that are not too deep. I would say to install them in the wood but best to remove the head board and ensure there is enough room as you could drill into the anchor locker. If you'd like you can email me and I would then be able to send you photos when I am at the plant later this week? My email is in my signature.

Thank you,
Kevin Lamont

Why don't you just replace the existing speakers with better speakers?

That’s exactly what I’m planning to do, but I need to flush mount them so they’re not in the way.
